Did not work
"The item did not work out of the box. Having returned the same and given the other reviews I asked for a refund rather than a replacement."

Excellent value for money
"Previously owned Hozelock which failed with corroded contacts. This Verve unit has so far after 2 years worked perfectly and is very easy to program. My only issue is the tiny LCD screen and text. Very difficult to read in anything but good direct sunlight."

Rubbish product
"Purchased May 2012,.Removed for safe storage (in house) end of Sept, before frosts. Removed batteries etc, drained out water from inlet/outlet. Just ready to use this year, went to install bateries, compartment full of black pungent water, battery terminals rotted away, what a mess! As an ex-electrical engineer, opened up casing to find p.c board eaten away, wires eaten away and many electronic components corroded off the p.c. board. Leakage from crack in main through pipe, obviously during four months of use last year.
Quality disgusting! would never buy anything with "Verve" name to it again. If I had the receipt I would be knocking on somebodies door for my money back!

Another missing feature. No overirde to allow the tap to stay open for hose watering."

Seals failed after 1 summer
"Bought in 2011, the timer worked well for that summer and was put away and stored in a frost-free location for the winter.
Re-installed it in May 2012 with new batteries as instructed in the booklet. It worked for 5 minutes while I set up the drippers, then failed catastrophically. Water sprayed gently out of the centre seams while the LED timer window filled with water. It then stopped functioning."
