    Years of service

    How odd. The thing the other reviews complain about is what I like about mine. This is the 6th spring for both of mine. I bring them in in winter and take the batteries out. It says plainly in the instructions not to install them in a valve box, that they are water resistant not waterproof and they are intended for residential use not commercial use. That said i take very little precaution to keep mine dry - they're both mounted under the eave and that's it. They will handle quite a large flow. I use miles of 1/4" emitter tubing, a lot of 1/2 emitter tubing, sprayers, sprinklers and misters. One takes care of 60' of blackberries, 30' of raspberries, 4, 4' x 12' raised vegetable beds and 3 flowers beds. The other controls 4 large flower beds, 2 planters, 10 hanging baskets and 4 window boxes. If you don't ask more of it than it was designed to do and take the minimum of precautions they'll last for several years. When I bought mine they were only about $50 instead of $75 but if I had to replace one the price wouldn't stop me. I've definitely got my monies worth at less than $10 a year. If you need something you can abuse look elsewhere.

    The product works fine, but its packaging seems to be like a kluge. Galcon needs to repackage this product in a more compact and rugged format.

    Unreliable

    I've had 3 of these units. 2 failed in a few months over 2 years -- out of warranty. Poorly sealed and the electronics eventually fry. Do not mount in an in-ground valve box. Note, you can buy just the control unit for a lot less money if you need/want to replace.

    Nice operation, poor longevity

    This timer is easy to use and program. The control unit is detachable allowing one to program or adjust with ease. It worked well for the 8 months i used it. unfortunately it did not last. The control unit developed a leak and the electronics failed less than a year into the time I was using it. I liked it enought that i may try it again, but it was not inexpensive and i hate to risk buying another if it is going to last less than a year.
