It was easy to set up and worked great for about 6 ...
It was easy to set up and worked great for about 6 months but then it started leaking. And, in spite of my attempts at communicating with the company, they are not even responding to my request for warranty refund/replacement. So, I'd say, look at another company. I mean, it's one thing to have a defective product, that happens with every company. But it's another thing to blow off a customer who is pointing out an issue with your product.
Great, while it lasted
Worked great for a little more than six months. Now it has a constant drip, no matter what I set the timer to. I contacted the seller and will update my review if they respond.Update: I emailed the manufacturer and they responded promptly. After sending photos for proof, they said they would send a replacement. However, it's been over two months and it hasn't arrived. They have also stopped answering my emails.
Never worry about watering issues again!!
This product really works! I read ALOT of reviews before deciding on this product. I have 9 planter grow boxes and used 19 of the drippers (some containers had 1, 2, or 3 drippers per). Set up took longer than directions said (no big deal), but was sooooo easy! (Tip : definitely leave the tubing out in the sun to soften). Also, it's MUCH easier to assemble with fewer errors if you arrange your containers beforehand. DO NOT start randomly cutting tubing until you know your layout. The timer works great (Another tip : I read it may not hold up well in rainy weather, so I cut a ziploc baggy to fit around it and clipped it shut) and the manual watering and rain delay capabilities are awesome. I don't have any idea if my water source has a high or low psi, so I just proactively purchased the Raindrip psi regulator (all my drippers drip and drip consistently with it attached to the timer) so you may wanna consider that purchase too (it leaks a little, but the package clearly states it may or may not leak LOL) I am by no means an expert, but I read enough sh*t about drip irrigation for containers that I will definitely recommend it and if for some reason it fails, I would have no issues buying again because of good price and ease of install (all you need is scissors!!) P.S. I posted 2 pics of my setup for visuals.
Great once I figured out it needed a regulator
This watering system was great once I figured out that I needed a pressure regulator. Raindrip mentions the necessity for a pressure regulator with some of their other systems but not with this one.I was having problems with the drip emitters letting out almost no water at all and the "T" connectors leaking. I thought the emitters were bad or clogged, so I tried swapping them out to no avail. Finally after about a week of very little water reaching my plants, I happened to pop one of the emitters off of its tube while the system was running. Instantly, all of the other emitters started dripping away! The pressure had been too high for the emitters to operate correctly. That's right: paradoxically, having the water pressure too *high* will result in flow out of the drippers that is too *low*.I ran over to the hardware store, got a 25 psi water pressure regulator, and put it on the outlet side of the timer. Now all of my dripper emitters work wonderfully.The timer works great. No complaints about that.So, minus one star for not mentioning anywhere that a water pressure regulator is necessary.
Don't expect more than a few months of usefullness...
Install easy enough except when trying to get a watertight connection at fittings . Very hard to do using just hands. Since its all plastic didn't want to use pliers. Used from August, 2016 to November, 2016 to water 5 potted plants and worked ok. Put timer and tubing away for winter, then put back into use in March, 2017 after rains over. Worked at first then noticed leaks in two junctions where tubing went into pots. The fittings were tight but continued to drip.The Big Problem: Timer control stopped working, even after replacing batteries (originals were still good) and following instructions exactly. Tried everything to no avail. System will only work if timer used manually, which of course, negates the usefulness of a timer. So, total time the timer worked was approximately 5 months. Not a good return for the money and labor of installing drip watering. I'm back to watering my potted plants manually...UPDATE:Tried to reach Raindrip... hung up after 36 minutes of recorded message saying basically, "call someone who cares." Changed raring to one star...
I installed the kit following the instructions, but once I finished the installation, I realized that the timer was defective - the water flow would never stop.I called Raindrip's customers support and after some troubleshooting they confirmed that the timer is defective.The technician mentioned that they are having a lot of quality issues with products sold on Bolo and he suggested to buy a new unit at Lowe's or Home Depot, which I found funny. Why should the quality on Bolo be different than Lowes or Home Depot? Why don't the simply do a better quality control?I will have to unmount the hose and return it. A lot of wasted time.
all the plants were thriving and beautiful. This also frees me up from watering them ...
I installed the Raindrip system before we left for our cabin for two weeks. Instead of relying on friends or family to water our hanging and potted plant on our deck I decided to try this system. It works perfectly. I set it for 30 minutes each day in the morning. When we got back from our cabin, to my relief, all the plants were thriving and beautiful. This also frees me up from watering them myself everyday. I also bought the water pressure regulator which maintains a 25psi, which was advised in a youtube video. That too was most helpful. For the record, I am an real customer and this is not an advertisement from Raindrip. Unlike so many other things in this world, this item does what it says it will. I'm very pleased.
