Product Info

Hoselink's Automatic Tap Timer - the one you've all been waiting for!

This is the perfect accessory for any irrigation or sprinkler system set up in your backyard. The Timer helps to conserve water and ensures you NEVER forget to turn your tap off again. 

It is easy to use and quick to set up with interval programming options. 


+ Large, clear LED display screen.

+ The timer has a manual on/off watering feature, which allows you to water manually in between your set schedule. 

+ Includes a manual rain delay function to save water if rain is forecast.

+ The LED screen will turn off when not in use to prolong the battery life. 

+ You can set the watering session to run for any time between 1 second and 300 minutes.

+ Watering frequency can be set from as little as every hour, up to 15 days. 


Insert 2 x AA batteries (not included) by opening up the cover on the back of the unit. Once inserted, press the cover down until flush with the timer casing to ensure a watertight seal.

The Timer comes with both a 3/4" and 1" tap thread to fit any standard Australian tap. Screw directly on to the garden tap and proceed to set up.

Set up

After the batteries are inserted into the timer unit, a default screen will appear. Press the ‘SETUP/OK’ button and configure timing using the ‘PLUS (+)’ and ‘MINUS (-)’ buttons. Then, once the correct times are entered, press the ‘SETUP/OK’ button to confirm and move on to the next setting.

To turn the timer off, press and hold the 'ESC/OFF' button for 3 seconds or until 'OFF' shows up on the screen. To reactivate, press and hold the 'ESC/OFF button again.


  • Check the battery indicator before going away on holiday. It is a good idea to put new batteries into the Timer in case the battery runs flat while you are away OR, alternatively, have someone available to check on the Timer while you are gone.

  • Do not submerge the Timer under water.

  • When expecting freezing temperatures, remove the Timer from the tap and store inside to prevent water from freezing inside the unit.

  • Check the included tap filter every so often to ensure no blockages occur. To do this, unscrew the Timer from the tap and remove the washer to clean the filter inside.

Outstanding product. I had a cheaper one (different brand) that lasted no time at all. The Hoselink auto tap timer is clearly a much better product. I bought two, one for the back garden, one for the front garden. Now I can go away on vacation and know that the gardens will be watered at the set times. Thanks Hoselink.

Automatic tap timer

A great product , I am very satisfied as is the case with all my hose link products. I recently purchased 2 x 30 metre Hoselink reels with a lot of extras for both my sons for Christmas and they are very happy also.

Timer Tap

Very positive. I would love to have one that allows me to program in several times of the day and also days of the week. That would be awesome. I know other brands make them, but I would be very happy with a Hoselink one.

It is OK but I tend to use manual rather than automatic. Rather cumbersome, most timers have a simple manual option.

I have three of these items. Two are working perfectly. The second Tap Timer is faulty. However it was replaced immediately after a phone call requesting assistance.
