Customer Questions & Answers

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
Basic hydraulics at work. Any thing in the house using water is going to lower the water pressure. The water pressure at other locations can be partly restored by not opening the spigot for the timer all the way.

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.
Asked by: BAleiHi
The timer is run in a spring so water pressure doesn't matter.

My hose is 5/8 inches yet the small opening on timer reduces water flow. No one else mentions this. Is there an alternative?
Asked by: Tooslow
No issue with water flow on my end with this product. If your simply watering a garden or connected to a sprinkler you should not detect any reduced performance.

It can only be set for 120 minutes, correct ?

Can it be set time for next day ?
Asked by: bc108
The timer is like the traditional egg timer. It starts counting down the moment that you set it. No delayed setting options are available on this one. Max time setting is for 120 minutes.

Mechanical Water Timer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 203.

Our personal plantation located in South Carolina has used numerous timers during the last 15 years for the irrigation of its plants and orchard. These are not commercial but are for the pleasure and beauty of this family operation. About three years ago I found the simple Orbit Water Timers and determined they were by far the least expensive and most efficient of any product we have ever used. We currently have about 25 in operation and recently purchased 16 more because I allowed some of mine to freeze up during a recent 23 degree F cold spell. It takes about 10 minutes to activate the irrigation on all 25 timers and I can then walk away knowing all of my flowers, plants and trees are well irrigated. Thanks for this wonderful product.

So far, I really like it. It's easy to use -- like a kitchen timer. I attached mine to the hose bib. Turn the timer to the desired minutes (from 15 to 75), turn the water on and when time has run out, the water stops. You can also set it to manual if needed. I've set it for 10 minutes by turning the timer to just under 15. Having a multi-pattern sprinkler attached to the hose end allows me to cover my large yard while doing other chores. When the timer gets to 0, I reposition the sprinkler and change the sprinkler pattern as necessary & reset the timer. After all areas are done, I turn off the water. My only concern would be what would happen if I forget to turn the water off. Now, if only the hose can put itself away.

This product provides solid performance but tends to break down after 12 - 24 months because of a combination of our hard water and the summer heat. Orbit has a warranty on the item for 7 years but hasn't been very good about responding to my request for a repair/replacement on their warranty! If you want to avoid having your water run indefinitely then this timer works fine! Just plan on replacing it every year or two.

After noticing a lot of water draining into our driveway, we investigated several sources. Turns out that the dial was stuck on 30 minutes and had been going non stop for two weeks. We hadn't used it because it was raining a lot. Our water bill went through the roof. DO NOT BUY!

I purchased my first timer last year and am pleased with it that I purchased another this year. There have been no issues at all with the device. The timer is accurate and the water stops completely with no leakage. As log as your connections are tight, you're going to save water.

I now have two of these one for my garden and one for watering the new grass. The first one is a year old and still works great. The electrical ones stop working after a month so I just get the mechanical ones now.
