Customer Questions & Answers

what is the timers main power source?

Asked by: Anonymous
The transformer needs to be plugged into any 110 volt outlet to supply the necessary 24 volts to the controller. The wire that came with mine was to short but it was very easy to cut the power wire and splice in a longer piece of wire.

Will this run on batteries exclusively?

My garden is quite some distance from the house. Will this unit run on batteries only, or does it need 110 v. constantly? I don't want to run a power cord (plus 4 water hoses) that far....
Asked by: JohnnyBob
I believe only for short period of time. It is mostly designed for power outage.

Does this timer have a manual start?

Asked by: dong
dong, yes there is a MANUAL button on the timer. It is located just below the bottom-left corner of the timer's screen.

My old Optima PRT-4/PRT-6 burns fuses. I'm planning to replace it with this product. Will it work?

Asked by: TSC
If your old timer's fuse is blown continuously, you have a shorted solenoid or lead wire on one of your feed lines! You MUST correct this prior to connecting to new timer! Otherwise, fuses will blow or timer will be damaged! The load on the timer is what blows the fuse, not the timer itself! Caution: Make sure your system voltage requirement (Valves required voltage) matches ANY type of timer! (usually wired transformers are 24 VAC) Be sure! If you aren't sure and not savvy to this type of work, get help. Don't make a costly mistake!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too easy to install... Had a $70 Hunter X-Core that went bad after just one year. They have a 2 year warranty FROM DATE OF MANUFACTURE. Found out mine was over a year old before it was installed, so I looked around and found this one. I only have 4 zones so it was perfect. The Hunter had separate screw terminals for zone wires and power. This has push in terminals for the zones and a plastic plug for the power. Had it running in less than 10 minutes. I figured if the controllers won't last very long (all made in China anyway) why not spend $20 to replace? Wait, this one has a 6 year warranty? Winning! No mounting screws so make sure you have some along with drywall anchors. Orbit makes indoor/outdoor and more zone models as well. I like it. Happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't follow the schedule. I tried this product twice (thinking the first one must have just been defective by bad luck) and had the same problem: it does not follow the schedule. I would come home and find it had watered on days/times it was not scheduled to run on. It would also miss zones sporadically, it would say it was on but it wasn't actually giving any voltage according my meter. I tried resetting it, replacing the solenoids, and having a professional program it just in case there was something I was missing, but it would still function incorrectly. This unit was housed indoors so I don't think weather or corrosion was the cause.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Little Timer Installed this digital timer after my 20-year old mechanical timer quit working. I bought it because it was cheap, and worried I might regret that, but after one year it works perfectly and is more reliable than the old more expensive mechanical one. The timer is half the size of the old one, and the plastic is flimsy, but it WORKS every day. The LCD screen is easy to read. It is also much easier to set with the big dial on the side. It came with good instructions. I'm very happy I bought this inexpensive timer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial review Just bought myself a new home! This was already installed (one in the front one in the back) I had trouble setting it up (due to say the construction workers leaving half the water on and half off) but after a quick call to the orbit company. i was talking to a real person very quickly. they helped me though the whole process of checking where the water was not getting into the system and gave me lots of great advice. i would recommend this company and product solely on their support. ( and the product is good to.) i'll see over the next week if it does any "ghost" watering.
