Add more value, versatility and convenience to your automatic underground watering system with a Rain Bird SST Series Automatic Sprinkler Timer. Customize watering schedules tailored to your unique landscape needs, while dramatically conserving water and improving lawn and plant health. The Simple To Set Sprinkler Timer offers maximum versatility and efficient watering with water-conscious features like Automatic Rain Shut-off to stop operation during rain. It can even be easily linked to existing drip watering systems.

Why is this sprinkler timer so simple to use? Just dial each zone and see every setting clearly displayed. Because you set this timer by zones, you control the irrigation system exactly the way it is laid out. Other timers require setting two or more zones on the same watering program. That just wastes water and isn’t ideal for the plants. With this advanced timer, watering schedules can be fine-tuned for each lawn area as well as the flow rates of each sprinkler type.

What you can do with Simple To Set Timing Technology:

  • Help prevent runoff by setting popup sprays to water for shorter periods than impact sprinklers and rotors, which have lower flow rates.
  • Water your grass more frequently than shrubs, for
    best growing results.
  • Water slopes or clay soils in short intervals to allow
    water to soak in, avoiding runoff.
  • Irrigate full sun sections more often than shade areas.
  • Save water and get greener results!
