Can this timer be installed with a permanent PVC watering system?

I am looking for a simple way to automate a PVC misting system to cool my animals. Can this timer be installed in a permanent PVC system, or must it be connected to a hose bibb only?
Asked by: pmensoni
Yes....go to Home Depot and talk to plumbing dept staff about getting proper adapters....mine connects to several adapters and then goes into my 3/4" PVC sprinkler pipes.

How does the rain delay work? Does it autmatically detect rain?

Asked by: DiHydrogenMonoxide
No. If you know irbid going to rain or it has rained sufficiently so that you want to skip an automatic cycle or two, you select how many hours you want to delay the automatic cycle from starting again. For example if you know it is going to rain the next two day, you set the rain delay to 48 hours and automatic cycle will not start until 48 hours has elapsed.

Does it have a battery indicator? How do we know that battery is dead?

Asked by: Nish
A low battery icon will appear in the display when the batteries are low. They suggest replacing the batteries each season.

1-Port Single Dial Timer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 559.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Warranty, Programming Could Easily Be Better I've only had it for a few days, but so far, so good. Online specs states that the warranty is 5 years, but the packing material says 6 years, which is excellent. As another reviewer said, save your receipt (and the package info card; it states "6 year warranty", but the instruction manual does not.) My only complaint is that the programming could be better, at little to no additional cost. I'm using this unit for my drip irrigation system. For deep-watering of larger trees and shrubs, that don't require watering very often, it would be helpful if the "How Long" setting extended to 8 or even 12 hours, instead of being limited to 4 hours. Same with the "How Often" setting, 30 or even 45 days, instead of being limited to 7 days. I have a DIG brand timer that will do that, although admittedly it is twice the price. These days, a CPU change isn't that expensive. It is a minor complaint, though. I can make do with this unit, especially considering the price and warranty.

