The best and only advice I would give to potential purchasers is; get another product, from another manufacturer!
I bought this from Bunnings to replace a 13 year old Hunter controller because the old one's LCD readout was getting unreliable. This Holman won't be programmed to run more than ONE station! Now I'll get the electrician back to reinstall the Hunter and hopefully get my money back from Bunnings.
A piece of junk! Bad product and customer service.
Much like another post here, this is also the last product I’ll ever buy from Holman. I’m surprised Bunnings sells this junk. Unfortunately Bunnings range of Holman products is increasing.
The only good thing is that the Dial EZY is that it’s easy to program. It’s very unreliable, mine turned itself on even in “off mode”. The build quality is cheap.
This is the sixth item I’ve bought from Holman that has failed. I’ve had sprinklers, a WaterWhiz system and valves fail only after a very short time. Their customer service is no better, I onl...y got a reply from them when pushed by Bunnings. And they didn’t even offer an apology for the amount of time and money I’ve wasted on their products. Very poor for an Australian company - I purchase overseas now, professional brands like Hunter, not only are they sometimes cheaper but much better quality. As for Holman - never again!
HOLMAN irrigation controller - CO4406 - Didn't work from the moment of purchase
This is the second Holman product that I have purchased from Bunnings that I have found to be complete garbage.
Upon going to Bunnings to check out the watering systems that they had on offer, I found the Holman 6 Station Dial Ezy Irrigation controller - Model number CO4406. I was initially concerned as the store that I went to (Artarmon) had three already opened units on display (likely returned as they were sticky taped closed after the packets were cut open). I went to another Bunnings store - Rydalmere - and purchased one that had not b...een previously opened. Testing the unit before installing, I found that the electrical terminals were poorly designed and and that the electrical terminal screws fastened into plastic with self tappers. This immediately made me concerned as this NEVER provides adequate fixing of electrical connections (I'm an electrician). While the unit initially powered up under testing on the kitchen table, once I mounted the unit to the wall, the unit would NOT turn on. Testing the transformer indicated that the controller itself had failed within one hour of testing. Further testing showed that the transformer was fine, but that the electronics appeared to have failed for some reason. This unit had failed BEFORE even being put into service - rather pathetic!
