I’m going on vacation from Friday night to Wednesday. My ducks live in a 6x6 box outside. I just bought an orbit hose timer and I have a bucket of food with a hole so that they will always have food. I have someone coming by every other day to check on them. Am I set for vacation? Does anyone have experience with the orbit hose timer on how long it lasts battery wise?

Were you able to test is out before you leave? I haven't heard of a hose timer, except for gardening, is it the same? They also make float waterers you can hook up to a hose and it keeps the water filled.

Yep. I got it a few days ago. I checked and it worked. They never have drained the water they just get it really dirty so I set it to run for 3 minutes and it drains out most of the dirty water
