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.

THIS TIMER WAS NOT DESIGNED TO BE USER FRIENDLY the section on the desplay HOW OFTEN does not allow you to skip days most timers have the ability to skip days of the week to be water wise this only give the abality to run from 1 to 15 days NOT HAPPY JAN


Hi Allan, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Sorry to hear you are disappointed with the functions on the Timer. Unfortunately, with this model you are unable to skip days and this is not something we specify anywhere on the product page/manual. We have been testing another Timer for a while now which will allow you to water on specific days - should the testing continue to go well, this will be launched within our range. Therefore, keep an eye out for this in the future. Kind regards, The Hoselink Team

tap connection

At an old age I had trouble ******** to the tap one of the timers worked perfectly but I could not get another one tight enough to stop water from escaping. Maybe two slots to allow a spanner to grip would elevate this issue. Some timers have a manual override that allows use without setting a time.


Hi Greg, thank you for your feedback. We will pass your comments onto our products team for review, hopefully this is something we can incorporate with our next model of Tap Timer. Regarding the manual watering, you certainly can do this. Simply click the manual button, select how long you want to water for (using the + and - buttons), then click setup/ok and you can water as you please. To stop the manual watering, simply hit the manual button again and it will shut off. Kind regards, The Hoselink Team

Something is wrong

Setting Does notsinc the time right after turning off for a day


Hi Michael, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Unfortunately, if the timer ran out of charge then it will revert back to default settings and require to be set up again which also happens when replacing the batteries. Definitely something we can look into adjusting, we will discuss with the manufacturer. Kind regards, The Hoselink Team
