How To Manually Run An Orbit Sprinkler Timer

Do you have an Orbit outdoor sprinkler timer/controller and want to run your sprinklers manually?  This video blog shows you how to do exactly that.  Here is the step-by-step guide to running a single station.

  1. Make sure the timer is on “auto” with the center dial

  2. Press the “enter/manual” button on the bottom left corner of the panel

  3. The screen will change to say “all”

  4. Then use the “arrow” key on the far right of the panel until screen reads the station you want to run

  5. Once you are on the station number you want to run, then use the “up arrow” button on the far right of the screen to add the run manual run time 

  6. Then wait a few seconds for the timer to automatically turn on to run that station.

  7. If you want to shut it off sooner you can hit the “clear” button on the far left side of the panel.

  8. You can use this process to run each valve manually
