    Heads up. -
    Melnor Model 3015 Aqua-Timer (Home Depot availability).

    Got ours less than a month ago. Pretty nice packaging, outdoor LCD
    and all. -- and that's not so easy to do, as many of you probably
    already know..

    Said it would last 3 months on a single 9-volt alkaline battery.
    Lasted barely 3 weeks.

    Opened the gasketed battery compartment - device full of water!!
    Battery voltage read 0.812 volts. Now, can't find receipt, etc....
    I'm hoping we just got a dud, but you would think a device that
    purposely places water and electronics in the same space would be
    better engineered.

    Guess you can't judge a water timer by its membrane decal.

    Dare I even ask what you use to water the desert? :)
