Gilmour 1-Dial Dual Outlet Hose Faucet Watering Timer 1
This Gilmour electronic timer is easy to use and has a large easy-to-read LCD screen. This timer can automatically turn on and off water to both outlets one at a time or both at the same time. It is great for people who want to set their sprinklers up and then not have to worry about turning them on and off everyday.

First the Good:
1) timer has a battery indicator on the screen
2) turns water on and off consistently (I have had the orbit timer fail to turn off several times despite having a full battery)
3) has very large easy to read buttons
4) automatically closes the water valve before the battery dies
1) cheap plastic construction, threads will strip easily. (this applies to the Orbit timer as well)
2) VERY POOR WATER PRESSURE OUTPUT- this is the reason for my low rating. I have connected both the Orbit Single Outlet Programmable Hose Faucet Timer and Gilmour Single Outlet Electronic Water Timer to the same outdoor faucet. The Orbit time can deliver full pressure to 2 hoses simultaneously. The Gilmore timer delivers about 75% water pressure to a single hose, when I connect two hoses to the Gilmore timer they drip slowly. This means the single 4ft by 4ft flower bed running on the Gilmore timer has to be watered for 15 minutes twice a day. The two 4ftx4ft vegetable beds I have running on the Orbit timer receive an almost identical amount of water in 8 mins twice a day.
The low water pressure from the Gilmour timer makes it incredibly ineffective in my opinion. I would need two Gilmour timers to deliver the same amount of water as the orbit timer. If you only need to deliver a small amount of water, I would recommend the Gilmore timer as it is more reliable. That being said, I will not purchase this product ever again.
1. Water flow seems to be fine. It appears that Gilmour has removed the restrictor that is shown in another review. The hole is now about the size of my little finger. Not gigantic but it runs all my sprinklers just fine. The way I use them is one side at a time so not sure how the flow would be if you were using both sides at once, but it appears it'd be fine.
2. The unit "feels" well made. We'll see as time progresses. I have them attached using those short 6 inch kink restrictor hoses. My thinking was that this would help relieve any stress at the point it connects to faucet.
3. Unit was very easy and quick to program. Just follow the directions. Took me longer to synch the time on all three than it did to actually program them.
4. Instructions say not for use with Y connectors. However, I have all of mine on large Y connectors and they seem to work just fine.
5. So far, no leaking.
I don't think these are as bad as some people say they are, my opinion only. However, I have only had them a couple of days, but, so far, they do exactly what I wanted them to do. I gave them a 4-rating ONLY because I haven't had them long enough to be totally sold on them. Again, we'll see how they perform over time. So far so good though.
The dual hose feature is nice, having different times set up for each line is handy. Running hoses across a half acre of grass is a pain but being able to set up two lines and have the timing staggered to water in the morning is very useful. All in all the product works, but could be better on performance and has questionable build quality. Worth it for the price? Only time will tell.
