Hose timer question

Posted by smurfsdad Z5 Illinois (My Page) on

Hi folks. I'm going to be watering my lawn using a National Walking Sprinkler. What I need is a timer to turn the water on early in the morning, (like 4:00), and do NOT shut it off. I'll turn it off when I get up. The water needs to be on from about 4:00 to 9:00 and any timers that I've seen only allow for up to 240 minutes before it shuts off. Can anyone steer me in the right direction?
Thank you, Smurfsdad

Not sure why you can't have the water stop then restart. Lots of timers have multiple cycles per day. Set the cycle for the max time then have the next cycle start when the first ends...repeat as needed. I used to use Gilmour double electronic (8 cycles/day). I had a different type of hose walker but this is what I did.
