You don't program each station. You only program one start time that begins the cycle that consists of the three stations.
Remove all start times but the first one and make that 5:45.
Set the station times to whatever you want, 12 minutes.
At 5:45, station 1 starts.
at 5:57, station 1 shuts off, station 2 starts.
at 6:09, station 2 shuts and station 3 starts.
at 6:21, station 3 shuts.

First thing to check is the power supply. Are the batteries fresh? Most likely you need to reprogram. There is likely a previous program that is causing the errant watering. Here is a good video on how to program.

How stop sprinklers from starting over


You only program the first zone to turn on at a specific time. The rest of the zones go in sequence.

Hunter pro C will not allow all zones to water.


The fact that you are getting no error message indicates that programming is not right, or there is electrical short between timer and sprinkler solenoid:

With all digital timers, it is important to clear memory before starting, and then double-check there are no conflicts in programming.
Page 22-23 of the manual has quick-check procedure for identifying shorts that would cause problems.
Check outlet with circuit analyzer to check for correct polarity and grounding.
Google search Hunter Pro C manual to download searchable pdf manual
Keep in mind also that digital timers are susceptible to line noise, and power surge. Simple power outage can disable digital timer. There are no replacement parts.
That's why I recommend good old fashion 14-day repeat-cycle mechanical sprinkler timer with fewer features, but replaceable parts.
For example T8845PV with 24Volt ac output

I have an aquamate pump and when i connect it to a continuous sprinkler it stops and starts contiuously


The pump is putting out too much water for the sprinkler.
You can raise the pump shut off pressure at the switch until it is higher than the pressure that the pump runs at with the sprinkler operating. You should have a surge tank connected to the system to give the pump time to balance with the sprinkler.
You can use more water with the sprinkler. This could mean adding another sprinkler or increasing the nozzle size of the existing sprinkler.

How do I install a T8845pv sprinkler timer. What do I attach to the two yellow wires


http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/t8845pv%20-%20english.ashx

The timer is used to power a low-voltage sprinkler solenoid valve.
A solenoid is an electrical switch that opens and closes a gas line or water line.

The yellow wires go to your sprinkler system solenoid valve.
The solenoid is the valve that turns water on-and-off.

The 120Volt electric cable that runs the timer connects to the Line and Neutral terminals.
Black to Line terminal, white to neutral terminal

The clock repeats each 24 hours.
Lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer

The skipper wheel has pins >> press pin down for each day you do not want watering
Rotate skipper wheel counterclockwise until current day lines up with 14 arrow

Put tripper pins on yellow dial
Each pin represents 12 minutes of watering
To water for 48 minutes, put in 4 consecutive pins
Put pins on wheel at the time you want watering to take place.
To water twice a day, put pins at two different times, and do not put any pins between those times.

Hunter sprinklers vs rainbow sprinklers


I work with both Hunter and Rainbird irrigation components. Both companies have good products. But, I prefer Hunter for the sprinkler heads and Rainbird for the controllers and valves.

Hunter PGP Sprinkler Problem


For a small price, it's worth it to replace it with another Hunter PGP. Don't settle for cheaper products as the PGP is the best in the industry, bar none.

Hunter sprinkler head adjusting...


I googled Hunter sprinkler heads and where to purchase them. In my area (the East bay, Tri-Valley) in Nothern California.

I went to Ewing Irrigation in Dublin, CA and found the Hunter sprinkler heads there. The man working the counter got two for me and he demonstrated how to change the head by unscrewing it from the base at or just below ground level by removing the old one and screwing in the new head. He also showed me how to adjust them with the spray pattern. You will need the little tool that comes with the sprayer head.

Making sure the center arrow is completely to the left and rotate the head to the right then back to left. They are set to a 180% spray pattern from the manufacturer. If you want a bigger pattern you turn the adjuster toward the ( + ) side and if you want less pattern you turn the adjuster to the ( - ) side. He showed me how to install the red sprayer inserts by simply pushing them in the cavity making sure the little u shaped indentation is pointing up to allow for the set screw to go through to adjust the spary.The spray varies in distance and amount of water being emitted from the head depending upon the insert used.

I was able to replace the Hunter head, adjust the spray and changed out the insert a few times until I found the one I liked. I used needle nose pliers to remove the initial spray insert that the man @ Ewing installed until I found the one that worked best.

I found using needle nose pliers makes it very easy to grasp the little inserts for replacing.
