Hi, the problem is there is not enough pressure comming from the water. You should put more water at a time into the sprinker, then the clip will work just right.

Dear Specialkfras, The same thing happened with our Gardena Sprinkler. It means the little clip at the bottom is faulty and you just have to return it to the manufacturer and get a new one. You are not doing anything wrong and there is no instruction manual in any of the boxes. Good luck.

Need operating instructions

Go to Orbits web site and download instructions. Or since you have the least expensive timer known to man simply buy another one for $20.00 then you will have instructions and a spare timer. You will need it trust me.

Haste to stop waste!

Too often we let our irrigation systems go on without really making sure that the amount of water, the pressure, the radius and other settings are what our lawn or landscape needs.
This causes not only a great waste of water and money but it may also ruin our flowers and plants.
Therefore here are a few tips to transform a wasteful sprinkler irrigation into the effective system it should be, and to keep a healthy landscape, lawn or garden.

1. When to water.
Watering your lawn and landscape should be differentiated according to seasons.
During warm months (May to October) irrigation should be activated between midnight and sunrise, so to minimize the water that evaporates.
While during winter, plants and lawns should be watered during the warmer part of the day to prevent water from freezing on the landscape.

2. Don't drown your plants.
Keep an eye on your lawn while the sprinklers are on and monitor when the water starts dripping off the sides. This way you will know how long your sprinklers should be left active for, so that the plants may absorb the water without being overwhelmed.

3. Avoid daily, light watering.

4. When watering plants with deep roots, water well and deep, until about half inch deeper than the deepest roots, in order to encourage downward growth.

5. When watering on a slope do it gradually. Run your sprinklers every 3 hours circa and aerate to increase infiltration.

6. Check your sprinkler's efficiency once a month.
Check for damaged, leaking, clogged or stuck sprinkler heads and for constantly soaked patches of grass or soil to detect leakage.
Make sure that the water is sprayed all over the area and that new additions or plants that grew higher and larger don't block the spray pattern.

7. In seasons in which the temperature reaches 30/32 degrees Celsius remember to run your sprinklers 5 to 10 minutes in the afternoon to cool the area. It reduces the symptoms of summer patch disease.

8. Create water zones by putting together the plants that have similar water needs, and water them accordingly

9. Be careful when mowing. If your sprinkle heads don't retract underground after irrigation, apply small flags on them so that while mowing you see them better and avoid damaging them.

$51 for a $12 sprinkler, that has a $8 water timer that you can buy separately at local box store?
Clean out the filter washer where water hose connects. Soak the sprinkler in white vinegar. Otherwise the unit appears to manufactured so that disassembly and part replacement is not possible... this is typical of all plastic water timers.
Don't buy gardena products since they have no online support, as found offered from companies like Orbit etc.
Always buy sprinkler timers and watering equipment at local store so returns are easy.
When buying online products that offer warranty, check who supports that warranty... because the seller usually offers 90 day exchange and nothing more... and then you have shipping costs to seller.
When buying online products, check if the manufacturer has website that offers support. If replacement parts are needed, ask who will sell those parts when needed a few yeaRs later. For example gardena site shows a link for parts but no parts are offered for sale, nor any parts sheets available, so there is no way to identify parts.
Never expect a plastic water timer to last very long.

How do i set timer on gardena t 1030 d with distibutor?

Question is not clear.
-Are you looking for a product manual? Or somebody to explain certain parts of manual?
Add a comment with specific question, and I will respond. Or take advantage of fixya live and expert speaks with you over phone while you program timer.

-If you want the timer to control different watering channels, then 1030D does not perform that function. The timer just turns one valve on-and-off.

-Open following links to identify timer and download manual, and see links to other water timer products for example Orbit timers and Intermatic sprinkler timers can control multiple water channels:

I just purchased a Vigoro zinc spike sprinkler . I want to set it to 360 degrees watering . The only instruction to do this is : Full circle : Left trip pin I've played with it a bit but have not hooked...

Lift completely up or down on the mechanism that allows for it to STOP against the setting pins. 360 is a full circle and if you can't spin the head all the way around, readjust the mechanism until it clears both the right and left stopping pins. Once you accomplish this and turn it on, you will have 2 options for traveling and return traveling. The trip lever can be moved to set that accordingly.

What do I set frequency? What does 8, 12, and 24 hr mean?

That means how far apart the watering cycles are. For instance, you may choose to have it turn on water for 1 hour (or whatever you like) every 8, 12 , or 24 hours. Hope this helps:)

An exact model number would help. I'm assuming you'r refering to a lawn sprinkler that you can set say to turn 180 degrees, and then reverse back to the beginning and start over. Most sprinklers have two adjustable tabs that determine where it stops. You move these around the dial to set the stop and return positions. Then the top part of the sprinkler that moves, has a tab that can be flipped down for fwd-rev operation, or left raised for 360 degree coverage.0282cdd.jpg
