Orbit 6-Station Sprinkler Timer with Remote

Let me start by simply saying this is a great product. I purposely waited 7 weeks to be able to give a review on something I have had for awhile instead of immediately after purchasing the item. I actually purchased a competitors brand based on several recommendations it was a much better product and this one was not as good. They were very wrong and I am the proof! This unit performed as advertised and has been doing a great job since the installation. I am so pleased I am going to buy the wireless rain and freeze sensor in a week or two. This unit is very easy to setup and make changes to a schedule you choose to program. Changeable as you need. I like to water different zones at different times and cycles. This unit allows for this. Some others are not as flexible. This is a great unit at a great price. The installation is easy when replacing an existing unit. I would guess it would be the same for a new one as well. I would not hesitate to buy the same unit should I need to or recommend it to a friend or relative. The remote control is just icing on the cake. Great for checking sprinkler heads and zones.

Super product, beats out all the competetitors. The only problem was they did Not carry in the store Sales floor so I had to order it. Simple, placed the main unit in a weatherproof box, by my pool controller, separate fused outlet, and leave the remote beside my TV/Sat remote on the Back Porch by the Pool.
If I just want to turn on one zone in the Back yard when I let the puppy out in the morning she won't get all wet and dirty, then I can set the timer remotely to do what I want. I have been fed up with the rain Bird and something else I had for 9 year’s, this looks good and practical to me!! I am a non retired 71 year old Mechanical/Electrical Engineer that has been more successful using common since that the BOOK!!

In the beginning I was just looking for a good solid state
6 zone sprinkler timer , to replace the 25 year old mechanical unit that came with the house I just recently
purchase . shopping around I found that for 10 to 15 dollars
more you could get one with a hand held remote . I am comparing this unit to the difference of having a TV without
a remote and one with. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO.
High quality throughout . easy to wire ....

I just ordered this unit online to replace an older unit that was not working properly.
I can see why everyone is rating it 5-star. It is easy to install and program. The best feature is the remote. This makes it possible to dial in all of your heads without running back and forth to the controller thus saving a lot of time and effort. Your neighbors will be impressed that you can "irrigate" while enjoying your favorite beverage on their deck. Shipping is fast...highly recommend!

Wireless is the way to go for ease and convenience

This is the second home I have had with the wireless remote. I would not go back to a no remote system if you paid me, well, depending on the amount. The remote makes troubleshooting and testing so much easier and you remain drier with less hassle in the early spring when chilly weather can still happen. It removes the need for the relay of people yelling from the problem area to the controls to "turn it on!" or "OFF! OFF! OFF!" The other line I looked at was Hunter and they are 4 times the price. No comparison! This is the best price for the most features!

Getting a timer with a remote is must! The remote made it very easy to test the system while setting up. It was very easy to program and has made watering much easier!
