Hi

I have been using this Netro Pixie for one and half month. It is actually my second Pixie. The first one arrived broken as the valve was not opening properly for watering, I could hear a "hiisss" sound like air spraying.


The second pixie arrived and I have used it for one and half month, very reliable and I love the fact that it has the photovoltaic cell.


Yet, yesterday I uninstalled it as I do not need it anymore till next spring and... in spite of opening the valve and turning it upside down to empty it, I could still hear noice of water inside the device. I opened the battery compartment and... there was water inside... lots of water... actually as soon as I turned it upside down and shaken it, it went for a reboot.


How is it possible that there was water inside??? I have been using watering timers for fifteen years from brands like Gardenia and never ever had this issue. Isn't it supposed to be a sealed device?


I am sure it won't work next spring...


Anybody else has had this issue?


Thanks
