I suspect the batteries should be changed annually no matter what because they will corrode over time.

Answer: 
They lasted a whole season for me (6 months) with juice to spare, but I'd recommend changing them every year. Corrosion, at least from water, isn't an issue (it's an O-ring sealed unit) but you don't want to have the batteries fail mid-season and have to find that out after your landscaping has already been damaged.

Answer: 
I have had mine for two seasons now watering every other day (on average) from April to October on the same set of batteries. This is for two valves.

Answer: 
Hi Dave. The valve requires three AA batteries. The batteries' life really depends on how often the timer is used. It is advised to change them annually. Thanks for the question.

Does this unit have a built-in pressure regulator? I'm looking for one that will run off a garden hose and not lose pressure from the device.

Answer: 
ramchips, this timer/valve is designed for use as part of an underground sprinkler system, not for garden hoses. If you are looking for a way to program when your garden hose/faucet will water, we recommend you consider one of our best-selling hose timers, the Orbit 62056. Please also feel free to give our Support team a call at 1-800-488-6156, and we'd be happy to answer any questions you may have. Read More

Answer: 
No pressure regulator, it's a conventional valve, just with a different (12V DC) solenoid. Should work fine off a hose with the appropriate adapter, but it also doesn't have a vacuum breaker or check valve so you'll need to buy those separately.

Answer: 
The timer, solenoid, and valve are three different pieces, so you can mix and match. That said, the valve included already is 1", which is the largest one Orbit makes of this type. That said, too, all automatic valves use water pressure to open and close, and unless your water tank is at least 30' above your valve (15psi) none of them will work by gravity alone and so you'll have to get a booster pump.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This really fills a need I have two areas on my property that have manual sprinklers but no electricity to run timers. I purchased two timers to take care of these two areas, and I couldn't be happier. Each of the timers controls two sprinklers. I even purchased another one to replace an electrical timer controlling four sprinklers to simplify the system. They are very compact but easy to program and use. I have been looking for something like this for a long time. I no longer have to manually turn sprinklers on and off and that is a treat in itself. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product Works great. Would buy the rain sensor to go along with it. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use valve It is a good product I'm a contractor and had no other resource for electric February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I needed This replaced my drip system controller. Easily installed and very reliable. November 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I needed I've only just installed this 2 days ago, so I can't speak to the longevity of the product just yet. But for now this is exactly what I was looking for in every way. I'll admit getting to the controls is a bit cumbersome but to keep the timer weather proof it's a necessary demon. The fact that I can expand the system was icing on the cake! June 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a great product for a garden! Installed this unit to provide water to my garden. Works great and was simple to install. May 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great alternative to running wires Very well made (it's the consumer version of the Hydro-rain HRC 990), easy to program, and beats the heck out of trenching and running wire for a temporary system or if you need to automate an existing system. I'd still recommend an indoor timer for new systems: It's kind of a pain to have to open the valve box to make temporary changes to settings (rain delay, extra watering during heatwaves, etc). No problems with the battery solenoids, but it is a shame you've got to buy the valves with the 24V solenoids and then throw those away and buy a whole new set when you switch over to a battery-operated timer. November 7, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Timer lasted one summer! I installed this valve and timer last summer. It was easy to program and price was OK about $65 (with shipping) However, after about a month, it turned itself on at unprogrammed times and ran for hours. I had to shut it off manually. Finally had to set it in the "OFF" position and operate the system manually for the rest of last summer. At start up this summer I installed a new battery and there was no display. So times, dates, start time etc. could not be programed. By the time this happened the unit was out of warranty. Poor quality for the price!! May 25, 2013
