How to set specific dates to water with my T1030D? I don't need daily frequency for cool weather time. There is fequency dates to chooce on T1030, but not with T1030D.

1) Sept 2011.
If you have a T1030D timer instruction manual, then that would be helpful for many people.
Scan manual into .jpg format (file format) and then post images on Flickr.
Add a comment with link to those images so expert can access the information.

2) Currently the only instruction manual is the following, where you can also send information saying what your instruction manual says:

3) That being said:
Let me add some guessing, and then you can add a comment with what you observe.
Between us we might be able to work out a solution.

4) I don't think you can set specific dates on either T1030 or T1030D
It appears the T1030D is a weekly timer, just like T1030.
The word 'date' does not appear in T1030 manual except 'date of purchase.'

5) T1030D: each day of the 7-day week is broken into hour 1 through 24.
Each day can have between 1 to 3 settings. I think this is frequency.
You can set the watering run-time from 1 to 120 minutes for each set time.

After winter storage and frost interference my gardena water control T1030 plus seems to misbehave. There is a small hole on the side of the filter (which I haven't noticed before) through which a strong...

If you leave water inside plastic timer or plastic hose parts, and water freezes during winter, then the plastic will split as frozen water expands.
Buy new water control.

Open link below for some Gardena manuals including T1030

By the way, if they made the same parts out of brass or copper, the brass and copper would expand instead of crack during a freeze, but the internal valves would be ruined anyway.
So plastic is a good material, just bring these things indoors or drain the water for winter storage.

My Gardena T 1030 D water timer came with instructions in nine East European languages but I can only read English

1) I might have that manual in English:

2) If manual above doesn't work, I also used Google translate to translate Gardena manual; from Italian and German if I recall:

You can enter whole sentences into google translate, and make sense of 70-80%.
I sometimes answer questions in Spanish at fixya using the translator. So we're not helpless any more.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, fixya expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer.

I have a Gardena water timer with Spanish instructions and I don't understand it model :1830-20 can you help please.

Gardina 1830-20 is also known as T1030
Click link to make sure this is your product.

1) I found a Gardena T1030 manual
I hope this is correct manual >> instructions Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} seem easy

2) The Gardena website ... no instructions, instead you go to service department and open glossy sales brochures

3) Whereas Melnor water products offers pdf instructions up front to help customers

4) Google translate can help sometimes
