Rated 4 out of 5Â by oldretiredguy GOOD TIMER
Bought this timer as a first time using a timer, it was easy to install and program UNTIL you got to the second third and forth station...the instruction are very vague on this and not at all clear as the other modes are to time. The big "secret" that they don't tell you is you only program ONE start time for all station along with the run time of EACH station. otherwise it will run through the sequence and then start again. The instruction are VERY vague, non existant for this feature and the online reference to instruction is VERY hard to find. I found an instruction Video on YOU TUBE of someone setting this timer up and he did a MUCH better job of explaining. The ORBIT instruction need to be update so the average type bear can understand not just the electronic engineer that designed it, they are not instructors.

This is my second unit. The first was so easy I decided to get another one for the back yard. Very easy to read and setting it is fast and easy.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Marcellino No battery backup - reprogam every time power blinks
This controller has no battery. Each time the AC power flickers it lose the program.
Worst that that. The state is unpredictable and it can run each day running up a water bill.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bstoneman Easy to install and works perfectly!
I replaced an outdoor timer with this Orbit 4 Station timer and couldn't be happier with the purchase. The unit is well made and installation was a snap. The unit looks great and has performed flawlessly. Very easy to program.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by xd40 Outstanding timer for the price
I purchased another brand from a different dealer and after taking 2 timers back, I decided to look on line. Found this under best sprinkler timers. Set-up was easy, mounting just as easy and quality of the product compared to the other I had tried was unbelievable. The difference in price was $2.50 more for the Orbit. If you have a 4 station system, buy it!
