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: Anonymous
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.

This devise was used to control/soak an area of potential fire spread during last summers very serious High fire potential. Sprinkler was able to soak a large area below our house covering a 50 degree slope by 60 foot wide. Although there were heavy fire losses in adjoining areas , we were able to provide a high degree of safety for our mountain cabin. If we had experienced a crowning fire , then , all bets would have been off. We will be purchasing another sprinkler for next years potential heat hazard !

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.

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.

Doesn't mean it's a bad sprinkler. I needed it for my large veg garden. The spray only hit perimeter. I returned and went back to old fashion sprinkler which for me is easy to adjust and works great. FYI I adjusted and adjusted it for hours. Just didn't work for me.

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!!
