FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Nelson 2 in 1 Pre-Set Water Timer 56606 and 56607 Useless Warranty

Update:  I first reviewed the 56606 and after two years it died.  In 2016 I got two more of the 56607 model and one of them died in 6 months.  I have tried to get warranty support to no avail. 

I would strongly AGAINST advise buying one of these timers due to the companies dis-interest in customer support. 

I like my flowers but sometimes when I travel they are neglected.  I hate to bug the neighbor kid or one of my own grown kids to come and water my flowers.   I found this on Amazon and it did the trick. 

From the Amazon product description. 
  • 18 pre-set watering selections plus auto on/off
  • Digital LCD time display
  • Superior ease of use, no programming required
  • Metal ergo swivel coupling
  • Reliable diaphragm design for long battery life, requires 2 AA batteries(not included)
I am never sure how many stars to give a product. This time did exactly what I wanted. It was easy to bypass when I needed the hose and it kept my plants hydrated when I was out of town. It does not feel beefy so I treated it with care and it did exactly what I wanted. I recommend the product.  It was $24.99 at Amazon.

Flowers survived travel and grandchildren (no timer needed for kid)
If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
