Many plant enthusiasts who use drip irrigation and micro irrigation in their landscapes and gardens know that one of the best ways to water plants with just the right amount of water is to use an electronic timer. Mister Landscaper has had various types of electronic timers over the years - each one adding more features as technology improved.
We are happy to announce that we have just added a new automatic water timer (Product Number: MLWT-TIMER). This timer comes fully loaded with tons of great features, which makes it much better than our previous model.
Just for comparison's sake, we listed some of the differences between our new timer and our old one so you can see for yourself if an upgrade would be worth it.
Our new timer can be set to the nearest minute, versus the old one, which was to the nearest hour.
Our new timer has a run time of 1 to 240 minutes, while the old timer could only run from 1 to 99 minutes.
Our new timer has 11 different watering cycles to choose from. The old timer had only 8 cycle choices.
Our awesome new timer has a manual run time of 5 minutes up to 240 minutes. Compare this to the old timer which only had a 30-minute option.
The new Mister Landscaper timer takes 2 AA batteries instead of the hard-to-find 9-volt blocks.
With the new timer, it is much easier to change the battery, with no screws to undo - unlike the older one in which two screws had to be removed.
One of the neatest features in the new timer is a rain delay setting. This allows you to delay 1, 2, or 3 days before a run cycle. The old timer did not have this feature at all, so it is a great add-on for sure.
All of the new features make this new electronic timer a definite plus in our drip irrigation and micro irrigation product line. It allows customers to set their watering times for their landscapes and gardens, then go about their lives, knowing that their gardens will get just the right amount of water they needs. The avid gardener could even go on a vacation and not have to get a garden sitter. Nice.
