A: Not at all. It connects directly to the water spigot and the hose. This is a great timer. It takes a while for the battery run out as well.
A: It has hose fittings on both ends. Just screw onto spigot and attach hose.
A: I usually use a medium-sized flat head screwdriver with its flat part about 1/4" wide, and leverage one of the battery compartment plastic tabs in a slow, upward motion. Hope this helps!
A: No, they are not included.
A: Country of origin: Taiwan. It's only on the outside of the plain brown box they ship in.
A: I've looked and looked, on the meter and in the instructions, does not say! Soory no help!! However, this from melnor website: "Melnor was started in 1946 by Norman, Louie, and Sam Seiden. Melnor got its start in the lawn and garden industry because of Norman. As a mechanical engineer, Norman saw the sprinklers of his time only watered the middle of the lawn. The corners of the yard would still get dry. Wanting to change this, Norman invented an oscillating sprinkler to saturate the corners and protect the center from getting muddy. " And, their Customer Service is located in Winchester, Virginia. In addition, there's a SEVEN YEAR WARRANTY on my meter! Sounds as American as you can get! Hope this helps!
