water timer battery operated

HELP i have just install watering system to my garden , i used 10 shrub nozzles from RAIN BIRD but I got the single outlet orbit timer, When i connect my system directly to the faucet it works great BUT when using the timer the flow is cut down, and my psi are 60 and the orbit is supposed to hold until 100 psi, I need a timer that doesn't cut away my flow
and I have read about lots of timers, and I end Up on the single outlet claber timer

You are not supposed to connect a sprinkler system directly to a faucet. You must include backflow protection in the system plumbing. On flat ground, this is most easily accomplished by using an antisyphon control valve that is a foot higher in elevation than the highest sprinkler head. A standard controller will operate that valve.

(the item you bought is intended to control a single hose-end sprinkler)
