Where is a copy of the operation instruction> My unit failed to pass water. I may have turned the control knob to the right inctead of the left. .T

My unit would not pass water. I may have turned the control knob to the right and got no water. Then I turned the knob to the left (counterclockwist) to zero and then past zero to 15 sill no water. I go distracted and forgot to turn the faucet valve off as there was no water coming out of my hose. Hours (?) later when I came home water was flowing full blast (length of time unknown but for at least a couple of hours or more. When I tried to operate the control knob the unit seemed to be working just fine fine. What happened and why did tjhis just started working all by itself? I bought a new unit which II returned because my unit was now working just fine. What happened to make this unit start working all by itself?
Asked by: Force
YOU MAY HAVE TURNED IT TO THE RIGHT WHICH MEANS ALWAYS ON NO TIMING AND IF YOU TURN TO THE LEFT YOU CAN SELECT UP TO 120 MINUTES. PERHAPS YOU DIDN'T HAVE THE MAIN WATER VALVE ON WHEN YOU FIRST HOOKED IT UP OR DIDN'T HAVE TIMER IN CORRECT LOCATION ON THE DIAL. DADDY KALINKA

Do these open up and allow a lot of pressure through them? And is it able to turn on and off by its self every day

I'm running and 8 head sprinkler system
Asked by: Drt
The Mechanical Water Timer does not turn on by itself every day it needs to be set manually to the time you want to water (15 to 120 minutes). Any hose end item or anything you put on the spigot is going to reduce your water pressure.

Customer Reviews

Mechanical Water Timer is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother with this useless product. Needed a simple timer for our soaker hoses, just something we can put on, leave the house, and have them turn off by themselves. Bought one of these last year, it worked for about half the summer, then wouldn't shut off the water. Set up the soakers this spring, bought another one, and this one worked for all of two days before giving up the ghost. Once again, you turn it on, and the darn thing won't shut off. We'd have been better off spending twice the price to get one unit that worked. Just a real disappointment, from a supposedly reputable company.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vigaro mechanical timer This item failed during the first use. I set it for 2 hours and it ran all night long. The timer stuck at 15 minutes. I tried it again for another 2 hour period in the morning and it did the same thing. I will return this unit as defective.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought two, neither work I had one of these timers last year, with a slightly different appearance. It worked all summer, then sat in a box all winter long. When I went to hook it up again in summer, it didn't work. Well, that's not great, but at least it lasted one summer, right? So I bought two replacements. And you know what? They were both defective and never worked once. I thought I'd tested them when I manually turned the knob to make sure the water shuts off, but the timer mechanism just isn't strong enough to turn the knob that last little bit by itself. I set the timers up and we left to run errands and returned to find the water had been on for four hours. I suspect the manufacturer found a cheaper supplier for the timer clockwork to turn the knob, but they never actually checked to see if the revised product met minimum quality standards. Zero quality control = I don't buy your products any more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keeps Getting Stuck I have purchased two of these now and the result has been exactly the same... I set the time for 30 minutes and it will wind down close to 0 and then stay on perpetually without ever turning off. I have to manually give it a twist for it to go into the off mode. I bought the second one thinking that my first one was old and worn. Second one starting down the exact same thing right from the first time it was turned on. Time to look for something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great!!! This little device worked great for my garden. Just connect it to the faucet and turn it like an egg timer and forget about it. * It will not turn off the faucet just turns of the flow of water to what you have connected to the timer...just an FYI!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't BUY! Well it work the first two weeks very well. Then I trusted this timer and the water ran all night long! I would set the timer and the timer ran down to 15 minutes then stop, but not the water. I cannot trust this timer.
Date published: 2010-06-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked for less than a week It worked for a few days but when fully operational it reduces the water flow by about 1/2 to 1/3 over not using a timer. This means I have to keep moving the sprinkler to cover the whole (very small) yard. Unfortunately as of today it's reduced to about 1/4 flow... I tried various things to clear it on the assumption that something got into it, but no luck. Will be returning it for credit/refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water Timer This is an excellent water timing device. The operation is straight forward, very user friendly and simple. Simply connect to your faucet, turn the dial to the desired watering time, and walk away; after the set time has expired it turns off the water flow. It DOES NOT turn off the faucet. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a SIMPLE water timing device.
