With higher flow rates at lower inlet pressures and a range of programming features, the B09B delivers a reliable and cost-effective solution for residential use. The timer has four start times per day with durations from 1 minute to 12 hours 59 minutes in an operating flow range of .5 to 6.3 gallons per minute, allowing use in a wide range of applications including drip irrigation or micro sprinkler systems connected to a garden hose or faucet/spigot.

Best of the best
I use this hose end timer for my drip line to my shrubbery. By far, the best timer on the market and priced below the competitors.

DIG HOSE END TIMER
Over the past five-years I have purchased ten of these timers. They have worked well, but three of the ten have failed. Either the programing has died or the valve has
failed to close at the end of the selected time cycle. So,
the suggestion is to watch them carefully. I now close the
water supply valve at the end of each day. The last such
failure cost me just under $100.

good product
best hose end timer I could find but needs to be stored for winter

Programming the timer
Programming instructions are a little vague - suggest enlarging them on your printer if possible. I thought my system was "off" when it was not - only found that when I had to replace a weak battery and reprogram. I would have rated it a 5 but for the programming. Very positive shut off and on, no leakage, seems to get reasonable battery usage. Overall a good product for the price.

Great timer
Very easy to set up and change settings. I bought it to keep my plants alive while I was out of town. It was used to run a rainbird sprinkler and it worked well.
I would definitely recommend this timer.

Easy to setup. Needed a new line and wasn't convenient to get to my centralized system for a new valve. Device works exactly as described and easy to program. saved my wife's potted plants while on vacation.

What kind of water switch is it-

Ball valve or diaphram?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is a diaphram, however mine quit working. Itried to contact Sprinkler Warehouse to get a replacement. I was unable to contact Sprinkler Warehouse by phone call. I had to buy another timer to replace the Dig Timer that I purchased from them. The Dig timer has a 3 year warranty. I hope this helps you in your decision to purchase this timer. Gina G.
What does blinking battery indicator mean ?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: From the product owners manual: "A blinking battery icon appears on the display when the batteries are low. At this point, the battery still contains a limited amount of energy for valve operation, however the battery should be
replaced promptly. If the battery is not replaced, it will then suspend the program."
does there have to be a certain amount of flow for this to work? will it turn off if you have very few emitters? I am inquiring about the DiG b09d
Victor Z on Jun 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm just guessing, based on using this item for quite awhile, though I don't have a line with very few emitters. But it seems that the timer will open and close the valve for water flow based on the time schedule, not based on how much water is flowing through. A couple of times our faucet has been turned off by mistake, and the timer still did its thing correctly, even though no water was going through at all.
IS THE LCD DISPLAY HARD TO READ IN THE DAYLIGHT?
A shopper on Apr 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not half as hard to read as the instructions!...They were T.I.N.Y.! (Kind of half-joking there, sorry.) But the instruction booklet did have small print. (Keep the booklet because you may need to reference it if you wish to change settings. Not that it is difficult, but you find you don't change it often...so, nearing the end of the season, when you perhaps need to taper off or add watering...you may wonder where the booklet went...possibly out with the packaging as in my case ...big mistake.
To answer your question...the unit PIVOTS on the coupling. This can be helpful to reading the display. Sometimes, if the sun is in just the right position, it reflects off the sight glass and back to your eyes...when this happens, you cannot read the display. However...all you need to do is step a little to one side and roll the unit towards you to read it just fine. The display itself is clearly readable...similar to a casio digital watch I guess is the best way to describe it. If you can read a digital watch on your wrist...you should be able to read this display with no problem at all.
I have been extremely happy with this unit....seriously....very dependable. My battery lasted throughout the year, and this year, I will change it out...just to not have the worry....but I could possibly continue using the same battery. The unit has been reliable, and fairly robust. Clearly it is plastic...and as with all plastic parts, you want to not overtighten...or use tools to tighten....and with the gaskets provided, it is leak-free and positive valve action on and off.
Good luck!
Do you have a battery powered, hose end timer that has the capability to control multiple zones? I have to use an outside faucet for watering my lawn and do so by switching the hose to different sprinklers. I would like to be able to connect different hoses to one timer and have each zone watered automatically when we are away. Is this possible? Thank you for your help.
Steve S on Feb 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Steve,
The item that I purchased allows you to water one station, at multiple times for multiple lengths of time.
If I read your question correctly, you want to have two zones watered. You could water both zones from one timer...if you purchase a "Y" connector to branch two hoses off the end of the timer. However, this would clearly water both zones, at the same times for the same chosen duration.
If you needed separate watering times for each zone, then you would have to place the "Y connector" before the timers...and place one timer on each branch of the Y, and then connect each zone to a separate timer.
I am not aware of a timer that waters separate zones from one timer...there may be one out there, but I'm not familiar with it. I'm sure you have considered this option. Clearly you would have to look at your supply requirement and find out if the volume /pressure of your two zones would be satisfied through the single point timer, or if you need to split them, in order to provide sufficient volume/pressure to each.
I purchased the DIG BO9D providing four start times per day, which allowed different watering times, and different days of watering (or all days)....lots of options, and up to 6.3 gallons per minute. I have used it for a complete season, and it is reliable, consistent and the timer was within a few seconds after months of use. All on a single 9Volt battery. Completely waterproof....I like it. I'm watering two separate areas simultaneously..by branching off below the timer...and have had good results. Hope this helps.
No water going thru unit when turned ON?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I several of these and have not experienced this problem. Can you hear the unit opening the valve when you turn it on manually? (Push the hand with the finger pointing) If so, something must be plugging the line through the valve. Take it off the hose bib and look through the unit when you push the manual control button and see if you can see through the valve when it is open. Also, be sure the battery is good. These valves seem to go through 9 volts at a frightnening rate. The digital screen may show items, but there may not be enough power to open the valve. Be sure all supply valves are on leading to this valve. Beyond that, I can't offer anything.
I'm confused with the manual operation. The directions under control buttons say to select the plus button to turn it on. Then, under E-Manual operation it says to select the minus.Do I select the plus or minus button to turn this on manually?
mary anne c on May 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't use either of those. I use the "On" button to start and the "Off" button to stop the water for manual operation.
how do I program my device to only run for 1 minute for the 4 stages? I use it to keep my chickens cool in the Arizona Heat.
Susan K on Jul 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Fairly simple.
Install battery.
Set the duration time to one minute.
Set each of the 4 start times you want the timer to begin.
Make certain all days of the week are,selected.
Set the current time.
Turn on the water....you're good to go.

The control buttons say to push on for instant watering. Then under manual operations it says to push off to instantly water. This is confusing. Do I push on or off for instant watering?
