Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BR549 Good Timer
Timer is accurate and functions well. It shuts off suddenly, so be prepared to hear water hammer. If you have high water pressure, you might want to consider a shock arrestor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ricksinet Two failed in less than a year
Had installed two at house. One in front yard and one in rear last year.
First have to agree with other reviewer that terrible bang in pipes when unit shuts off water. Can be cured by putting length of flexible hose between unit and house pipes since unit shuts off abruptly causing pressure wave in house pipes. Pressure wave is absorbed by flexible hose. Common problem with some clothes washers.
Anyway both units failed this year leaking terribly under timer cover. Both units were taken off before first freeze and stored in utility room. Worked a couple of times this Summer then one failed and the other soon after. Contacted manufacturer via email and they sent me a list of questions and have heard nothing back. At least a month

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DV Mechanical Water timer
I was ready to return at first watering as it set up a huge knocking in water pipes. Watering worked well but unbelievable noise inside house. I had never heard anything like it--make it sound like someone was jack hammering close by. I was busy and continued to use as it was watering when turned on. After about 10 waterings, the sound is goine. I have had water times for over 30 years and this was the only one which ever gave huge feedback noise in house (not used to any noise in fact).
I hope it will hold up as I am using it to water my garden area when things start weeping; unfortunately, it appears we may have a long hot summer.

needed a simple timer for the drip system add on.
I have a full 12 zone timer for the whole yard, but needed a separate temporary system for nursing new plants. I ran a separate line from the timer and now can set the drip for the new plants and not forget to turn it off. Simple to use and no leaks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by woodburner Great for watering a set time - and not having to remember to turn off the water!
This is a simple concept that works. I appreciate that it is mechanical, does not require batteries or even a solar panel and it works. I now have two.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ron It works
I had purchased an expensive lawn sprinkler that came with a timer integrated into the unit. The timer failed on the second use! Though this timer has to be installed on a sprinkler, it is as easy as attaching a hose, which you have to install anyway. You can set the timer in increments of 15 minutes easily and walk away without fear that the water will be running endlessly.
I would recommend this timer to anyone. It's affordable and works!
