Customer Questions & Answers

Need the manual for this sprinkler to set the distance of the water

Tried turning the wheel for the distance but can't get the right distance
Asked by: SALSERO
The adjustment on the sprinkler determines how low the jets point to each side. To vary the distance, adjust the water pressure. A higher pressure will spray water further. If it's not going far enough for you, you might have low water pressure.

2900 sq. ft. Oscillating Sprinkler in Cutbox is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked well until it broke I am disappointed with this sprinkler. Its not expensive, but I hoped it would last all summer. To be fair, it worked well until the tabs that hold the mixing bowl-oscillating mechanism into the green body broke. This happened on a previous Melnor sprinkler, too, and there's no repairing it. I tried super glue and gorilla glue and neither held. The sprinkler was used for typical residential watering, was not abused or stepped on, nor was it left out in the sun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid performing sprinkler I went looking for a spike/fan spray sprinkler, but HD didn't have any. However, at less than $7, this seemed a good choice to do much the same thing - be able to adjust the spray from a strip to a larger area. This works really well and is quite flexible in terms of the pattern. Varying the water pressure as well as the movement (which is adjustable) allows for a very decent control of what area is watered. I think this is an incredible value. The actual build quality is quite good, but the value comes from the inexpensive plastic parts (such as the cam that drives the oscillation) which will need to be treated gently and taken care of - a good tradeoff for such a cheap solution!
