Its intuitive zone-by-zone scheduling allows you to set watering times differently for each area of the yard, providing greener results with less water. By turning the dial to each zone, you can easily set custom days of the week, odd or even days, or a cycle number of days independent of all other zones. You can also set up to 4- different custom watering times of the day to water slopes and clay soils in short intervals to allow water to soak in and avoid runoff. Each zone's settings can be reviewed quickly with easy to read LED indicator lights.

This unit can be run with a extension if you wish. Or if you have a little electrical knowledge, just replace the existing cord.

How do you replace the Battery?

Asked by KOKO December 28, 2020

Answers

Not a word about backup battery replacement in the user guide. I found a YouTube video that described the procedure. You should replace it every year. Unplug the controller. Disconnect ALL the zone wires and the rain sensor wires. Remove the controller from it's mounting place on the wall. Remove 4 screws on the back of the controller and pull off the front panel. Remove the circuit board. The battery is a coin battery on the left side of the circuit board. Do the battery swap, put it back together, remount not he wall, reattach all the zone wires, plug it back into the wall outlet. Reprogram date and time. Zone programs are kept in a nonvolatile memory. That's the whole story and this is why they don't mention it in the user guide.

Power usage is negligable. I measure +- 3w. Note valves are latching and only receive a pulse. It would be better to figure a fee on the number of heads per VILLA or maybe charge members more for having a longer last name.

does this timer automatically start your pump

Asked by Bobby August 21, 2020

Answers

No. This timer will give you a 24v signal for the 12 stations and also for the master. The design is to trigger valves.normally you would have a pressure switch controlling your pump. However you could use a 24v relay on the master circuit to switch the pump on and off. Advise caution that you would still want a pressure switch in case your pump outdrive s your sprinklers.

How long is the cord?

Asked by Greg May 26, 2020

Answers

Be forewarned on the 6ft power cord length. I have recently received several timers that have a power cord under 3.5ft. This might still work for many of you but if you really need 6ft to reach your outlet (and are not going to hard-wire) then it could be an issue.

Home Depot had the best price. Easy to install and program. Only minor complaint is, if you connect a rain sensor, there is no indicator that I can see that tells you the status of the rain sensor or whether it's hooked up.

Very easy install/conversion from my old 8 zone Rainbird controller. The only hard part was grinding out a larger hole for the conduit pipe that holds the wires. Just used 8 of the 12 zones available on this new controller. It is little smaller than old controller, so I have to paint to cover up old paint. Some nice new features too! Love it!

This product replaced my 14 year old Rain Bird Irrigation Timer. The removal of the old one, was more difficult then the install of the new one. Tip#1; Use wire markers and label each and every wire, especially the ZONE wires. The unit is supplied by 120VAC, where my old unit was 24VAC. So, my Hunter rain sensor could not easily hook up to the new unit. I used my old AC adapter and connected it with this. Summary: This unit is SUPER EASY to INSTALL and SUPER EASY TO PROGRAM. I had it tested and running in far less than one hour. The price is also very good. Enjoy this great SIMPLE to install and setup Irrigation Timer From RAINBIRD.

I just fully tested the timer on automatic for the first time today and it worked as expected. Rain Bird makes quality products and this one is no exception. It's easy to use and has enough features to allow simple testing in the early stages of installation. Although there are a few things that could have been better I think it deserves a five star rating overall. First off, it did surprise me that watering start times could only be made in 5 minute increments and only 4 times a day. In the heat of the summer here I need at least 6 waterings in the flowerbed per day. Since it's a twelve station unit I have extra stations and a workaround to accommodate my needs and so that turned out to be no problem for me. Another thing is the knockouts which are too solid to be knocked out. I called customer service and was told to use a hammer and screwdriver as a chisel to make the hole. They said they changed them when customers complained that the earlier thin plastic knockouts failed under certain conditions. I said I think they should have left them the way they were or use hole covers. In any event I opted for a hole saw and got the clean look I wanted. One last thing; what is it with all the small print lately? It's showing up in manuals and ads and products like this one. Has epoxy ink become that expensive? Certainly there's room for a 50% increase in the lettering size and it would make it so much easier to read.

Good Controller and Easy to Use
I've only had this new controller installed for a couple weeks but so far, I'm very happy with it. It replaced my original Rain Bird controller that lasted about 25 years. I was a little apprehensive about trying to install the new one myself since I don't install irrigation systems and I'm not an electrician. The new one is really easy to install as long as you label the zone wires coming into it. Programming the SST1200 was simple too and it's easy to change days, times, etc. If this lasts anywhere near as long as the old one did, I will be extremely happy.
