In particular, I want a timer that is durable. My last one burst and leaked in one month.

I have two of these, for my front and rear yard drip systems. Both have been reliable for several years now, I just change batteries in spring. Also very easy to set. The drip section of the home centers will have an adapter for the 1/2" or 1/4" tubing.
