Keith,

In ten years of use, including on my own family’s properties, I've never have had to replace this brand of timer. “Irritrol” makes this timer and I use their "RainDail" product line. A 9 zone indoor\outdoor timer runs around $138 for outdoor and $118 for indoor models.

I use this timer where I know heat or moisture will be a problem. Heat, at least in my opinion is the biggest killer of all electronic timers.
John

Sounds like a Ford vs. Chevy type argument. Oh well, I know what works for me and what doesn't.

I vote for Hunter valves and rotors(I20 preferred). I had been using Hunter pop-up sprays but have switched to Rainbird due to nozzle clogging issues that Rainbird seems to solve.

I like the Hunter ICC controller but recently had a failure that required replacement.
