This easy-to-program 6-station timer has text messaging in English, Spanish, and French. The convenient one touch sliding bars adjust watering duration of each station, making it ideal for sun versus shade, lawn versus flowers, and differing soil conditions. The 3 independent programs can set your watering time from 1 to 120 minutes. It is easy to install and has great water conservation features such as rain delay.

- Up to 4 start times per program
- Rain delay 1-99 days
As far as Orbit timers go, I am usually not a big fan, but this timer is the exception. I like the slide feature. You simply slide to the amount of time you want to program on each station. If you want to stop watering on a particular station you simply move the slide to the off position. Manual start is the same, if you want to manually start a station just move the slider to the on position.
Pros – Easy to use and program
Cons – It’s an Orbit. A lot of Orbit products are not real reliable or durable.
