I have a pump. My old timer has a pump relay connection control. Does this timer?

Asked by: mrwonderful
There is not a pump start relay with this timer. It was designed for traditional residential developments with pressure to the valves.

Does it need a rain box? And is it hard wired or come with a plug?

Two questions: Does this come with a plug, or is it hard wired? Also, does this require a timer box?
Asked by: Mrwonderful669
The box comes with everything you need. There is a power adapter that plugs into the base of the unit. The timer should be mounted inside or inside of a waterproof box. The unit itself is not waterproof.

This was a replacement for the exact same unit, which gave out after 5 years due to an electrical surge. Easy to install and program, has just enough features without being overly complicated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A weather smart timer that actually works I do not often rate products with five stars, however this product is a good one. I will not get into the specs as you can obtain that elsewhere, but I will comment on two specific topics, ease of use and my observations on the weathersmart programming. Let's begin with ease of use. The system installs like any other irrigation timer, other than the need to install the wireless weather station box in a nearby outside location. Mine is secured to my fence just outside of my garage door, in open view of the sky. On a rare occasion the timer loses contact with the wireless weather station, but it notifies you by beeping and I simply take the battery door off the weather station momentarily, then reconnect it so it can re-pair with the timer. This occurs once every couple of months and might be related to my thick stucco home. This is the first irrigation timer I have owned that is reasonably intuitive to use. I suspect many will need to glance through the owner’s manual, but you will probably never need the manual again after that. Once you have set up the watering times for each zone, I really appreciate having an LCD screen where I can quickly determine watering start and stop times, run-time length, days of watering, etc., on the same screen. I appreciate the ability to water my lawn everyday while my native plants drip irrigate for a full hour once per week. Most timers do not offer the ability to water different zones on completely different schedules. The weathersmart feature works well. Some cheaper brands simply have a rain detector--whether it rains a fraction of an inch or 4 inches, they shut down for a predetermined amount of time. This one has a tipping bucket to more accurately measure rainfall and will vary the amount of time it shuts down from mere hours to many days. It works well. Right now mine is shut down for 86 hours because we received a decent rain yesterday. Don't be concerned when your system still waters after a light drizzle, it takes…say, tenths of an inch of rain to delay watering. The system also varies watering throughout the seasons. Program it for the hottest part of the summer and as you move toward fall and winter, it automatically waters less. This works, and I like knowing that while I am on vacation it will adjust watering based on actual weather. Now I don't have to feel like the village idiot with my sprinker system running during a rainstorm while I am on vacation. There is not much to complain about. Programming any sprinkler timer is a chore, but this one makes it as easy as it's going to get considering all of the watering options it makes available. The only request I have is for Rain Drip to provide more on-screen feedback on how much it has reduced watering during the non-summer months. Great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use, cost effective, worth the money, but you get what you pay for As you read this review, keep in mind this unit was only $36 when I bought it. Though I may be listing several cons below, it's not meant to bash the unit, it's there to let you know what to expect and decide whether the cons are a good trade off for the price. First, the build quality is just ok, it is very obvious it is for indoor use only. And though the manual says you can mount it outside if you put it in a weatherproof housing, I wouldn't chance it. If mounted in a garage though, I can see it physically lasting many years (electrically is another question, more on that below). It is a very light unit, and the spring loaded connectors for the solenoid wires are small, a little hard to press and pretty flimsy. Luckily, you shouldn't be inserting and removing wires much. Installation though, was very easy. The base screws into the wall (with included anchors and screws) and it has 2 sets of connectors on it: one set for the main unit to slide in and connect, and another set for the aforementioned spring clips plus the AC transformer input plug. The main unit slides in pretty easily, but again, it is very light and does not feel extremely durable. I would be worried if I accidentally dropped it. The worst part, in my case, was that the main unit didn't seem to fit into the base connector very well. It wasn't obvious at first because it clicked in pretty easily, but when I started getting a bunch of random "valve wiring" error messages on the screen when trying to turn on individual solenoids, I finally figured out I had to press the main unit harder down it into the base to make the errors go away. This problem took me 4 days to debug and is another sign of not so great construction/design. It is very easy to use though, I didn't have to consult the manual much to program it. The only thing I really needed to read up on was how to pair the wireless rain/temperature sensor. After reading a little, that was very simple to setup as well. Speaking of the rain/temperature sensor, it too is very flimsy. But unlike the main unit, it needs to sit outside and tolerate extreme weather conditions. I would suspect it will last at best 3-5 years before the plastic starts becoming brittle. Functionally, it should suit most people's needs very well. The programming is very flexible, there is a manual mode, and it has a skip hours/days feature to temporarily turn off the programming as well. I'm not exactly sure of the intricate details of how the smart sensor affects the schedule, but it will skip the schedule completely or adjust the watering times (based on your programmed times) depending on what rain/temperature it reads. The one small gripe I have with the features is the manual mode. In manual mode, you can only choose to start one or all zones, you cannot pick a subset of zones, like 1, 3, 5 to start manually. Not a big deal, but that was the only feature I'd likely use which I found was missing. I saw this for $36 with a $75 utility company rebate, so I thought, what can I lose? Well, I lost about 4 days (couple hours a day) worth of time debugging as mentioned earlier, but other than that, this is a very good basic unit with the added wireless smart sensor feature. We'll just see how long it lasts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Raindrop smart pro sprinkler Pros: easy to use, simple to operate and powerful program capabilities. Wi-fi remote weather stations which uses a time tested method of measuring rain fall. (The tilting bucket method) Unit never loses your program schedule even with the batteries removed. Has 10 year average weather for every zip code in the USA which it factors in. Plus many more great things. Cons: only capable of 6 stations. No outdoor installation box easy option. (I build them myself)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work, Non-existent Customer Support Do not bother purchasing this. This seemed like a great value for the features it offered, but after installing it, we are constantly getting errors. I have tried resetting the device multiple times, to no avail. I have the device set to water on Wed. and Saturday per my city code. This device still operates on Thursdays as well, even though I have it set to run zero zones on Thursday. (that is when the device works. Most of the time we get errors stating to check the wiring on certain stations. When we check the wires, the error clears, and we are able to run the system one time before more errors appear. Still the Thursday run time will not go away! I have called customer support twice, each time I get a message saying we are busy assisting other customers, please leave a message (but the mailbox is full, so I can't). I also contacted them several days ago via their website customer service link. I received an automated message saying someone would respond shortly. That was several days ago. No response.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Second bad timer I first bought this product about one year ago. That unit failed within two weeks (screen continually flashing). Home Depot allowed me to exchange it for an identical replacement. That unit failed this week. This time the timer was repeatedly turning on/off one of the sprinkler valves very quickly. The timer opened the solenoid and the water would just begin to flow when the timer suddenly turned off the solenoid again. I have a 25 psi flow restrictor at each valve but the pressure created by this pattern was still strong enough to blow one of the drip system emitters off sixty feet away from the valve. I unplugged the timer for 10 minutes and when I plugged it back it still wasn't working. The next day it seemed to be fine but I no longer trust it at this point. I really hate to write this review because the unit was easy to install and reasonably easy to use. The watering times adjusted as expected and the batteries in the remote wireless temperature/rain gauge were still fine after one year. The price was 'right' too (I had to spend $150 to replace it with the equivalent model from Rain Bird).
