Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5★ by 64reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Best I have found, and I've been through a few I love this Orbit hose timer and today I just bought another to replace a less functional timer that finally failed. Though, as with any timer, you do have to bring it in before it freezes, it is very resistant to weather, even the brutal Arizona sun. It is easy to set, and that includes the ability to set the current time, which some timers won't do. It is easy to remember how to do everything, since all the instructions are right there in big, weather-resistant letters. You can manually override to water for as long as you wish without messing up the program you have already entered. You can easily ask it to refrain from watering for a day if it rains, and not mess up the program that's already entered. Super functional and the essence of simplicity to use. I've tried at least five other timers, some that were much more expensive, and none perform like this one. The only thing I wish is that it had those quick-release ends (which I always add to them since it makes hooking them up so much easier.) 05/24/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Does the job & simple to use I love this timer because it's simple to operate and works like a charm. Others I've used I had to read the directions every time to reset or change it. The second year I hooked it up I did have problems, but this product has a 5-year warranty. I contacted the company and after verifying my purchase information and asking questions about the care of the product, they promptly replaced it. They stand by their warranty. 05/14/2014
Rated 1 out of 5★ by orbit 56158 - Bad out of the box I got this to control a drip system that would feed the regulator. Right out of the box it failed. Put in new alkaline batteries and hooked to hose to test before I installed at another residence. Water would turn on but not off. When it was on it definitely reduced water pressure as another user stated. Wasn't concerned about that cause its fine for the drip system. I could hear it trying turn off but no go.I kept messing with it for a while then gave up. It's too bad because it feels like a solid unit (even though its plastic) and well sealed against water, elements and very simple to program. I could try returning and get another but don't need the headaches down the road. I'm going to just install a regular sprinkler valve and basic timer. Also made in China 03/11/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good timer for the price This water hose timer does what it promised to do. As long as I keep working batteries in it, it waters the plants well. I like the bypass feature where I can manually water at any time and set the length of time. It allows me to set it, then move away from the area before it turns on the water. 07/26/2012
Rated 2 out of 5★ by doesnt work in low psi applications Biggest problem for me is that Im using it in a gravity fed system. So, I needed a low pressure device. This device requires a minimum of 25 psi...way more than most gravity fed systems. The minimum psi was burried in the specs of the packaged unit. Wished they would have made better disclosure online to save me the trouble of returning. 03/24/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent!!! I bought two of these for my gardens drip irrigation system and they both worked very well. I never had any problems with them and they held up to the outdoor weather great. They will definitely be used again next year. I always like to shop around and found out that walmart had the lowest price for these timers. They are very easy to set up and I never had to change the batteries in them, I used them from March to the end of July. I would recommend these to anybody thinking about buying one of these timers. 08/09/2012
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Works great....for a while Bought this timer 2.2 years ago and it worked fine until yesterday. While checking my garden I noticed the water was on, not at the scheduled time and at a slow rate. I turned the dial to off. heard it click off, then back to auto. After a few seconds I heard it click on again. I hit the reset button, changed the batteries, no matter. Still came back on by itself, unscheduled and at a slow rate. When placed in manual or at the scheduled time a louder click was heard and full flow was observed. Seems to be an electronic problem. Warranted for one year only, this is now useless. Plus, since I don't check the garden every day. I do not know how much water was wasted..$25 for 2 years 2 months of service, you decide if it's worth it. 06/27/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Set it up and left town Vacation came and the veggies were growing and we did not want to loose them. So what's next the old timer was shot. So we looked for the best deal and used my extra money form Pay Pal to buy it with.It did what we needed it to do. 07/22/2014
