    Programming Features

    Dual Programs
    This Timer has two programs ("Program A" and "Program B") that allow you to set up separate watering schedules for your Lawn, Gardens or Shrubs. Program A - allows you to select specific days of the week to water (e.g. Monday, Wednesday and Saturday) as well as every second day (every other day). Program B - allows you to specify two options:
  • Interval Watering - Interval watering is used to water at an interval from one to 28 days. An interval of one will water every day; an interval of two will water every other day, etc.
  • Odd or Even Days - The sprinkler timer can be selected to only water on Odd days or Even days. The odd/even schedule is based on the date.

    Fail-Safe Program
    If the timer loses AC power, the existing program, date and time will not be lost. After the AC power returns, the timer will recall the last program into memory. If both the AC power is lost and the battery is dead or missing, the user will have to reprogram the timer.

    Water Budgeting
    This feature is ideal when adjusting to seasonal watering demands. Instead of reprogramming your timer, the "Water Budget Mode" will enable easy adjustments to atering duration by ten percent increments
    from 10%-200%. For example, a budget percentage set at 70% will alter a 10-minute preset watering duration to 7 minutes.

    Start-Time Stacking
    When a start time is set before the previous program has completed, that start time will be "stacked" or delayed, and will start upon completion of the previous program.

    I had purchased this item for one of my customers who upgraded their manual valve sprinkler system. I had compared this Timer with a Rainbird. Hands down this has the same quality and functions as theirs except your saving about 1/2 of the expense. My customer and I very happy with this product and would highly recommend it to anyone!
