Same problem. “Later”, not sure how much actually, I typically get a “finished watering” message. I can’t tell if it’s actually running a water cycle though, cause I’m not at the garden any longer by then to see it. For sure, the unit hooked to a standard garden hose never comes on, I never accomplish the manual water, and I walk away to get buckets.
If Orbit can’t fix this then these faucet units are of limited value.
