Faucet timer

For folks who forget the dribbling hose..

Simple device: a flowmeter that can be set to turn off that hose you set to dribbling on the back forty an hour ago, then forgot about, after x gallons have passed thru it. A simple timer would probably work as well; if it's good enough for automatic sprinklers it oughtta be adaptable to a faucet too. Anything to prevent coming home after work to a drenched backyard is a plus!

There are plenty of these available if you only want to control your outdoor spigots. [jurist, Jun 30 2010]

       I want something simpler that doesn't require programming and a schedule. What's needed is a plain vanilla widget attached to the faucet, with ONE button on it. It would let water flow for oh, say, 10 minutes, then cut off the flow. Has anyone go a link one of these??

       My link is about as close as you're going to get, one control, twist to set time.   

       Widely known to exist.
