Need to install the elbow connectors that you recently received? We have you covered! Follow the steps outlined below, and we will help you through the process.
Check if your device has a leakage
The first thing you will want to do is manually engage the pump by tapping on the water tile from the home screen of the Gardyn app.
Remove the bottom yPod from each column and check if there is any visible leaking from the connections between the hoses from the lid and the hoses from the columns. Here is a video demonstrating what the leak will look like.
If you observe leaking from the irrigation connector, we suggest you switch the quick connect to the little 90-degrees elbow connectors. See below how to do so.
Remove the Column to Gain Access to the Quick Connect
1.) Remember, safety comes first! Be sure you power off the Gardyn using the main switch at the rear of the water tank and unplug the power supply from the back of the Gardyn before moving on to the next step.
2.) To prevent completely disassembling the columns, we strongly suggest working one column at a time. You will now want to remove the screws that hold the upper blade in place for the column you are starting with.
3.) Carefully move the column away from the stability bar (as shown below):
4.) Just as when you attach the columns to the base, you will want to rotate the lowest part of the column to the right and gently lift it up.
5.) Remove both blue c-clips on the quick connect and place them in the Gardyn cloth accessories bag for safekeeping.
6.) Press on the top of the connector to release the irrigation hose. This video demonstrates how to remove the irrigation hoses by pressing on the top of the connector.
Install the Elbow Connector
Now that the quick connector is removed, you can install the replacement elbow connector.
1.) First, install the connector to the irrigation hose that is inside the lid, as shown below:
2.) Take the irrigation hose from the column you removed and attach it to the irrigation connector inside the lid. This assembly video might look familiar to you! It is a clip from the installation video guiding you on how to install them properly.
3.) Now that the connectors are installed place the column back on the Gardyn and lock it in place by rotating it clockwise until it clicks in space.
4.) Screw the stability bar back into place for this column and repeat the steps with the remaining columns.
