I've had a Rainbird 12-station system in my garden for ten years and have been
very happy with it.  I can set it to water each of my twelve raised beds
individually as needed or not at all.  The type of head you put on your
irrigation risers is important to control the precise area you target.

HI all,


what was said,

 I have a few tender species growing in containers on the deck, but the
repotting, and especially the watering, of container grown plants takes so much

For me manually watering just isnt gonna happen. I have about 95% of my things
set up for automatic watering but all I have are those cheap timers that wally
world carries. They are only set for 15 min increments and that either waters
too much or not enough.


Has anyone used those timers from Rainbird and if so do they last more than a
season? I have seen where some of their timers can run up to 9 or so different
watering lines. They are a bit expensive but if they are worth it I will install
a system.
