Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not given as seen above. I ordered the above sprinkler. the one above is Melnor. I received this photo attached no name sprinkler. I thought there was something different but didn't pick out the problem right away. It has no step on feature and no circular feature so that you can adjust the coverage. It's a soft metal so it bent when pushed into the ground. And it came with no directions. All around piece of junk and if you read the reviews below you'll see that this switch has been going on for a while now. Don't Buy It. You won't get what you paid for. I'm bringing this thing back.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by The sprinkler pictured is NOT the in store item. The sprinkler pictured is NOT the sprinkler with "Store SKU # 440313". The in store sprinkler with SKU 440-313 is an Orbit pulsating sprinkler with a green painted head and a straight spike (no step). I went to buy three of the pictured "Melnor Pulsating Sprinkler with Step Spike", but could not find them in the store even thought they were shown as being in stock, so I added them to an order I was also placing. When I picked up the order I was disappointed to find that they were the Orbit sprinklers I did not want. I immediately returned the sprinklers. I have heard that there are problems with Home Depot's online system, and this is clearly one of them. I am back to looking for some new sprinklers. (As I had to provide an Overall Rating, I selected Average.) May 18, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good if you take care of it. The sprinkler part is fine. It's the aluminum spike that works great if you are "Careful". If you bend it , it will break off and make sprinkler useless. They have another one I replaced it with at Home Depot I can't recall if same brand but, it has a single spike without the step to push it into the ground with. So far THIS new one is better. But, if you are careful it will last a while. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Purchase for Low Cost I was not able to purchase the Melnor Spike sprinkler as they are not in stock or online at Home Depot. The numbers online refers to an Orbit Spike sprinkler which is cheaper in cost and quality. However, the sprinkler works well and I've had no problems with it. I have two. They do not have the step on the spike like the Melnor to push it into hard dirt easily. October 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Spike sprinkler Would prefer a timer-based, flat-base option with this metal head. all the others were plastic and too cheap. Wish HD had better sprinkler options November 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by well designed for my particular needs Excellent to select irrugular shaped area of the lawn or garden to water. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Sprinkler! Great product!! Well crafted, large coverage area, easy to set a pattern, relatively quiet! Only problem is none of my local stores carry these. Be aware that this product shares the same sku as the Vigoro model 27910. So if you order it for in-store pick up or even online you may not be getting the product you were hoping for. July 12, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gets the job done. Bought these in conjunction with the Melnor 2 hose attachment sprinkler timer with the plan of daisy chaining 2-3 sprinkler heads to one of the 2 connection. This did not pan out. The sprinkler timer valves reduced the water pressure to much. The results: 3 daisy-chained = nonfunctional. Heads didnt have enough pressure to spin 2 daisy-chained = functional but distance of coverage cut in half 1 sprinkler = fully functional full coverage Without the use of the sprinkler timer the results were: 3 daisy-chained = functional but distance of coverage cut in half 2 daisy-chained = functional almost full coverage(varied by head) 1 sprinkler = fully functional full coverage In the end i ended up returning the 2 hose connection Melnor timers for the 4 hose connections in order to get the coverage i needed. Also, dialing in the sprinkler head will take some trial and error and varies by sprinkler head. If the head is setup to go in a continuous circle without reciprocating back and forth then you will end up with a 2-3 foot gap in the middle of the coverage that does not get as much water. Very noticeable when all the grass is 3-4 inches and the grass in that area is half the height. Stakes also bend easily so do not force them. TL;DR: Good for the price and what they are, but don't chain together more than 2. September 30, 2014
