The Toro TMC-212 irrigation timer keeps your sprinkler system on a consistent watering schedule. The timer is connected to valves and sprinklers and, when activated, the sprinklers rise up and water your lawn and garden. The control panel features a dial, a program switch, navigation buttons and a liquid crystal display. After the TMC-212 is installed, you might have questions about how to program it.

Press the “On” button to designate Sunday as a watering day or press “Off” to take Sunday off of the schedule. After “On” or “Off” is pressed, the next day, Monday, will flash. Repeat the process until all days are programmed and twist the dial to “Run.”
