Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I needed It Works as advertised. An Inexpensive water saver. October 7, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by New "feature" makes it inconvenient to use After fiddling with it a bit, I returned this product and purchased a different item, from a competing store. I found the little catch lever (pictured adjacent to the outlet connector) to be awkward to use, and it appeared flimsy. I have two older Orbit timers that still serve me well; this was to be an addition to the collection. But that little plunger thingy is an "improvement" I didn't need or want. September 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it. I have a tendency of leaving the sprinkler on for a long time. September 30, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great idea I bought this for a soaker hose control, but after just two uses, it failed to shut off the water supply. Will look at other means and return this. September 23, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by I hope they get something better. I set up this timer on 3 of my spigots for watering my gardens, lawn and new trees. I used the same item last year as well. Each spring I need to replace two as they fail to turn them selves off. Then, throughout the season, I have to replace two or three more. In fact, I have 1 at home now that needs to go back. But, they have no other option, and it's the same product at the other stores. So, until they get something better, I'll keep buying them and returning/exchanging them every few weeks.
