Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by robert It's a plastic timer
Not very accurate on time,
Doesn't always shutoff.
But it's OK for a $10 plastic wind-up timer.

This is easy to screw onto the faucet with the main benefit of turning off your water after a certain amount of time. Another benefit is that you might have water volume set a middle position, so when you move the sprinkler you only have to spin the timer dial and you get the same volume for a certain time.

No batteries to worry about, just hook it on, twist the timer and let it go.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Esparg Good shut-off time, but creates water hammer
This timer is a great cost effective way to run your sprinklers and feel confident they'll shut off while your away. Although keep in mind, this is a relatively cheap timer, so don't count on it if you want an exact time measurement. Also, when this thing cuts the water off, it does so very quickly, so it can create a relatively significant water hammer in your house. In my case it worked great when I was using City water, but when I used it at my new home on well water, it created some havoc with my water treatment systems. All-in-all. It is a good cost effective water shut-off timer.

This is a timer that is powered by a spring not a water wheel. So it will run for a designated time regardless of water pressure. Works well and is simple to use.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CowboyBob Failed after one month
After using for a month the timer would cause my water pipes in the whole house to vibrate and bang when trying to turn it on. At first it did it intermittently and then it started doing it every time within a couple of days. Must be the material the valve diaphram inside is made of. I am in Central Texas and just had 104 degree days that could have something to do with it. Also the summer heat caused the black rubber turn knob to turn sticky. Returned it to Home Depot.
They sold the Melnor brand till last year and I usually got 2 seasons out of their brand.
These cheap Eggtime style times were $7.99 till a few years ago. Now they are almost double the price and still very cheaply made.
They will crack and break in the winter from the freezing water if you dont take them off and indooors for the winter.
