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)

      worst battery operated irrigation valve ever
      ok, so I should qualify that this is ONLY battery operated irrigation valve I could find. the valve never opens nor closes as programmed. don't waste your time and kill your plants.

      Hey watermiser, Our support team would be more than happy to get to the bottom of why your timer is not opening or closing at the correct times. We can be reached by phone at (800) 488-6156 or online at support.orbitonline.com. We look forward to hearing from you, have a great rest of your day! OrbitIrrigation
        Stopped working after about a year
        This worked great for about a year; then the solenoid would click but no water flow. I tried new batteries and a new solenoid but same problem. I then used three 9v batteries to test my sprinkler valve and it works fine. Reconnected the timer and again; click but no flow. It appears the timer has somehow lost enough power for actuating the sprinkler valve, and Orbit doesn't have an easy way to contact them to attempt to resolve.

          Crapped out in 6 months
          This product got wet. It is supposed to be waterproof. I dried it, and changed the batteries. It programmed and everything--BUT. The only problem: it does not activate the valve solenoids. In short--it does not work anymore.
