Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cpl1775 good idea - poor cheap design
I bought the frame it all raised garden bed this year and was very happy with it so I thought I'd buy the sprinkler to go with it, but it was a problem from the time I opened the box. Most of it was pre-assembled with about 20 of the little twisty ties holding it all together. After about 10 minutes to get them all off you have to start putting the rest of it together by connecting the sprinkler's into the plastic tubes. The problem with this is that it requires you to twist them together and there is no where to grab it except on the T connectors and these snap off very easily with no way to fix it. Once it's broke you have to replace it. Since this kit comes with enough for a 4'x8' bed and I have a 4'x4' I used one of the other T connectors to replace it. After it was all assembled I attached it to the garden hose and when I turned it on only 3 out of the 8 sprinklers were working and even those 3 were minimal. I quickly disassembled it and took it back to the store for a refund.

Despite the image on the box of a two-tiered raised garden box, this sprinkler cannot be used on one because the connecting hose between the two sections is too stiff. Also, the hoses that connect the sprinkler head to the main line are located too closely to where you have to connect the pieces. It does not leave enough room to get a grip on the pipe without snapping them off. I thought it was a fluke the first time when I snapped off the connector hose, so I exchanged it for another and was extra careful. Unfortunately, the same thing happened with the second unit. Needless to say, I am very disappointed in this product and returned the second one, too.

Cheap, flimsy, and does not stay together. Leaks everywhere.

I wish I had read the other reviews before wasting my money. I picked this up on clearance last fall and stored it over the winter. The image (drawing) on the package is completely deceptive. What appears to be soft hoses are actually hard plastic tubes. Two of the sprinkler connectors snapped off during assembly and cannot be repaired. Nor can I find replacement parts.
Assembly was aided by using a blow dryer to heat the tubing.
Having read the other reviews I am not sure it is worth the effort of hooking it to the hose.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by zardoz This really wasn't what I expected...
This is a pretty nice sprinkler system, but it really didn't fit what I needed to do. It works pretty good, after some modifications were made. I might have been better off rigging my own system from the ground up, but it might have been more expensive than the original kit and the modifications. It's not meant for anything more than a low pressure/flow rate.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Yakhchali1 Good device, a little pricy.
This is a very good device compared to whatever else found in the market. Even the ones that I put together myself using some tubing and clamps do not work as well. It is up to the task that it was made for. I think my plants are foing to enjoy this kit all suller long.May be it would sell for less in off season.
