how do i program orbit 6 for twice a day schedule 3 times a week.what is program B for.thanks

no more
Asked by: mo
mo, we'll use a hypothetical example based off the information you provided above. Say you want to water at 8am and 11am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You would set Program A to run at 8am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and Program B to run at 11am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Continue and complete your setup (number of stations, watering durations, etc) for Program A and Program B. We recommend you also utilize the Instructions/Assembly link (found in the INFO & GUIDES box, adjacent to the PROGRAM OVERVIEW section) on this page as an additional resource. If you still have other questions after that point, please feel free to contact our Support team at 1-800-488-6156, and we'd be more than happy to help. Thanks!

manual

old controller has manuall wire where does it go on this controller
Asked by: burns
burns, that is a great question. Unfortunately, before we can properly identify the root of your issue, such as what you meant by "manual wire," we'll need more information from you (including what product your previous controller was). Please contact our Support team at 1-800-488-6156, and we'd be happy to help in any way we can. Thanks!

power cable

how long is the power cable. i have my old one installed in the garage, and the closest elecI use the old wiring and power adapter with this or can I get this with a long power cord?
Asked by: mpn
mpn, the power cord is six feet long. If you want to use a different power source, it'll need to have the following power rating: 24VAC OUT at 300mA. You would have to splice the connector onto the end of the old power supply, as well. Honestly, should you choose to use a different power source, we recommend you give our Support team a call at 1-800-488-6156 - we'd be more than happy to walk you through it and answer any questions you may have. Thanks!

How do I set one station to run on certain days and another station to run on other days?

I want to water station 3 every other day. I want to water station 1 to water once a week. Station 3 I do not want to use at all at the present time. It is reserved for future use. How do I progarm this
Asked by: Dale
To do this use the AB programs. For the stations you DO NOT want to run on a certain program, make sure their run time is set to 0 minutes.

Can I hook up two valves to one station?

Asked by: 007guy
Yes you can, I do it on my controllers. Most manuals tell you that 2 valves are allowed on one controller station. Dick

what is maximum distance for output wires?

want to use old telephone cable wire to go from controller to valves which are about 100 foot away.
Asked by: Steve
stirfrysteve, the maximum working distance for any 18-gauge wire would be 300 feet. Beyond that distance, then water pressure would become a factor. At that point, it would probably be best to contact our Support team (1-800-488-6156) just to make sure that everything will work properly.

6-Station Easy-Dial Sprinkler Timer is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value, easy to install and program This is a basic timer, not a lot of bells and whistles, but it should get the job done for most applications with 6 stations or less. If replacing an existing unit, install should be very simple and quick, less than an hour. You do have to provide your own screws to hang the unit. You have two programs, A&B with up to 4 start times each which should meet most needs. I use program A for my sprinklers and program B for drip system. The dials are well labeled, easy to use and the unit is very easy to program. A nice feature of the unit is the next run time will flash on the unit so you always know what program and time is next to come on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work fine. Only had it for 1 week. This sprinkler timer was easy to install. Instructions were satisfactory.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from free would be overpriced 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 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Second season for this lawn timer and still operating flawlessly. The battery did not even die over the cold winter months. Easy to setup and operate and it continues to do everything I have asked of it but now unfortunately my lawn is outgrowing the 6 zone maximum and will have to move up to another product. I will highly recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would Give "Zero" Stars if Possible 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect. I purchased this item because I could not read the screen on my previous one which was a different brand. I was leery because it was so inexpensive. I am pleased that it works perfect and I can reed the screen Good timer.
