Customer Questions & Answers

What is the range of this -width and depth. I need a sprinkler to cover 20' wide by 10'

I prefer a lateral coverage of 20' with the oscillator adjusted to 5' each way
Asked by: Anonymous
That's not a question anyone will likely be able to accurately answer for you. The product is certainly capable of what you're asking; however, the product coverage is very dependent on your water pressure. For example, I have about 70 PSI water pressure coming from the public water line through my house to my outside faucet. My parents' house has a well out away from city/count water and their pump system is set with lower water pressure. The coverage area will be different because the water pressure going into the unit is different. My recommendation would be to test. I've purchased a couple units with great hopes and when they didn't work as they claimed for me, I returned them. I will tell you this: This Melnor unit is much better than the Ray Padula and Nelson units I tested of about the same coverage area. I hope this helps.

Can you set this up with a hose timer? Thanks in advance!

Asked by: Help

Can this be connected in series with other sprinklers? If not....are there ANY sprinklers like this that can be connected in series?

Asked by: Skip
I see no provision for connecting this in series, there is only a plug for clean-out on the opposite end from the hose connector. As to your other question, might I suggest google?

Mine won't oscillate I've fiddled with the tabs but still won't move. It worked when I first got it a couple of months ago

Asked by: Joyiiner
It has a lifetime guarantee. Contact Melnor and they will send you a new one.

3,900 sq. ft. Deluxe Turbo Oscillating Sprinkler is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 292.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from World's greatest sprinkler It may not be the world's greatest but it certainly is the best oscillating sprinkler I've ever used. I have two of them. The width of the spray can be adjusted from very narrow to very wide and the amount the sprinkler rotates in each direction can be independently adjusted from zero to near 90 degrees. For example, both sides could be adjusted for zero rotation which would give a spray straight up. Or one side could be set at zero and the other at full near 90 degrees which would give a spray in only one direction. Or both could be set at near 90 degrees - or any combination that you want

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Versatile I purchased one of these the other day and I was very impressed by how differently and easily it can be configured by just sliding a tab here or there. My narrow side yard was always a bit difficult to get it right without watering half of my neighbor's yard or having much of the water going down the wall of my house. This adjusts right down to exactly where I want it on a narrow 5' wide path and has a lot of reach front to back. I bought their other 3700' coverage sprinkler last year and it still works well but it does not have the width adjusting feature. I wish I'd spent $5 more and bought this 3900' coverage model instead. I'm going to stop by Home Depot on my way home today and buy a second one of these. I just had my yard aerated and overseeded and having two of these going at once (different faucets) will greatly reduce the time I spend each afternoon for the next two weeks watering the yard. My 3700' one does OK but it does not have the coverage that my new 3900' one provides. To those of you who tossed your sprinkler in the trash because you said the rubber nozzles wore out, did you not know about Melnor's lifetime warranty on this sprinkler? Save you receipt, or opt for the email version and save it to a special folder, like I have started doing. ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful because of adjustment controls Bought this 6 years ago, it finally 'died' (quit oscillating). Immediately bought another. There is a cheaper model, but it is not adjustable, and I wouldn't recommend it. But this deluxe model allows for adjustment of both the width of the spray (wide to narrow, one adjustment), and the angle of the spray, that is, how far it oscillates. And this second control is separate for each side, so that you can have the spray oscillate all the way to about 45 degrees on either side, or as little as 5 degrees, approximately. Quality I rated one notch lower, because it is plastic, and will break down in time (as mine did in 6 years).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product I purchased a couple of the turbo sprinklers about 5 to 6 years ago. They worked just fine for all that time. They were used them extensively. Both of them had issues with the adjusting handles that broke off but the unit still worked. I contacted Melnor about this issue. With their lifetime warranty I received 2 new units with no questions asked in only 3 day after I addressed the issue. That is the best customer service I have ever seen. I would recommend Melnor above all other type products. It is a great quality product with wonderful features. John B Mint Hill NC

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing results Melnor name and not Melnor dependability. Unless you run full water flow/pressure (35-40 psi municipal water service) through the sprinkler, the arm sticks at the end stop of the travel in both directions. Trying to use this in small areas such as a parkway between the city sidewalk is a challenge. The old Melnor oscillating sprinkler that I had for 30 years failed from age and brittle components - the only reason I replaced it. I bought this model on 6/21/16 and it is going back to the store on 6/22/16. Unless your watering a practice green in your back yard that measures 30' x 40', this thing is worthless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage! Don't need a system anymore with this!! I love this sprinkler so far. I live on a large corner lot and this sprinkler, with its adjustable settings, covers very large areas at a time. I only have to move it around the perimeter of the house, as it covers the entire area on any given side without having to move it around multiple times. Before finding this, I was about to lay down $3500 on a sprinkler system and now I don't have to. I can't speak for the long-term functionality or durability of the sprinkler, as I've only had it two weeks. Time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully adjustable, great product I truly believe you can adjust this sprinkler for just about any yard requirements. I have been using this to cover areas that my installed sprinkler system misses. It feels like cheap plastic but as far as I can tell it functions properly and may last longer since it won't corrode over time. It is possible to adjust the strength of stream, width of stream, and coverage area. By using all three adjustments it is possible to tweak the coverage area to get the exact coverage needed. I use it in 3 different areas with different coverage requirements for each. You can get a little wet trying to make adjustments when it is running and try timing adjustments between streams but the product works as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Deluxe" is accurate This sprinkler is a bit better than the average oscillating sprinkler in just about every way, thus earning the "deluxe" in its name. The base is wide, so I had no problem with the device moving or twisting from the water pressure. It also casts a very wide spray covering more ground, and allows the width of the coverage to be adjusted easily to accurately fit the area being sprayed to the area desired. Finally the sprinkler allows for it to be set to go 180 degrees to 90 degrees - I think most (if not all) oscillating sprinklers have this feature, but the adjustment was just a little bit easier on this sprinkler than others I have used.
