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.

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.

I have two doing water jobs for me and they are working great. The only negative would be since they are used outdoors in the sun which is hard on LCD displays it would be nice if it had a cover for the display. I made one for my timers so hopeful the displays will not go black.

By the time I had to disconnect all my hoses due to outside temperature, this one was working much better than the other two hose timer that Home Depot offers- I can't remember the brand otherwise I would mention it... It's just as easy to program. I am happy with it. We'll see again next summer.

It seems that I have to go to the unit and enter the amount of time I want to water on manual. However… I wanted to keep one of the hoses on manual at all times for the backyard, without having to go to the side of house.

Timer was easy to set and simple to switch to manual or off for rain without affecting the schedule and operates the two zones perfectly. Only time will tell how long the batteries really last, but so far very happy with the timer.
