Is there a problem if I attach the inlet to a hose instead of a faucet/spigot?

Asked by davo July 4, 2020
5
Answers

Should be fine, but I wouldn't just let it lie on the ground, but that's just me. Perhaps you could attach the inlet hose and outlet hose to a post with the timer unit in between. There isn't a way to mount the timer unit to a post directly.

Can I erase the programming and start fresh?

Asked by TeeGee June 27, 2020

Answers

You can change the programming at any time. Up to 4 times per day, 7 days a week. Any combination and variable run times for each.

Yes, freezing conditions will crack the housing and cause it to leak. All you need to remember is to remove it and Store it where the frost can’t affect it!

Yes, a new name brand alkaline 9V battery in the timer should allow the timer to function for at least 12 months.

A better quality battery

Can it water at intervals during one part of the day (e.g. daytime) and NOT water during the other part (e.g. night)?

Asked by LawnGone March 18, 2018

You can set it up for different schedules. Such as you can have it set up to water Monday thru Sundays at 10am, noon, 2pm, and 4pm (for example. You can pick your own times). You can have it go for up to 4 times throughout the day. But you cannot set it to water every hour on the hour for 20 minutes Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 am and 8pm, for example. You have to pick the specific times, up to 4 diferent times per day, for the days you want.

Timer is easy to set up and use but had costly failure below where it screws into the spigot about two months in. The c-clip remained in place while the body somehow separated from the top. Unfortunately I got home to find water coming out of the drains in the front yard. The timer was attached to water fruit trees on slope which sent water and mud down the slope (for 6 hours based on my cameras) covering decorative stones and soaking the ground to mush. Next water bill was about $60 dollars higher than normal due to this $32 part failing. Luckily I was able to return it within the 90 day return window. I'm not the first based on reviews. Bought an orbit unit to replace.

It has all the features I wanted but the cheap-feeling connector to the hose bibb foreshadowed the failure-to-come. It worked wonderfully for 2.5 days to run two small sprinkers (via a Y) to keep about 20 pieces of sod moist. When I got home tonight I saw water running out our french drain into the street so went into the backyard and the timer assembly was laying on the ground, separated from the threaded collar (still attached to the hose bibb) with water spewing onto the patio and into the drain. I don't know how long it ran like that but my best guess is 25 minutes based on a 5:30pm start time and I got home at 5:55pm. I'm thankful it didn't pop off for the first run at 8am and have the water run for 10 hours. There's just a plastic clip holding the timer to the threaded collar and somehow it popped loose or doesn't have enough bite in the timer's neck allowing it to push free and let the faucet free-run. The faucet valve was only opened maybe a third of the way so it was seeing maybe 25 psi. If I can't trust it to stay attached then I can't trust it at all and it has no value to me. I don't know if wrapping the collar in duct tape will work to keep it together. Great timer other than the cheap design shortcut taken for the hose bibb attachment.

The timer meter is battery opperated and each line requres a seperate meter for each zone watering. It is very easy to install and whole project for single family home front and back yard can be done doing your self in $ 250 material cost for 3 meters, 1/2" tubing 200', 1/4" tubing 100', spray nozzles and connectors. I and my wife enjoyed the project doing ourself. We set the meter for 10 minutes everyday and then change to 10 minutes for three days in a week, Saturday, Monday & Wednesday at 5 AM, 5:30 AM and 3rd zone at 6AM. We completed the project in two days Saturday, Sunday working with 3 hours break with total of 12 hours.

I am growing fodder indoors and need a versatile timer. This has 4 cycles/day, each day on/off, and adjustable "on" time. The "on" time cannot be set for each cycle, it stays the same for all 4 cycles. It has hose-in and hose-out fittings. Needs a 9v battery which is not included. I stumbled around with the instructions to program this digital timer, but have it set. I am using a pressure reducer since some reviews reported failures due to high water pressure. It is mounted vertically, not horizontally. If it was easier to program, rate it a 5.

Bought this to automatically water our raised beds. You can create a schedule to water your garden at a particular time on specific days of the week. I set mine up to water daily at 6am and it worked well.
