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!

Questions & Answers
After running the system on a "Test Run" for 2 minutes, the system does not cut off. Never had this problem before. Have had system for 10 years. Can you please tell me why?
hello Freda, How are you turning the water off? Thru the controller or by turning off the water supply. Please let us know if you are running a master solenoid. We will need to establish if it is the solenoid or the controller at fault. For technical assistance, please call us on 1300 716 188. Thank you, your Holman Team!
I have a 6 station Ezy controller (outdoor).
It was turned off for winter and when I turned it back on, instead of watering two days a week (Mon and Frid), it waters every second day.
The display shows "ODD" and when I press the back arrow , it shows "EVEN"
How do I get back to just Mon and Frid?
When programming in 'Set watering Days" select the 7 days, indicate the days you wish to water on, then dial out of that mode, it will be set to your given days. If you need further assistance with programming, please give our tech department a call on 1300 716 188. Thank you, your Holman Team!
ive got a ezy dial controller . works fine except for the fact that it wont turn off and just loops back to the start.
do you have all the stations connected, ie is the last one connected and are you using a mains valve and or pressure pump with the setup?
kind of sounds like its stuffed though... is it under warranty? if you have a receipt bunnings will swap it over
Hello Brett, I would say that you have more than one start time set. If only wanting to water once a day ensure that there is only a time set into "Start 1" if you set a time into all four starts this will cause it to keep repeating the program four times.
If you need any help please call 1300716188.
