Customer Questions & Answers

Does it require water pressure to run?

I want to use it to control water in a gravity fed hose. If it requires water pressure to push the timer, this won't work for me. But if it's just a spring type device, it should be fine.

The Orbit worked fine for a season and then started a dripping leak at the area near the outlet end of the unit.

I have checked all hose connections and they are leak free!!!

Is it normal for water pressure to decrease when using this product?

I have noticed that when I use this product, the pressure of the water coming out of the the spigot is significantly reduced. Is this normal? And if it is, is there any way to modify the product such normal water pressure is restored?
Asked by: ALopez7
This product may reduce the water flow but the pressure will not decrease.

do i have to turn it on everytime to run a cycle or

does it turn on automatically, run the time set, then shut off and repeat the same until it is turned off?

Home Depot needs to change the description for this item, which clearly contradicts the actual features of the item: "Battery Back-up,Digital Display,Drip and Soaker Hose Compatible,Manual Bypass,Odd/Even Day Program,Programmable" No wonder there are so many questions about its operation. Home Depot, please correct the description on the website for this item. It is MANUAL. Like an egg timer as Orbit rep stated.

Mechanical Water Timer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 107.

We had a new lawn put in and the landscaper had used these timers to water our lawn the first few days after new seed was put in. My husband and I then used his for a couple of weeks, and then bought our own. They are so handy as we have used them now for a week or so. I can turn the timer on and go do other errands/tasks without worrying if too much water is going all over the place. They work well so far and I'm thinking of buying a few for Christmas presents to family members.

The reason I bought this timer is to replace the original purchase which failed. The hose connector shown on the left side of this unit split while being placed on the hose with only a hand tightening. It appears the product had a faulty part which failed under normal operation. Suggest the Orbit company should investigate this weakness in its product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time for a timer Fall seeding no need to run my entire system so a timer, so I didn't forget to turn off the water. Timer is close to accurate no biggie. Stops well shutting off water. No leaks or problems. I move it from spot location to spot location. It appears to be made well, hope it holds up over time

I have used this type of manual Timer for over 30 years, They are good for spot watering when You don't have time to Hand Water, They need to be disconnected if it is used in a Zone where it Freezes as they will get damaged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timer for watering lawn This is a must have for watering your lawn. Rather than forgetting to turn off the water, spin the timer dial and set this timer for a specific amount of time. When the time is up the water shuts off. Flawless operation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke quickly I would wanted to give half a star (or less). It slams shut, causing significant water hammer. Probably because it operates so abruptly, it also broke about a month after I bought it.

I buy them because it is the only timer suitable for swimming pool use that is sold in stores. Sometimes I can get one that will last a year.
