Battery water timers typically attach directly to a standard garden tap, the ideal place to control your watering system. The batteries for a water timer normally last about 9 months, which is plenty long enough to last an entire season. At the beginning of each new season, pop in a fresh set of batteries, and you'll be able to forget about it for the rest of the year. Generally, you would programme a water timer to turn on once or twice a day, once in the morning or once in the evening, or both.
In our opinion, the Claber water timers are superb and made to a high standard. Claber water timers are especially popular among professionals due to their quality, reliability, ease of use, versatility, water-saving features and compatibility with various irrigation systems.
Still, the Hozelock water timers are brilliant value for money, offering lots of functionality for an excellent price. Hozelock water timers can also be used with a water butt as they use a motorised ball valve instead of a latching solenoid valve.
Let's not forget Gardena water timers! These are a premium option, but don't let that put you off. They have tons of functionality and being a German company, their products are manufactured with exceptional precision.
If you have a complex irrigation system with multiple zones, such as a pop-up sprinkler system, a mains-powered irrigation controller and 24v solenoid valves can simplify your garden irrigation system. The controller acts as the 'brain' of the system, sending signals to the solenoid valves to open and close at specified times. This setup is ideal for commercial sites or pop-up sprinkler systems in residential or light commercial settings. Control cable is used to connect the irrigation controller to the valves, allowing flexible placement up to 100 metres away.
