Affordable option when running several timers
I"ve used these for years and currently have 7 running on taps for fruit trees, veg garden, and general plants. I have two spares just in-case as I have had trouble with one that wouldn't turn off and another which wanted to water whenever it decided to. But overall I am happy with these. (I only use the 2 dial ones, not the digital screen). One thing I don't like about the new model is waiting 24 hours after setting. I like the older model that started straight away after setting the timer. On average mine have lasted 3-4 years. To Holman....If people stop buying your timers, I'll gladly be sent a box full ... saves driving 5 hours to the nearest Bunnings to purchase. As in saying that the price is affordable when running as many as I do.
Unfit for purpose
Bought 4 Holman 2 Dial Electronic Tap Timer CO1601 at Bunnings in the last month
Initially they worked well for about 2 weeks
One literally cooked a battery guess have to blame the heat but poor product design if a tap timer exposed to the elements can't tolerate heat
All the others proved to be impossible to seal properly on the tap resulting in loss of water when timer was off. Once again poor design, the tap collar very thin plastic allowing flexing
My biggest complaint with all 4 was random (increasing in occurence) failure to switch off at the end of set watering time. Shudder to think what the next water bill will be like
