    Good for a season or two

    I bought this solar recharging timer as a potential solution to a problem with traditional battery powered garden timers. Timers with regular batteries work fine until the batteries go dead and then the timer stops working but you don't realize it until the plants on the deck all dry up and die. (annoying!) . Solar powered timers don't need their batteries replaced and ours worked fine for the spring, summer and fall season. But winter came (we have mild winters with little to no frost) and one day the timer failed, it turned on and stayed on then the battery was too weak to shut off. The water was on for an hour. Long story short. the screen is blank. it doesn't respond to button presses even after leaving it in the sun all day. Eventually put it in hazardous electronic waste bin.. A waste of $70.

    Leaking like a sieve after one season

    Purchased in 2021. Worked for one season. Stored inside my house for the winter. This spring I hooked it up and it's leaking like crazy - and won't shut off. Very disappointed.

    Works Great

    So far it's been excellent. Installation was easy. Just have to clean the solar panel once a week.

    DIG Waterproof Solar Timer

    Unit is as described. Swapped out old units with these units and systems functioned perfectly. Would recommend these to anyone looking for a reasonably price solar drip irrigation timer.

    DripWorks disappoints

    The timer did not work; I had to call DIG to find out the problem was in the timer, not in my installation. DripWorks would not talk with me about a replacement until after they had received the timer as a return. DripWorks would not reimburse my full costs for shipping it back. DripWorks says they don't have another DIG solar hose end timer. All-in-all, a costly and useless purchase.

    Dig waterproof timer

    The timer itself is ok so far, however the instructions to program are not clear and simple. Had to call support and ask for help. If you program these timers on a daily basis of course it’s easy, but for a first time user it is confusing. Like all dig timers and I have others they are not easy to program. They are very good timers , but need to simplify programming.

    Love this timer!

    Works great, as long as my pressure isn't too much.
