I'm not sure where to start with my question...

Hi everyone,

I have three manual valves around my front yard to operate the underground sprinkers - which I used that rod with the u-shaped end to turn them off and on. My question is this: is there some sort of mechanical piece with a built in timer that I can attach to the valve to automate the watering? Is there something like that I could buy, where it turns the valves on and off manually, on a timer?

I don't really have any experience in plumbing - although I'm learning new things everyday - so I don't know if I could replace the valves and/or add an automated system. Any help or guidance would be most appreciated.

Thanks so much in advance.
