Questions & Answers

Is it normal for water pressure to decrease when using this product?

I have noticed that when I use this product, the pressure of the water coming out of the the spigot is significantly reduced. Is this normal? And if it is, is there any way to modify the product such normal water pressure is restored?
Asked by: ALopez7
The first one did not reduce flow/pressure. I bought three more..and they ALL reduced flow by at least half making it useless to run a sprinkler. Even the original one eventually reduced flow after the first summer use. Not sure it can be modified.

can this timer be programmed to run 2-3 times a week or do i have to activate ea.time i need to water? time

Asked by: Cindy
Each time you need to water. It is mechanical only and has no electronic component to keep track of time other than the 120 minute spring mechanism.

Does it require water pressure to run?

I want to use it to control water in a gravity fed hose. If it requires water pressure to push the timer, this won't work for me. But if it's just a spring type device, it should be fine.
Asked by: BAleiHi
No it is spring operated. All you have to do is set the time by turning the dial to the time you want to water.

These have a 3 yr warranty, but, like most such things, the damage done when it explodes at midnight after only 2 weeks isn’t covered. HD refunded my money & I bought another in the hope that it was a singular fluke. We’ll see. Fool me once…
