Automators in my garden for 30 years
I have used automators for years - the original black ones - and I love them. I've never had a problem with "clogging" of the watering spikes. I did occasionally take a long thin piece of aluminum wire that I think was originally a tent stake and poke it down through the holes once in a while, but it wasn't anything I HAD to do.
I like the automators because it makes it easy for me to leave a watering well around the plant and then mulch (with corrugated cardboard underlayment as weed block) all the way around the rest of the plant.
I trench-plant my maters so I still leave some area along where the stem is buried where I don't put down cardboard so I can water along the entire rooted stem - put the automators make the whole process a lot easier, as well as making it easier to fertilize with liquid fertilizer.