One has been working flawlessly for several months now, the other, well . . . . . . not so flawlessly. I had one of the timers (the one that doesn't work) going through batteries about every second or third day. The culprit turned out to be the top retaining screw on the back cover. I found it had been stripped out and just stuck in the hole. Being that there was no gasketing on the rear cover, and the screw unable to hold the cover in tightly, it allowed water to enter the unit and it entered the electronics compartment through the battery carrier. Electronic components were corroded and part of the "protective" coating had been lifted off the printed circuit board. Water also damaged the LCD display to where it is unreadable at times. To say that I am displeased with this particular piece would be a gross understatement. Being that it is one of the "less expensive" offerings, I guess the old adage does hold true - you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a review after using the Orbit 1-port single dial timer for less than one day, so I don't... This is a review after using the Orbit 1-port single dial timer for less than one day, so I don't have long-term experience with it yet. LIKES: - $32 ; inexpensive - Very simple. - Batteries are very easy to install/replace (takes two AA's)...this is important since reviews for other products say that sometimes the batteries can be hard to replace....not with this one. - Very easy to program. I spent one or two minutes reading the instructions, and after installing the batteries, it took me about two minutes to program it. The longest delay was me trying to determine how often I wanted it to run. - Note: It's for one zone only, obviously. Note: Run frequency/intervals: It can water up to four times per day, but there's a catch. It only works with "interval timing" meaning every X number of hours or days. In other words, you can't program it to water at four unique and specific times such as, say, 9am, 10a, 4pm, and 11pm....however, you can set the interval time to the lowest setting of "every six hours", which is equivalent to four times each day. In regards to start time, you can enter only *one* start time, such as 6am. With a start time of 6am and a 6-hour interval time, it would water at 6am, 12pm, 6pm, and 12am. Lowest interval times are 6 hours and 12 hours and 24 hours (ie, 4 times/day, twice a day, once a day)...you *cannot* do three times a day. You can also do every 2 days, 3 days, etc. - Note: In regards to "run time" (for example, 5 minutes), it will run for that run time during EACH interval...ie, you can't have it run for 5 minutes at 6am and 10 minutes at 12p. If you need that, you'll need a more complex and expensive product. - Note: Manual running. Can you manually activate the sprinkler zone for X number of minutes? Yes. Quite simple...turn to AUTO, press manual button, select the number of minutes, and then wait about 5 or 6 seconds for it to kick in and start counting down. After you install the batteries, you can test the unit before installing it. when the start time is reached, you can hear a loud click in the unit indicating that the water-passthru valve is open, and then it clicks again when it closes at the end of the cycle. DISLIKES: - It gets very hot in direct sunlight....no fault of the product....that's what plastic does. Instead of artbitrarily saying that it "gets very hot", here is some accurate details about that. I'm in Phoenix, AZ at the end of April. It was 92F when I tested this at 2pm. I used an infrared thermometer to check the surface temperature of the Orbit timer after it had been installed and sitting in direct sun for 30 minutes...the surface temperature was 150F on the top of the unit. Ouch! The daily temperature usually hits 120F in Phoenix in the summer, so that will likely ruin the entire timer or at least the LCD screen. This is likely one of the reasons people blame Orbit for a bad timer...it overheats in direct sunlight. With that said, *NO* electric timer (or any electronics device at all) should be left in direct sunlight. Standard/larger timers are usually put in plastic water/sun-proof boxes, and they can still overheat. - Heat solution: I wasn't too concerned about aesthetics, so I found a 12"*12"*12" cardboard box, cut a few slots in it to fit around my hose and pipes, covered it in clear packing tape to make it water resistant, and then spray painted it with white gloss paint. The box was a complete cube with no bottom... I placed the box over the timer, pipe, and hose...I specifically created the box so that the cardboard top receiving direct sunlight would not be directly on top of the timer...there is probably 5" of air gap above and around the timer to the cardboard that protects it. - After waiting about 20 minutes, I went back out, removed the box, and checked the termperature of the top of the timer...it was now 112F...almost 40F degrees cooler. Because the timer is so close to the 1/2" copper pipe that feeds it, the water in the copper pipe (that is also being covered by the box) is somewhat acting like a miniature air conditioner inside of the box which helps keep the timer cool...not a lot, but I'm sure it helps since the copper pipe is slightly cool to the touch. Another benefit to the shade box is that it will keep the AA batteries cooler as well which will make them last longer. The white box is not horribly ugly, but not amazing...yet, it is functional and somewhat out of the way. - Other dislike: I have read several people say that the timer is oddly not very water resistant and can become ruined if it's in rain too long. Even though the water-resistant box will keep water off of the timer, I first wrapped the timer in a 1-gallon plastic ziplock bag to help keep it dry, and I placed the box over that. I'd bet that in some cases, the sun bakes/warps the timer after several weeks/months, which leads to a leak, which could lead to water damage...just a hunch. - Physical installation notes: I had a friend remove the hosebib on my house, replace it with a custom-made copper pipe "Y" splitter that we made with 1/2" copper pipe. The left side goes to the Orbit timer, but there is a manual ball-valve shut-off *before* the timer (HUGELY recommended, and very convenient to have the shut-off available during testing and troubleshooting), the right side of the "Y" goes to another hosebib for my regular garden hose. Can you use a standard $10 hosebib splitter instead of the custom copper pipe method? Yes, but I chose not to since cheaper splitters often leak once they've been under pressure for awhile, and I had the luxury of having someone help me do it the preferred way. Also, since I'm watering only a 100SF flowerbed, I connected a $10 pressure-reducer on the outgoing part of the orbit timer to keep the pressure down a bit. -Spike

At the bottom of the timer, where to water exits, there are two little holes along the line where the timer's two sections connect as one (timer). After awhile, water starts to leak from these two holes, and leak into the battery compartment, soiling the battery and connectors. When it is working, it meets my expectations. I dislike that it only lasts 3-6 months before leaking water, corroding the system to malfunction. Its inconvenient to keep contacting Orbit to replace my timers. I've bought four in the last 2-3 years and all have leaked within six (6) months. Orbit was nice enough to replace one. Brad/Waianae, HI
