That is kind of a pain, I had to take needle nose pliers and pull pretty hard and then the battery pack pops out. It felt like I might break it but I didn't have any problems, it's just in there snug. Pretty sad that the directions don't explain that.

Yes, if your state or local plumbing code requires one. California requires one, and I'm using this timer for drip irrigation, so I installed the Rain Bird 3/4 in. FHT Backflow Preventer with 150 Mesh Filter (SKU 883952) on my backyard hose bib.

If you are trying to prevent backflow into your house, you will be fine. Same goes for the pressure regulator.

I love this as it saves me time in wattering, but this is the second tome this has happened it was replaced last year. If you bump it in any direction it will break at the faucet. Ive included a picture where it breaks. The older version of thos product worked so much better.

Previous model worked ok, but poorly made
I have owned this for several years, and it worked pretty well, until today. All the valves are stuck open. I opened it for the first time ever, and you can see from the photo how rinky dink the internal wiring is. I'm surprised this thing hasn't shorted out the batteries, or that the valves ever opened independently from each other. There are thin bare wires everywhere. I'll be looking for another brand.

Good overall product and easy to setup and operate. All I do no is setup my hoses the night before I have it programmed to water the lawn and by the time I wake up is all done.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I'm writing this with a little trepidation, because while this product is working great so far, I'm concerned that problems may occur in the future. The reason is simple: I have the 2-zone version of this product, and after a few weeks, I noticed that the second zone wasn't turning on at its scheduled time. The device would show that the schedule was activated, but the water wouldn't flow. And I've seen some online reviews of the 4-zone version having the same problem. Luckily, so far, the 4-zone water timer is working great for me. I have three of the zones hooked up to water every day at different times, and I have the fourth zone dedicated to a manual spray nozzle. The only issue I have with this product is that when you put it on rain delay, it actually prevents manual operations as well. That's sort of silly, as you might need to wash a car or spray off the deck even if you don't want the garden/lawn watered, so I think Melnor should probably update the product eventually to allow manual watering during a rain delay. Overall, assuming this continues to work as designed, it really is a tremendous value. If you have a need for this many watering zones (which I actually do), it's well worth the price, which is just slightly higher than the 2-zone model.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This Melnor 4 Zone Digital Timer is very easy to set up and use. After initially purchasing a single zone controller to water my flower beds I ordered this 4 zone timer to water my tree rows while out of town. It is extremely versatile due to the ability to screw directly onto a faucet and hook up as many as 4 hoses to it. The instructions are very thorough, and step clearly through each configuration. It takes two AA batteries, which are not included. It can be set up to run each of the four zones from daily to once every 7 days, and up to 4 times per day per zone. It also has a manual bypass for each zone that can be selected as desired. I had it set up and operating in just a few minutes with no glitches. My single zone timer has been reliable and I expect no less from this one. This is a great design, and I would definitely recommend it.

Bought this 2 weeks ago. Set it up, a little confusing, and left the next morning for 4 days. Hoped I didn’t return to burnt new grass and I didn’t. Works great so far. Mostly plastic and where my faucet is direct sunlight from noon on so hopefully it holds up.
