Water Timer with Meter Saves Time and Conserves Water

  • Dual-action meter lets you water for a set amount of time or deliver a specific amount of water
  • Turn the water on and the meter shuts it off automatically
  • Set it to apply water from 1 to 240 minutes or 1 to 1400 gallons

Now you won't need to remember to turn off the spigot each time you water with a soaker hose or sprinkler. Simply set this manual Water Timer and Flow Meter to apply water for a specific amount of time, from one minute to 240 minutes. Or, set it to apply a specific amount of water, from one gallon to 1400 gallons. Turn the water on, and when the desired amount of water has been applied, the meter will automatically turn off the water. Now you'll know just how much water you've applied — which is especially handy when you pay for water by the gallon or when watering restrictions are in place.

  • Polypropylene plastic, rubber, stainless steel
  • 4-3/4" L x 2-1/4" W
  • Protect from freezing temperatures
  • Reset for each use

        wasn't a good fit with mister system

        By lulu

        from sacramento

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Worked With Sprinker

        Cons

        • Or With Water On Low
        • When Used With Misters
        • Won't shut off

        Best Uses

          worked well with regular sprinkler setup. Won't shut off with low water pressure systems, such as using with drip or mister. If a single sprinkler was set very low would stay on for days....

          Does not work with gravity water tanks

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Great With 40psi Pressure

          Cons

          • No Good 1000 Gallon Tank

          Best Uses

          • Great With House Pressure

          Great to water yard with meter set to 100 gallons and it kicks off using 40PSI pressure. Was told should work on 1000 gallon storage tank but meter does not move, because water does not moving fast enough to register. I kept it since I use it on the yard with a sprinkler and on large beds at 40PSI. I also use it when watering by hand with water coming from the house.

          Doesn't work

          Cons

            Best Uses

              This product doesn't work with a soaker system. The setting selected never changes and the valve never shuts off. I had the water running all night and didn't notice the water hadn't shut off until the morning. Wasted gallons of water as well as the electricity to run the pump. Suggest passing on this product

              Cheap junk

              By JudR

              from Springfield, OR

              Pros

              • None

              Cons

              • Cheaply Made
              • Doesn't Work

              Best Uses

                I'm a long time customer of Gardener's Supply, and think many of their products—especially the tomato and bean towers, which I own quite a few of—are some of the best available. So when I saw the new line of automated drip irrigation products, I thought my irrigation needs for my very large garden were solved. I purchased multiple Snip-N-Drip systems, plus multiple Water Timer & Flow Meters, so I could create a number of different irrigation zones in my garden.

                These products are a great idea, but very poorly executed. Only one of the flow meters worked; the other five I purchased would not automatically advance and shut off the water flow as set. Customer Service said they probably did not work because my water pressure must be too low.

                As for the Snip-N-Drip systems, every single zone I set up developed, within a week or two, major leaks in the soaker hose portions of the zones. Customer Service said the hoses must have failed because my water pressure was too high.

                Really? On the same water source, one product fails because the pressure is too high, and another because it's too low? How about this alternative explanation: the products are poorly made out of cheap, defective materials.

                it doesn't work for everyone

                      We could not use this timer with our low pressure system although it was advertised as suitable for all pressures. It would likely work for others with more water pressure.

                      Disappointed

                      Pros

                      • Convenient
                      • Well built

                      Cons

                        Best Uses

                          This unit does not have the ability to measure small amounts of water. Not good for a drip or soaker system. The amount of water measured and delivered depends on the pressure you feed it. That is not measuring, it is guessing. Product was poorly described and therefore returned.

                              Product description said water timer but it really only measures waters volume. I needed a timer to turn on automatically. This didn't do that. Returned product.

                                    I bought two of these to go with the four drip systems and after one week, they stopped working properly. First, they would stop just before the OFF and kept running. Then in a couple of days, they would just stay where I set them ( 1.5 hrs) and not move at all. I may as well as just turn on the hose and set a separate timer for all the good these are. If I could give these no stars, I would. Don't waste your money.
