Melnor 4 zone aqua timer dosent follow program


Water timers and Melnor timers last a year or two. They come with 1 year warranty for defects in workmanship.
Change batteries, reset timer if there is a reset protocol, buy another timer. Melnor, Orbit, are major brands. Gardena is not supported. Yardworks repackages other brands.
Copy following link for all watering and irrigation timers on market, with links to manuals for each brand:

How to set time on Yardworks two zone water timer


Copy following link to access manuals for each brand of water timer on market 2013:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#sprinkler
Yardworks does not have website, manuals or warranty claim procedure.
Instead, yardworks repackages other brands of timer, generally water timers, such as orbit or melnor and raindrip. And sometimes repackages other brands of outdoor timers.
Recommend folks stay away from timer-repackagers such as Yardworks, Timex, First Alert, and buy brand names that have clear customer resources.

I have just bought the yardworks 2 zone water timer from Canadian Tire and there are no instructions anywhere. I have managed to get it to work for one minute and I have it set to do the same in one hour...


Delayed Watering
You can delay the first watering cycle of each watering zone by up to 12 hours by using the small button at the bottom middle of each zone area. Press the delay button 1 time for each hour you wish to delay the first start time. The "Low Battery" light will illuminate when you press the button. The maximum delay is 12 hours.
For example, if you are programming at 4:00 in the afternoon and you want your timer to water every 12 hours, but you want the first watering of the day to start at 6:00 a.m., press the Delay button two times. Without the delay, the first cycle would have occurred 12 hours after the timer is programmed (4:00 a.m.). The delay feature changes that to 6:00 a.m. The timer will then water every 12 hours after that.

I have 4 zones can run them manually; but they will not come on the automatic setting. Springs are strong; timer itself keeps accurate time. I did read inside the box about a "Silver Pin"...


If zones are not advancing, then 1) Clock motor is not rotating dial > replace clock motor, 2) on-off trippers are worn down > replace trippers, 3) or the day skipper is set to skip all days and all skipper pins are pushed down, 4) or sprinkler valve is bad.

The sprinkler timer dial rotates each 24 hours. The trippers cause sprinkler head to turn on zone 1 for example. Zone 1 waters until the dial rotates to part of dial with no tripper. Without a tripper on the dial, the timer turns off circuit to sprinkler. At this point, the sprinkler valve mechanically advances to zone 2 and waits for timer to turn off again. The timer does not advance sprinkler to next zone > the sprinkler valve is designed to advance each time circuit turns off. The timer just turns on and off. When next tripper rotates around, the timer turn on the circuit and zone 2 begins to water.

The silver pin inserted at 12midnight position is for advancing the day skipper wheel.

Cant set my sylvania outdoor timer, says hit zip set and enter zipcode.i can only get 3 numbers in


Open following link for Sylvania timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Sylvania-timers-and-manuals.html

3 numbers is correct.
77482 and 77468 will be inside same time zone.
So set 3 digits 774 and timer knows where you are astronomically.
The timer does not need your full mailing address zip.

Press red reset button.
Press mode button until ZIP icon displays.
Depress and HOLD clear zip-set button until display flashes.
Set first 3 area code numbers.

If zip set is not working correctly, then timer is defective.

I have Intermatic sprinkler model T8845pv. I want to set it for daily watering in only one of 8 zones. When I remove the gold pins in the main dial and locate the zone I want to water, it waters the...


Intermatic sprinkler timers are 24 hour repeat cycle, with day-skipper option.
The timer does not change zones. The timer just turns ON-and-OFF at scheduled times.
Each tripper represents 12-15 minutes of watering. And then the timer circuit turns OFF.
When timer circuit turns OFF, the sprinkler system is designed to advance to next zone each time.
So when the timer circuit turns OFF and then turns ON again, your sprinkler control starts watering the next zone. This is the way sprinkler systems are designed.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#sprinkler

If you had a sprinkler system with 1 zone, or could change your sprinkler system to 1 zone on certain days, then the timer would turn that zone on-off each time.
Call a local sprinkler company and see if they have a dual control or some solution >> but sprinkler controls are outside my area of expertise. I am timer expert.

You could solve problem with two separate sprinkler systems, but that would require two timers. I have never seen a 2-channel sprinkler timer. There are electronic two-channel timers that can handle two different programming schedules with minimum 1 minute on-off, and these timers can cost a few hundred dollars up to thousands, PLUS cost of the dual sprinkler system. Add a comment and let me know if two-channel timers are something you want information on.

Instructions for this timer are complicated.

How do I test a specific Orbit Watering station without turning on the whole system?


I have done this in a couple ways. With a digital timer you can select a zone on manual and turn only that zone on. with a mechanical timer, you can set the dial to that zone and increas the duration. You can "hot wire" the zone by moving the zone wire to connect to the low voltage wire input to the zone. You can take a transformer out to the ground box and with an extention cord "hot wire " the zone at the ground box.
