3/4" Digital Hose End Timer
The 3/4 Digital Hose End Timer, one in DIG's newest range of hose end timers, offers simplified programming and improved monitoring of battery power with less current, resulting in longer battery life and more reliable operation. With higher flow rates at lower inlet pressures and a range of programming features, the B09D delivers a reliable and cost-effective solution for residential use. The timer has four start times per day with durations from 1 minute to 12 hours 59 minutes in an operating flow range of .5 to 6.3 gallons per minute, allowing use in a wide range of applications including drip irrigation or micro sprinkler systems connected to a garden hose or faucet/spigot. It uses one 9-volt alkaline battery that can last for over a year.
This Digital Hose End Timer has a 3/4 swivel female hose inlet and outlet with male hose thread so it can be attached into a garden hose or faucet/spigot. Our suggestion is to install the timer above ground to any hose thread connection. The timer uses six programming buttons. The left button is used only for On mode, the button on the right is used only for Off mode, and the four buttons in the center are used to program the unit.
This hose end timer requires one 9-volt battery (alkaline battery recommended).
I've used these several times and they've been reliable and sturdy. The programming is fairly robust, but easy to use. I'll add that I needed to call their customer support with a question about installation, and spoke with a rep right away who gave me useful information. I appreciated getting a fast answer.
