    Want a timer you can set without having to relearn every year? Without having to get up at 5 am to start it? Easy to change settings? This is it! 3 timers in 1, you set the start time, how long you want it to run and how frequently you want it to run, even several times a day. And the schedules can be different for each outlet. There's a manual override so you can hook up a hose for occasional use. There's a rainy day feature that lets you shut everything off for a day at the push of a button. And you can expand beyond 3 lines if your watering schedule is the same for 2 lines by simply attaching a "Y" nozzle to one of the hose hookups. I bought one of these to try and have ordered a 2nd one. I actually need 2 more and will buy them as the old timers die off...or when I get fed up enough to toss them! Great buy (check pricing on individual timers versus this 3-in-1 timer), easy to use (once you've read and understood the directions you can actually toss them) and I strongly recommend!

    I have 2 other hose timers ( different model)by Orbit and LOVE them, this particular model does not seem to be good quality. After just 2 months, this particular one no longer works, the buttons do not work, and after replacing the batteries I can't even set the clock. It is going back to the store today! Do not waste your money on this model!

    I've had this for a few weeks now and it has performed flawlessly. I had to replace my old orbit system and this is 100% better. It is incredibly easy to program, very user friendly. The lettering on the dial is very large, as are the number in the digital readout. It takes 2 AA batteries, and I used some that I bought at the dollar store and they work just fine. The old timer would only work with Duracell batteries, which don't come cheap. All in all I love this timer. I put a splitter on the outside faucet and have connected a hose to one side and this time to the other side of the splitter, so I can put water in the pool and fountains.

    Nice timer, easy to use. I've only used manual programming so I don't know how difficult/easy it is to program since I've not used that feature. I have 2 of these & they work well.

    I was tired of moving water hoses, watching the clock, and wasting time. My buddy has an Orbit Timer also. I went on Intranet and did a little research and bought a three bib outlet timer. After it came in, I read the instructions, installed batteries, and hooked it up to my house bib outlet. I timed it the first two days and it started and stopped automatically. No problems. Money well spent, no reservations.

    • A. You can attach any number of hoses from 1 to 3. Simply do not program a start time for the faucets you don't wish to connect.

    • A. You set each separately so yes, you can have as many as you want off.

    • A. Don't set the third. It will have dashes on the screen. If you have set it and don't want to used it any more, RESET the timer and set station 1 & 2.

    • A. By clearing the programming on the stations that you do not want to use, you can, indeed, use only one port.

    • A. I have one of my timers set up for watering schedules on 2 nozzles and occasional hose use on the 3rd...which means it's off until I want it. So yes...you can use just 2.

    • A. Each outlet is controlled separately. I'm using the timer with only two hoses connected and haven't had any problems.

    • A. I do not have this exact model, but I do have an older Orbit two-station version. Mine allows me to set the watering time for either station to zero minutes, so it won't run at all on that station if desired. I would assume this three-station model allows for the same. See the picture I've included (the third outlet on mine is for a manual bypass faucet).

    Would like clarification if this lets you set each port separately or does it just allow 3 connections that all must come on at the same time.

    • A. you set each port individually. In fact, you can cause ports to malfunction if you set them up such that two ports try to open at the same time.

    • A. You can program each outlet individually with limits. The main program decides how many times a day each outlet runs and then you can program each outlet for a separate time. Or you can just have it repeat every 4 hours or so.

    • A. This timer will allow individual timed control of each port, but not all three at once. Each port can have one timed schedule on it, and they all must be set for different times. Thanks for the question!
