Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave excellent replacement for the old mechanical timer
This timer was easy to install and has worked flawlessly since the power was turned on the first time. I like the way the display flashes between time of day and the time of the next sprinkler start.

Replaced an old analog sprinkler timer which was installed 30 years ago. The Installation went very easily and everything worked perfectly.
Pros Found installation instructions easily understandable. Mounting was simple to accomplish. Instructions for operation a little hazy but still easy to accomplish.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IrrigationCustomer Doesn't work and manual leaves a lot of information out
I have a irrigation well and found out the hard way that this doesn't work with any pump relay. After first run of the system, it left the well pump running even after shutting off the sprinkler valves.
Then I found out that sometimes it wouldn't turn on the pump when the scheduled time was reached.
The system showed a "P" and the word "Fault" on the display, but there is nothing in the manual or on their website that explains what that means. After waiting on hold on their support line for about 27 minutes, their support person first asked me what brand pump relay I had. It turns out that Orbit is not compatible with all pump relay brands. But, they said I could find their pump relay at Home Depot if I wanted to buy a new one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by trenchmonkey Gets the job done
Price is right and they're readily available (good warranty as well)
Easy enough to install/program (never needed to look at instructions)
Took away 1 star for the wimpy valve wire connections (gimmie a screw)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by phil 6 stations, but can only program 4
replaced one from a different manufacturer i had for 14 years, could only let program 4 stations. Calling the 800 number is a total waste of time as well as their web page which they keep redirecting you to as you wait on hold for 25 minutes. I emailed them explaining the problem, they said they would get back to me in 2 to 4 days. They wasted my time and money, don't them waste yours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dbj6 I like this unit as much or more than the original it replaced.
This unit was a replacement for an 11 year old unit that was missing LCD segments. It installed with no problems and works very well, has large easy to read information. It's only been a week, but I'm pleased with everything about it.

It worked after we set it up and is doing its job as it is suppose to. We have many more timers like it and love them.
