Mechanical hose timer update

hose timer update
This mechanical hose timer does a good job at turning on and off.

The problem for us was how it decreased our already low water pressure and how that affected the drip irrigation we tried last year on the tomato plants.

Maybe try another brand or style. We use a cheap Orbit mechanical timer and never had any trouble with our drip hoses or impact sprinklers. The last one we bought lasted about 5-6 years. We just replaced it with the same brand and style a few weeks ago and so far it seems to function just as well as the last one. This is the one we've been using: http://www.lowes.com/pd/Orbit-Mechanical-Hose-Faucet-Timer/3686860
