Finally! A timer that's easy to use!

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!

My wife has four, or more, and a two port and two single port Orbit timers. I bought the first ones four years ago and we've added more every year. And I also bought pressure regulators because at that time they were recommended by Orbit and the water pressure here varies quite a bit. With the regulators, sprinklers don't water the drive when the pressure goes up. With the timer, they save a lot of water. It's almost like having a sprinkler system, except she can move the sprinklers. Every outdoor hose bib we have is connected to a regulator and a timer. She puts new batteries in each spring and wraps the timers with an old towel in the fall so they don't freeze. It never stays below freezing for a whole day here. I've needed to clean the battery contacts a few times by rubbing them with a pencil eraser to get them going in the spring. Not too bad for something that stayed outside, rain or shine, for 12 months.

I bought this product to water my yard during the day until I can afford to install a sprinkler system. It is easy to use and I have one for the front yard and one for the back. It will water through three hoses up to three times each per day. Once you set it up you only need to touch it if it rains or you want to change the settings. They need to improve on the wall mounting because it requires a hammer drill to mount it to your foundation. And the three plastic hose nozzles should really be brass at this price. They are easily stripped when trying to connect the garden hose.

This is a great timer. It lets you water 3 different zones all at different programmable times! Not like other models that have 1 prgrammable timer and a manual on/off, this has 3 timers and all of them have manual on/off. Great timer, would buy again and again! ! !

After setting up the timer for 3 stations, after one week, the second station would keep running and never, ever stop whether it was in the off position or not. I replaced the batteries and it still occured. I called Orbit, they said it was a mechanical error and not my fault, and said they're sending another one to me. I called last Thursday and one week later I am still waiting for it in by UPS.

  • 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).
