Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Poor Coverage Area
The sprinkler I purchased says "Orbit 699-292" on the label. I cannot find it on the Home Depot website. However, this Melnor model look exactly the same as what I bought and it is the same price as what I paid for mine. I suspect it is the same one.
The advertised 315 sq ft coverage is not even close to what mine covers. With the faucet turned on full power it emits about a 4 ft diameter circle, or around 12.5 sq ft. I bought it to water a small area in my yard that I reseeded but the output on this is ridiculous.
I have larger and more expensive sprinklers that I could use but I bought this one because I wouldn't care if it "walked off" in the middle of the night if I left it out. I will be returning this one as soon as the rest of the water dries out in it.

We bought several different sprinklers for an irrigation system to help establish our trees and bushes along the perimeter of our garden. We needed several sprinklers and we were concerned about the water pressure going down as we opened up the valves. While the other sprinklers stopped running, this one worked well with our system. The water pressure remained pretty constant, and the sprinklers are even nice to look at. It's like having a bunch of water fountains.
