Water won't stop after removing a electronic water timerfrom hose

I had been using a Vigoro Electronic Water Timer on a hose in my yard while on vacation. Upon returning I removed the timer -- it is not on the hose any longer -- but now the water will not turn off, even though the device is completely off, and the faucet handle is turned to off -- the water is still flowing.

Check inside the faucet to see if the black washer there is worn, broken, or missing. Turn the water off inside the house, unscrew the nut below the faucet handle, and turn the handle in the ON direction to remove the stem. The washer is screwed into the stem at the bottom. Replacement washers are available at hardware stores, Home Depot, etc.

Need to known how to set the timer do not have a manual we have the VIGORO deluxe water timer, they are about two years old.


I do not know how to set the timer, but can offer possible source for manual.

VIGORO timers can be same as Melnor:
Match up image with your timer and then download manual.
Water timers last 1 or 2 seasons. There is no repair for broken water timers.

We pulled our stacked washer out from the wall to service the cold water hose filter on the back of the unit. when we pushed it back into it's location the washer won't start, won't fill...


I know you don't want to hear this, but either you did something to the hose filter or you didn't get it plugged back in correctly.

If you banged the water inlet valve in moving it back, it might be damaged.

Suggest you unplug everything and start over.

Looking for a timer to turn a 120volt 2amp water pump on for 1min 2 times aday that will last for more than 3 years please help


1) You need 120V timer to control 2 amp water pump.
V x A = watts so 120V x 2amp = 240 watt
754 watts per HP divided by 240W = 1/3 HP horsepower.

2) To get 1 minute time periods, you need electronic timer.
Most electronic timers have minimum 1 minute set time.
Same schedule each day, you can use 356-day, 7-day or 24-hour electronic timer.

3) To have electronic timer last longer than 3 years you need a clean circuit and expensive timer.
Use circuit analyzer to check circuit. Hire electrician to check circuit and replace pump if necessary to make sure timer will last as long as possible.

4) Intermatic ET70115C should last for many years. Battery is replaced every 8 years.
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/electronic%20time%20switches/next%20generation%20time%20switches.aspx
ET70115C $379
http://www.1000bulbs.com/product/3391/ELEC-ET70115C.html

5) You posted under EH10 water heater timer, which is inexpensive water heater timer rated for 1HP. You can't expect inexpensive timer to last as long when using a motor, although 1/3 HP is lightweight motor.

6) You can buy five EH10's for same price as one ET70115C.

7) List of ordinary electronic timers, each with slightly different features
Intermatic EH10 $73
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-EH10-Electronic-Heater-Indoor/dp/B000GHIPOA
Intermatic ET1105C $96
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-ET1105C-Hour-Electronic-Switch/dp/B002X1FYWI
Intermatic ET101 $101

Tork EW100B $177

Sylvania SA300 $72
http://www.amazon.com/Sylvania-SA300-120-Volt-Single-Pole-Industrial/dp/B000KKNEO4

8) See wiring diagrams and manuals for some of the timers listed above:

I have 2 Vigoro 196-036 watering timers. Why does water come out of the three holes near the battery compartment on one of them?


It comes out of the holes because the water goes in the holes. That might sound dumb but Vigoro designed these only to be in dry conditions, such as attached to the water line. I used them for sprinklers, but the water poured into the timer so bad it shorted it out in a week. I did find a vigoro timer with no holes and a sealed unit, and they work great. But I can't find them anymore.

Regarding the Vigoro Electronic Water Timer, Model 196 036: How do I program the timer to water every day, in the early a.m., then in the evening? Is the greatest hourly spread per day 12 hrs.? In...


I think you almost have it right, you can program how many hours apart.
4=6 x per day
6=4 x per day
8=3 x per day
12= 2 x per day
24=1 x per day
Then you set how long you want it to be on, but that can't exceed your hour setting. I believe these are the same timers as Melnor. You can go to their web site for manuals. http://www.melnor.com/instructions.php. If you really want exact timing, I'd get a quality electric timer, and then buy a electric valve such as you'd use for a sprinkler system.

Do I turn the faucet on fully?


Yes, when using an inline water timer, it does not control the pressure of the water, only the "on/off" of the pressure. So make sure to keep the faucet at the pressure you want the drip system set at as if you weren't even using a timer.

Water is trickling out


No. Check to make sure the battery is good. If so, and you just purchased the timer, take it back.

Vigoro water timer problems


I also had this problem and found that the water pressure was too high. I turned the water spicket down one a a half turns (yours may vary) and now it's working fine.
