INSTALLATION - How to install the TEMPO HYBRID. (1) The spout of the tap should have a 3/4" threaded male
connector, if not, use an adapter. Screw the screw collar of the 3/4” female fitting onto the tap. Warning: only
tighten the ring nut by hand and not with tools (ex. pliers). (2) Connect the watering line to the quick-click or
threaded connector using the appropriate fittings.

INSTALLATION - Sostituzione batteria. To operate, the water timer uses mainly solar energy. To turn on the
backlit display or when there is not enough solar energy (for example, after a few days of rain), the back-up AA
1.5 V (LR6) Alkaline battery will automatically be used to ensure correct operation of the water timer.
The “sun” symbol
on the display:
- if this symbol flashes, it indicates there is not enough light (therefore the water timer will be battery operated)
- if this symbol remains active, it indicates that there is sufficient light (therefore the water timer will operate on
solar energy).
If the battery used is new and the water timer is installed correctly, he life cycle of the battery will be approximately 4 years (or until the expiry date if this is less than 4 years).
The life cycle of the battery therefore depends on:
- environmental conditions (number of sunny/rainy days);
- where the water timer is installed;
- how often the backlit function is used.
The water timer is protected against reverse polarity of the battery and automatically checks the battery level.

INSTALLATION - Battery replacement. When the battery is flat:
- if any key is pressed (for example, display back lighting), programming is suspended. To restore programming,
replace the battery;
- if NO key is pressed, programming is in any case carried out (only if there is enough sunlight (“sun” symbol
permanently activated).
To fit or replace the batteries, proceed as follows: (1) Fully press the side key () and simultaneously detach the
front part of the water timer (2). Remove the flat batteries, if in place. (3) Fit the new battery in the support
observing the correct polarity. Refit the water timer by joining the two parts until you hear the "click" of the
coupling of the side key.

USE WITH RAIN SENSOR. It is possible to connect the water timer to a wire rain sensor (Rain Sensor code 90915)
or a radio-frequency rain sensor (Rain Sensor RF code 90831 + Rain Sensor RF interface code 8480).
The sensor informs the water timer when the rain water which has collected inside the sensor exceeds 5 mm
(rain status) and when this water has evaporated (normal operating status). The water timer automatically
suspends watering activities while it is raining and signals sensor intervention on the display.
The Rain Sensor must be connected to the designated electrical contacts on the inner side of the programming
module after the jumper has been removed from the contacts(1).
(2)RAIN SENSOR RF: install the Rain Sensor RF interface by inserting the wire aerial into the designated rings.
(3)WIRE RAIN SENSOR: connect the sensor connector. Make sure that the bipolar cable enters through the
cable passage in the lower part of the water timer.
NOTA: If the Rain Sensor is not used, the jumper must remain installed on the contacts.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE. Cleaning the water timer. Clean the water timer externally when necessary
using a soft cloth dampened slightly with water or a specific detergent: follow the instructions provided by the
detergent manufacturer. Regularly check that the photovoltaic cells are clean and free of dust. Clean them using
a soft cloth dampened slightly with water or a specific detergent for glass/windows.
Do not use abrasive instruments or detergents or highly acidic detergents to clean the water timer and the photovoltaic cells.
During winter and/or when not in use, always remove the battery (1-2) and store the water timer in a dry place
