A rep gave me one of them at a show. Still sitting in the shed.
I prefer the Rainbird. All the different brands are easy to use for the homeowner.
The installer sounds like an idiot. I would have him put in his 'overkill' product.
That way if it breaks, he will come out and take care of it.
It sounds like he doesn't know what he is doing and hopes you buy the timer so when it breaks and you call him for help, he will tell you he cannot fix it because you bought the timer. Furthermore, it he does decide to fix it, I am sure he will charge you.
I have seen more morons in the irrigation business than ever before. I think guys get into it because it pays better than mowing, but they are trained and knowledgeable like they should be.
Try it, Mikey! You'll like it!
Does Hunter still only have a two year warranty on most residential products?
Stay away from ID. We used ID last year, valves, controllers and nozzles and EACH PRODUCT SUCKED!!!! The controllers were the worst IMO, I changed out 7 of them this year alone from last years installs.
My vote is a RB Modular. Easy to use, great reliability and one of the best on the market for resi's IMO. I am not a fan of Hunter products, except their nozzles.
Even though we carry ALOT of Toro products, DO NOT get a TMC 212. First they had an issue with them not operating pump starts. They now fixed that issue (so says our supplier) but Toro does not have good quality in the resi area.
The new MC clocks suck bad since the buy out. replaced an MC 42e 3 times. First firmware issues, then key pad issues, then pissed off contractor issues
