How do tap timers work?
Simple manual or mechanical tap timers provide users with simple irrigation control and management options. You can program or set up tap timers to start running for anything from 1 minute to several hours on any day of the week.
Even if the tap is left on, the tap timer’s internal valve regulates water flow and prevents water from flowing through the system when it’s not needed or programmed to do so.
How long do batteries last in tap timers?
Batteries typically last up to 6 months to 1 year before needing replacement, depending on how frequently and how long watering cycles are set.
It’s good practice to install brand-new, high-quality batteries at the beginning of each watering season.
Do water hose timers save water?
Using a water tap timer to irrigate your lawn or garden is a practical decision. With a water hose timer, the system automatically turns your sprinklers on and off, so you don’t have to do it manually or on-site. Timers also let you water your garden at optimal times, especially during hotter months, to limit evaporation and increase the amount of water left in your garden. With this kind of control over your irrigation system, you can modify the amount of water used every time and minimise your water bill.
