Questions & Answers

I have now purchased this item twice, and with both, the sprinkler goes in one direction and then just stops. What am I doing wrong???

Should the sprinkler work automatically when you turn on the water or is there an on/off switch on the sprinkler? Water is going through the hose.

but not coming out the sprinkler
Asked by: fay
I had trouble with water coming out the bottom as well. Remove the small mesh ball and rubber washer from the sprinkler's hose connector. I then used a rubber washer I had on hand and it works great. I'm not sure what the mesh ball did - looked like a diffuser but it didn't work for me.

Is each leg adjustable independently?

in other words, can it be setup on a hill and adjusted so it would be level.

how do I adjust it so it goes more than 10 ft from the nozzle

Asked by: meme
Turn up your water pressure, tilt the tripod back so the water spray is shooting higher, etc.

I read the reviews on the Melnor Deluxe Metal Pulsating Sprinkler with Tripod and wasn't really sold on it. Then I watched a video on YouTube showing this product in action. It looked like it would handle the watering of my wife's garden, so I took a chance. After I set the tripod where I wanted it, adjusted the stops for the coverage area, hooked up the hose and turned the water on, the sprinkler was not pulsating, and no matter how I adjusted the diffuser, the spray was not going to come close to the 40 foot plus radius (85 foot diameter) that is advertised. I looked it over and kept making adjustments without success. I had my neighbor come over to see if a fresh set of eyes could see something I wasn't. He couldn't get it to work either, and we're both pretty mechanical guys. The sprinkler didn't come with any instructions, so I went to Melnor's website where I found one page that was pretty useless. I also went back to YouTube to see if there were any helpful videos, but again, nothing. I'll be taking it back to Home Depot tomorrow.

These sprinklers are great, they are easy to use and most of all easy to adjust the spraying area. No more pinching together the prongs like on the other ones. I am a senior and adjusting the other sprinklers was difficult, these have a totally differant type of adjusters. Simple and work great!!

Prolly used 50 -75 or so times since (1) the black plastic knob to tighten/set the downtube and the three legs braces broke within a few months. No big deal as it's function wasn't integral to the main job of watering. (2) As others have noted, the clip that is used to set a 'stop' for less-than-360 operation is weak - it won't hold, letting the 'stop' slip. Useless. (3) Now the water hose coupling has loosened to excessive amount of 'play' where the collar surrounds the down tube...up, down, side to side (see pics). So the water leakage is massive. New washer no help. Unit is longer operational. Poor design and machining. Recommend avoiding.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from How hard can it be to build a decent sprinkler? As an owner of a company that sells products into Home Depot and works extremely hard to achieve the highest quality, I am stunned with the inability of sprinkler manufacturers to build a simple sprinkler that can survive. I envision the engineers at Melnor spending more time on computer solitaire than in doing testing and failure engineering on their products. A sheet-metal part on our tripod sprinkler just fell off because the rivet snapped. Rivet was rusted or corroded - could not tell which. Should they design more robust rivets? Product also often decided not to rotate and locked in one position. Other than that this was a great product.

We have a difficult bank over a patio to water that is concave... the tripod allows us to tip the sprinkler up at an angle and reach the entire bank without flooding our patio. It is also water tight and doesn't leak. We love it and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to water a hard to reach area or just a large area. This sprinkler reaches farther than our previous pulsating sprinkler too.

Not only did it leak like an open faucet from the head, but the spray pattern shot a jet of water straight out to it's furthest reach, soaking the ground 12 feet away, and dropping almost no moisture between that point and the sprinkler. And yes: 12 feet was the distance it reached. That's a total of 24 feet in range, not the 85 feet claimed.

The distance it can cover is nearly perfect for my needs. It is very easy to adjust the tripod height, diameter of area that is to be watered. My only issue with this purchase was the way it was shipped. There was not very much care in packing the tripod in a box, which was very large, with minimal packing material.

Although the sprinkler does a good job of watering a Large area, the tripod is cheaply made. The pins that hold the legs to the center post are a small cheap metal NOT secured with a small bolt. The pins are spread at the end and does not withstand and stress. I have replaced the pins with a small screw and nut.
