Questions & Answers

use on drip system

is output preasure same as input? I plan on running 4 drip lines. Do I need to add a 25psi regulator to each output?
Asked by: littletrees
If you use 4 drip lines at same time the pressure will be less and the area coverage will be less. You can time the 4 drip lines one after the other, this way the input pressure will be same as output pressure and you will greater coverage area.

what batteries does it take and how long do they last?

Asked by: sirmunk
2 AA's. I usually get about 6 months on a set of batteries. However, one of my 2 units was particular picky on the type of batteries; it would only turn on with Energizer, and did not like Duracell. Never knew why, but eventually the electrical unit died and the mechanical unit started leaking (out the top) after 2 years of use. Still feel like i got my money's worth running the unit 9 months out of the year for 2 years, so I am going to buy another unit.

can you water each zone at different times

Asked by: lou525
In my experience, no. Valves don't shut off as they are suppose to.

Zone 3, on the other hand, does not shut off and I had to rig it with a 2 way hose valve in order for the product to not leak any water out on Zone 3. This was the only disappointment and complaint that I have on this device so far. Zone 1, 2, and 4 work properly and the zones turn on and off at the appropriate dates and times and the battery life seems to be pretty good as well. Now, if I were to get/receive another AquaTimer that works properly by having all the valves shut the water off, then I would definitely give this item 5 stars instead of 2 stars.

To rig up a 5 sprinkler watering system for a newly seeded lawn, I connected this 4-port manifold and a Melnor 2-port manifold. This is for a vacation home, so the system needed to work with no onsite management. I've only had it working for about 2 weeks, but so far, so good. To set the times for the sprinkler to turn on, you need to hold down buttons to advance the clock to the time you want. It's a little cumbersome--would be easier if you could just enter the time on a keypad. Other than that, the set-up is easy and understandable. Since I've only had the unit for a few weeks, I can't speak about durability.

First one I bought 2 years ago, one of the valves wouldn't stop thus ran water for hours, called customer service after a few attempts the product was determined to be faulty. I had only used it for about 2 weeks. They didn't have any more in-stock and sent me a Y-Pipe and 2 2-Zone Melnor times (which worked out better). Decided to give this one another try. After 2 weeks one of the valves again did not shut off and it ran for hours. I was able to reset the valve this time. That being said, I have no confidence in this product. I only use the timer when I'm home to save me trips. I wouldn't trust if it no one wasn't one was home as it could literally just run for hours on end.

I successfully connected the Melnor system to my existing 3-zone PVC pipes after removing an Orbit 4-zone system that was leaking. Programming instructions were simple enough but I had to re-do it several times because as soon as you move on to the next zone the inputted info would change on you, resulting in having to start over. Eventually got all 3 zones programmed and it worked like a charm after using Melnor's Quick Connect Kit to connect up to the PVC pipes. I felt so proud. Thanks, Melnor.

Setup instructions were well written & easy to follow. The valves work well & do shut off completely every time. I've only had it for 6 weeks and have only been using one outlet manually so far which was stuck open at first and had to be cycled several times before it would shut off, but that just proved it works. The other 3 outlets don't leak or even drip with full pressure from the house faucet. One word of caution: it is plastic & there is no way to attach a bracket to provide strain relief, so if you pull too hard on the hose you could break it quite easily. With a series of hoses & sprinkler heads you could easily create an above ground automatic sprinkler system using this timer as the controller. For this reason I may end up buying a second one for the front yard hose.

I had one valve initiall stuck open, but that was easy to fix by opening and closing it using the control panel in manual mode (per instructions). I have one complaint: We use it in a greenhouse with drip irrigation and the greenhouse gets very hot. I'd like to be able to set it to run in the morning and a couple of times in the afternoon. I don't need it to run at night. This unit allows you to tell it how frequently to water, but if you tell it to water every 4 hours, it does so every 4 hours both day and night. If you tell it to water every 12 hours and start at 9:00 AM for example, the second watering is at 9:00 PM. Water 3 times starting at 6:00 AM, the next watering is at 2:00 PM, and the last is at 10:00 PM. Who wants plants soaked at 10:00 PM so they can get moldy? Other than that, if you only water once a day it works great.

It is very flexible in terms of programming ability and offers the option of immediate watering without needing to use the "keypad". The rain delay is a great feature. Just arrow down to it, select the number of days of delay and you're done. Although I haven't used it, there is the ability to attach an external rain sensor to the unit. This is a definite plus.

The 4 zone requires the extra step of selecting the zone before making changes, which if overlooked can result in making changes to a zone other than the intended, but that is a short learning curve.Verifying that each zone is set as intended after making any change is easy and provides an opportunity to spot any error.
