There are many portable timers available, usually battery operated. We use one and it is easy to operate. Some are easier to use than others, so try it out before relying on it. One we were given several years ago was hard to figure out.

Consider just replacing the whole valve (not the fixture) after getting 8 years of service out of it. You should be able to buy a replacement at a good plumbing supply house. It seems to me that these 'new' style valves don't have the staying power
