where does the battery go

sorry lost my instructions and need to replace battery, where and how .
Asked by: Dale
The batteries go in the bottom of the unit. You have to remove the cover with a phillips screwdriver. It takes two AA batteries.

Does this timer have a specific direction of flow? Does it have to be installed with the female connector nearest the faucet/water source?

In order to orient the timer upright on our pipe, it had to be installed with the male connector toward the water source. The water doesn't fully shut off after the watering time and continues to dribble. Do you think it is an internal failure or does it have anything to do with the direction of water flow through the timer?
Asked by: Waterboy
This timer uses a ball valve to control flow, which should not rely on the direction of flow. So I'd expect it to work either way.

I want it to run at least 6hours and then repeat for the next day. Will this work?

I want it to turn the water on and irrigate for at least 6 hours, each day.
Asked by: calskid
It won't run for that long at one time.

Blue Stripe Drip Battery-Operated Hose-End Timer is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Set timer in house and then install it I like this timer because it serves 2 basic purposes. You can use it as a timer for a garden hose or for a drip system. I needed to design a drip line system but did not finish the design or buy all the parts. Memorial Day weekend is here and I will be away. We needed plants watered. I inserted 2 AA batteries and then waited for the start time. The next day at 5 AM, while in the house, set the frequency to 24 hours and the duration for 20 minutes. Now it was all set to go as soon as I installed it. I bought a brass manifold with a 4 hose hookup. Then attached the manifold to my hose bib. I used some Teflon tape on the male threads and then attached the garden hose. Since I had already tested the spray pattern on the watering end of the garden hose and determined where to locate the spray head, I was all set to use it. I took a picture and sent it to a neighbor and my daughter to solve their watering problem. Lou81

Rated 5 out of 5 by from toro saved kids garden club The Mohave County Master Gardeners are sponsoring and teaching an after school garden club at Cerbat elementary school in Kingman, Az. We needed to find a way to automatically water the students plants, they had planted in buckets, because the planting area was off limits during regular school hours. There is no water source we could connect to on a permanent basis. We tried several types of timers connected to a 55 gallon water drum. None would work. We thought we would have to cancel and disappoint all 25, 4th and 5th graders. Then we tried the Toro, Battery Operated Hose-End Timer (Blue Strip Drip, model 53746). It works like a charm. From the moment we attached it, the plants received water from the drip system. It has been in service for 4 weeks with no problems whatsoever. It was scheduled to be delivered in 10 days however we received the unit in 4 days. We are extremely pleased with the operation of this unit and the service we received from Home Depot. Thank you Toro for the great product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Set it and forget it !! This is actually a very good unit. Batteries last all summer long. Keeps my grass looking green and healthy with minimal effort. The only problem is this: The plastic part that screws on to your faucet becomes brittle over time. Every year, I take the unit off for winter and each year the black plastic breaks off. I will be purchasing my 3rd unit in 3 years. If they made that piece out of a stronger material this unit would be a perfect 5 stars. Due to it breaking every year, this unit, in my opinion only rates 3 stars.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lasts 2 seasons This is a simple, very easy to use product. Unfortunately, it only lasts 2 seasons. I have had one fail where the plastic material inside the faucet connector became brittle and broke. The second unit developed pinhole leaks at the faucet connector. I've used Orbit, Melnor, Gilmor and Toro hose timers. Toro's durability is the worst of the group. Orbit units have a similiar problem to Toro, but their customer service is outstanding. They have replaced cracked units out of warrant for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple & Easy to set Pro: Easy programming, one dial sets the frequency for watering and the other dial sets the duration. Water inlet is standard 3/4 garden hose connection as well as the outlet. I run well water through it with no problems. Con: The only drawback I could find is with the duration timer. It has settings for 1, 3, 10 etc min. They skipped the 5 min setting which I could have used, no biggie but would have been nice. I'll probably buy another one of these, we like this unit better than the LED display units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding This timer is so easy to program, and with the preset settings you have as much detailed watering as you need. Another thing I'm thankful for is ease of access to the battery compartment. Some of the timers I have I have you have to remove three of four screws to put in new batteries, this one has one out and one in, and you are in business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works as expected and it's not too loud when it operates. I'm using it to water some tropical ... It works as expected and it's not too loud when it operates. I'm using it to water some tropical fruit seeds I'm trying to germinate in my kitchen sink. 1 minute of water every 2 hours. (Of course I had to use some adapters to go from kitchen plumbing to hose threads.) The knobs select between discrete stops rather than adjust continuously, which is good because I know precisely which frequency or duration I'm selecting and because it's harder to accidentally nudge the knobs from their setting. Reasons to prefer this unit over the various "digital" hose timers: - this can water every 1 hours or every 2 hours, whereas the digital timers can only water as frequently as every 6 hours - this one's settings are immediately visible and accessible as knobs rather than being hidden in "setting" modes - this uses a ball valve rather than a solenoid valve, so it can switch low-pressure flow (as from a bucket or barrel)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a reliable Timer I purchased 3 of these from Home Depot in March 2014 and had to return all of them over a 5 week period due to the timer failing to open. What happens is when it is supposed to open you just hear a clacking sound and it just does not open or just as bad it opens and then will not close while still making the same sound. We had a flood in the greenhouse with one and we had a week later another that failed to open but at least we caught it before everything dried up. The 3 rd one out of the package failed the first time it was to open. All of these had new out of the package batteries so spare yourself the grief and get something else.
