Customer Reviews

Awesome Timer
This was the 10th Galcon LCD timer I’ve purchased. They work great and thy are very user friendly. If you live where it gets cold, be sure to remove the batteries and place somewhere so it doesn’t freeze. Freezing causes them to crack.
Better than ever?
Everything I said in 2015 stands (basically, best timer I've ever used) but I'd like to note a design change. The LCD display now goes blank after a time. Don't panic -- the timer is still set and still working. Fine with me if it means extra battery life. Hit a key and the display's there again.
Best of Any I've Tried, by Far!
I've been through every kind of battery timer there is over some 40 years of gardening, including several models from Dripworks. This Galcon flip-top timer has been completely reliable and incredibly durable. At the risk of jinxing my whole collection by saying this, it just seems nothing can stop them. I always miss one when I bring them in for the winter. That was a death sentence for any other timer -- not this one. This year the one I missed was sprayed with water for weeks when the (not very good) extra-large Y cracked in a place where I didn't see the mist. It's fine. No corrosion and the battery compartment is dry. For some reason, I haven't yet lost a battery holder cover. It's a sort of tube, not a flat tray, though I'm not sure what that has to do with it. All the batteries (9-volt) test good after a long season's use. (The Galcon dial timers have been very good also -- but they go by every other day, every 3rd day, etc, so the day of the week changes. This makes them incompatible with timers that you set by which days they turn on, which is why I finally went over to the Galcons. The planting areas are spread over 4 acres, with the water coming from the well by different major pipe setups, so each set of plantings has to have its own battery timer. That's a lot of timers to try to juggle -- I went to these as areas were added, and replaced some dial timers with them.) If you put an Amiad heavy-duty filter (designed to work under constant pressure), before the timer, as you should, be sure to order enough hose to pipe thread adapters and tape to connect with. You'll need a double female for the filter/timer side and a pipe thread female/hose thread male for the hose side after the timer.
broken on delivery
This might be a good timer but I'll never know. The one I ordered was broken on delivery. Drip works would have replaced it but I'm busy Monday-Friday during their business hours. By the time I called back it was too late to call in the warranty. Obviously Galcon isn't doing a very thorough job of testing their products before shipping them out =/
Great timer
This timer is a great value and is as described. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced full function timer.
