Q:I need to run one set of misters for 7 hours, but it appears that the maximum duration is 4 hours. Would it work for 7 hours if I set up two values to the same water source and run them consecutively?
by|May 16, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  This timer can have two sets of programs scheduled, so this can be achieved by setting Program B to run for three hours after Program A has finished running for four hours. Our Orbit support team is happy to help with the programming of our Orbit watering timers. We can be reached by phone at (800) 488-6156 or online at support.orbitonline.com.

          This is a great product and it works very well, just don't let it get wet! I've had it for almost a year and it worked perfectly until we got a lot of rain and the inside of my sprinkler box got flooded. Even though it appears to have a water tight seal, it does not. Water was able to get inside the main board and it wouldn't work at all. I had to turn the main water line off or it would run constantly.

            So, I have been looking for a product like this forever! Dont be fooled how it is sold. It is a modular kit! A battery operated kit that can be used with up to 4 other orbit valves of any type. I have 2 valves and I need to run them on battery. They are standard sprinkler 3/4 valves. I used the DIG solar and battery valves but you need to buy 2 at $80 a pop. They both failed after about a year and a half. I picked up this product and it is a 1 inch valve. I almost put it back on the shelf. Then I decided to open it and see if I could cannibalize it for parts. Sure enough its a normal orbit valve with a dc solenoid and the timer just pops on. This timer should be sold separately so people know it can be used with other products! I didnt need the valve but I was able to reuse the dc seloniod and bough another one for $10 for my other valve. So for what? $60 I fixed both at my valves at less than the cost of one DIG. I just threw out the 1 inch valve as I had no use for it. Only issue I had was programming. I didnt realize you needed to set 1 start time and a separate duration time for each zone. I initially just set the start time for 1 and 2 and 1 duration time so only one zone was turning on at 2 separate times. Watched the video and now I have it running perfectly. Those that had problems are either a) not using the dc seloniods (you need these) (b) got a dud (and it looks like orbits will send you a replacement if that happens)

              I use two of these and the electronics fail before the batteries need replacing. Even though they only last about 18 to 24 months they function better and are very easy to program. I've had a competitor brand and it was difficult to program and the 9-volt battery connection deteriorated in 18 months, which rendered it unusable.
