Default Need help with a new timer

Hi guys.

Just found this site and have a question.

I have a Verti -gro setup outside and need a good water proof outdoor timer
for my setup.

I ran power out to my garden a few days ago now ready for the timer install
the one that came with my Verti -gro is this one Intermatic Timers - Consumer Outdoor Timers - Digital Timers - HB88RC

It has only lasted just one summer and has took a dive.
So I would like to get a better one that will for a hold up for a long time.

Also we water about 4 times a day for about 5 min each time.
Here's how we water if that has to do in picking a new timer.

Timer on 6:00 am to 6:05 am
off till 10:00 am back on for 5 min.

Back on at 2:00 pm for 5 min.

Then back on at 6:00 pm for 5 min.

Here's a few pic's from out garden last year.

Thanks for any info back.

great setup, thanks for posting the pictures. I would go with a standard sprinkler pump timer. Intermatic makes them as well, should last for years.
