Questions & Answers

The specification for this timer does not say it can independently control both outlets.

So, can it ?
Asked by: LasCrucesGuy
If you're running sprinklers make sure each zone has a different start time so both outlets aren't flowing at the same time, otherwise you'll get 50% flow to each one. The instructions don't really explain this.

Can I put this in direct sunlight?

The location where I'm planning to attach this is in direct sunlight for most of the day. Will this be OK for the Aquatimer?
Asked by: Tommy
I would recommend AGAINST leaving the controller in direct sunlight. I had a similar unit on the west side of my house that died from over heating in less than a year. My new unit is located in the same place, BUT I made a reflective flap of aluminum foil that I mounted as a sun shield and have had no problem with this unit. These units are basically black plastic and can get very hot in direct sunlight and really cook the circuit boards and components.

How do I stop the system from leaking from all parts of the system

I set up the system this year and when I turn on the water it is leaking from every crack.
Asked by: kb404
I left mine outside all winter (but water lines were disconnected). When I hooked up the water line it was leaking water everywhere. It must have frozen and split some internal parts. I had to buy another unit. I'll bring this unit indoors next winter.

Clear instructions and very easy to set calibrations. Also; simple to change and modify " off " & " on " time durations. Connected to my " soaker hose " to operate nightly on "#1 zone" for newly planted shrubs around my lanai --- for 180 minutes --- and the plants are blooming!! I will be connecting "#2 zone" to another " soaker hose " for additional shrubs; yet to be planted. I will set the "#2 zone" to go on for 120 minutes --- fewer shrubs than "#1 zone. The Melnor timer is considerably less expensive than other brands I looked at; and has all the features you need for full control of time; and amount of water used. I've operated the timer every day, over a month and it works perfectly! I would absolutely recommend this timer !!

Easy to program and works just fine, however, I needed it for seeding grass and I would have liked a "water every 2 hours" function available to keep everything damp. It only allows "water every 4 hours" as your most frequent choice. In the fall that's probably enough, but in early summer it isn't. I had to use the manual water setting every day that it was hot and breezy in between watering cycles to keep it damp enough. It was a bit like babysitting for 10 days until I saw good growth and backed off the watering a bit. I'd recommend it but it was not ideal for my purposes.

Programming was relatively easy which was good because I thought the instructions were lacking in detail. Functionally, it works very well - programs run through their cycles just as I hoped they would. The only problem I have found seems to be the result of my changing one of the two programs after both were set up. Changing program no. 2 results in having it start a new frequency schedule. I had wanted to have both programs run on the same day. Seems the only way to synchronize is to clear them and re do both programs - not difficult but seems there should be a better way.

It is super easy to program and after almost two years the batteries finally started to die (I had to replace the batteries in my last timer about every 3 months and it was way more complicated to program). When I decided to split my irrigation into two zones I was going to buy another like the first one but then I saw that they have this one with two zones and I believe they also make a 4 zone version. Best timer I've ever used!

My only warning is that the water flow through this timer is less than your house spigot. This means that less water will flow through it. The result is a sprinkler that does not shoot as far or a hose that does not distribute as much gallons per minute as the hose would normally do if this was not connected. Overall a good product but you have to learn to work with it.

Before this we spent alot of time watering, moving sprinklers and our grass still looked dull, now we hooked up 2 hoses and sprinklers, set it and it does its thing, grass looks great as well. We have always had good experiences with Melnor sprinklers so we decided to buy the Melnor timer and a couple of Melnor pulsating sprinklers...Thanks Melnor for making our lives alot easier.

But we were deciding between two brands of timers and had some problems with the programming of this unit I called their customer service and the person I spoke with was not interested in assisting me. He referred me to the internet, when I told him I did not have access he still had the, I can't be bothered, attitude. So we decided to do with the other brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great for 3 years Too good to last. Retrieved from winter storage, opened faucet and water circuit 2 blows straight through. I only use curcuit 1 so capped circuit 2 water outlet and water leaked from other openings in the device. Off to purchase another. For $30, and 3 years of saving my hanging baskets, I almost got my money's worth
