Orbit 62015 2-Dial Timer for ease of programming

41KoK58SXqL._SL500_AA280_.jpgI'm still hunting for the perfect timer. I just got this one from Orbit and in spite of the large page of programming instructions, this timer was easy to use. Just punch in time of day, and the time you wish the watering to start. Then set two dials for duration of watering and frequency. So far it has worked perfectly and is getting that hard to reach, neglected part of my garden!

Gilmour 9400 Electronic 4 Cycle Water Timer is Easy to Use

41hRVrWtveL._SL500_AA280_.jpg

The search for the perfect water timer is ongoing. This Gilmour Water Timer has been simplified for easy programming. It has four on/off watering cycles per day so your yard looks its best, even during hot summer months and the garden doesn't get over watered. The one-week clock repeats the cycle every seven days, or you can choose the skip function for watering every second or third day. There's also an option of manual or timed on/off, so you always control the watering amount and duration.

To help make programming even easier, the electronics are removable (just squeeze the side grips and pull), and the swivel nut allows for a quick connection to the faucet. Change your mind about the program you chose? Select the program override function to temporarily suspend watering. For added convenience, this Gilmour timer runs on four AA batteries (not included) and includes a low battery indicator when power is running low.
