This System is absolutely fantastic the combinations that can be set up are far superior to any that i have read reviews on , Installed system within half a day ,plus pipe work to 2 large cold frames and others on port 1 ,set greenhouse up on system 2 for watering whilst on holiday 4 days later Easy to programme each port for daily ,start time ,amount of time for watering multiple functions for various days 1, 2, or 3 day delay duration ,there is enough pressure even with reducers in place , for a full 100 ft garden, greenhouse ,and hanging baskets and more
Best buy for me this year and years to come and the plus is the free 3rd port for pond filling , deck cleaning etc always set to on ,just flip the left trigger down and away you go

this is the best auto watering timer I have used, its easy to program. Easy to manually override (which is essential for setting up, and useful the rest of the time) and my favourite feature is the manual valve. it means I can use the hose for topping the pond up and washing the car without having to disconnect the timer. I have had it for over six months and its worked reliably.

This is great value for money and far superior to the branded alternative. It is easy to programme. I was able to set up the drippers (these are not included) for the greenhouse and all the baskets and tubs on one hose and then the spike watering attachment on another hose for veg beds and lawn. This kept everything in tip top condition during two weeks away when there was very little rain.
The price was excellent at £33. It is now £89 on Amazon.

This product was better than I expected. I have bought automatic watering timers before and they have either been poor quality and failed or difficult to use. So far this timer has been really good. It is easy to use, programming it is so simple. The quality is excellent and it has not failed yet. The 3 ports make it really versatile. If you have every tried to run a couple of sprinklers through a single timer you will find there is never enough water flow. With this timer you can use 2 ports and have them on at different times so you get the full water flow for each. The third manual port is also great for leaving the normal hosepipe connected all the time. One note of caution you will need 3 tap type fittings to fit on the outlets in order to connect your hoses. The unit comes with threaded outlets like a garden tap.

For the price this is a really good timer. Setting the watering programs is really easy and having the 2 outlets is also handy. The manual outlet is pure genius. I have the unit connected directly to a couple of water butts feeding a dripper system in the greenhouse from one outlet and the other outlet feeds a dripper system within a cold frame. Although the unit recommends a minimum of 25 psi it seems to be working well and all the drippers are being fed with a decent amount of water. I have also connected the manual outlet to a hose with a tap so that I can fill a watering can inside the greenhouse. The large display is also useful as my wife has difficulty seeing but she has managed to set the programs easily.

I was looking forward to using this piece of kit so my new lawn could be watered whilst I was on holiday. Unfortunately it leaked from where it attached to the tap and one of the timer hose connectors temporarily worked. It does not come with hozelock adaptors, although someone answered yes to my question if they did.

In the end I went with a hozelock timer and had to buy extras to make it work for 2 hoses but still ended up as the same cost for the orbit.

I've had many other watering kits (other popular brands) before and this one is excellent value for money. Very easy to set up and very versatile. I bought it for micro irrigation purposes and the 2 automatic ports enables irrigating different part of the garden in sequence (or can open both port at the same time but pressure would half). The manual port is excellent and I've added a manual water timer to it since I now never close the tap into the kit. Only aspect that got me confused for a while was the rain delay. It was not clear that it is just a manual feature (i.e. you have to press if you want to delay your watering programme). Once figure out, its easy as it goes. Another bonus is that it uses simple AA batteries (included), unlike the big brands that use bigger/costlier batteries.

This was a replacement for a much older Orbit timer which had given up. It proved much easier to programme, a truly well built product, solid construction -hopefully giving as long service as its predecessor. Delivered promptly so that my plants did not suffer from the hot weather. Highly recommended.
