Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TomKat I've never had so much trouble
Setup was easy and it worked fine. After a couple of weeks I noticed the stations weren't running. It appeared to be working but the voltage output wasn't enough to power the solenoids.
I returned it for another. Installed the new one and set it up in less that 15 minutes. It tested fine and was working great. A few weeks later I noticed the sprinklers weren't running. The unit appeared to be working fine. This time the voltage output began at 27 volts but dropped to 1.5 after just a few seconds.
I've never had so much trouble with an irrigation timer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pcdave not good luck for me
I have now had two of these in less than a year. H.D. replaced one after it failed in less than 90 days. the replacement failed in less than a year. I now need to call Orbit and deal with them for warranty replacement. i think i will just spend more money and get one that will last.

In retrofitting my high volume output sprinklers to low volume, I needed to replace my controller to provide better flexibility in programming. The tech that performed the retrofit recommended the Orbit Easy-Dial controller, saying it provided every function needed, was easy to program, and was very cheap. He was correct on all of these, but unfortunately I found out immediately after installation that my sprinkler valves were not coming on as programmed. The first day, they came on at different times than programmed. The next day they came on when that day was programmed for no sprinklers to run. I double checked the programming and found it to be as entered, the controller simply didn't conform to the programming. The third day returned it to Home Depot. No matter how easy a controller is to program, if it doesn't work right it is worthless.

my third and last time replacing this unit. i gave up trying interval as it would come on every day. so i tried just three specific days a week: Mon, Wed and Fri. it is Sunday morning and my sprinklers just came on just like the last one that LIKED to turn on Sunday even though not programed. This is not complicated to program and i checked A and B to see if i had a programming error - it does not show Sunday as being programed and yet still comes on... an email to Orbit corporate a month ago for the last one with the same problem still goes unanswered. Why is HD selling this junk?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cab18tocappycabc19 orbit sprinkler timer
. I tried setting it for Mon, Wed and Friday and it comes on on Tues ,Thursdays and Sat. There is a flaw in there system and orbit has not figure it out how to program it to do the odd and even intervals.
I wish orbit would take the time to correct this impairment in there system so as consumers we can put some faith in there products. I will not buy another obit timer

Easy to install and program. Unlike other units it has large print on the settings which you can see in a dim corner of the garage.
