Put onto a hose, set the 360 degree spray radius with the yellow parts on the bottom, then you pull OUT not UP the yellow button on top to set the spray distance. Pulling it out is easy, pushing it back in to lessen the length is a little trickier. It's normal for the spray to go up really high into the air. That allows the water to fall closer to the sprinkler I think. I like how it sprays. Just got to Read More

Answer: 
I personally can't, but it's pretty simple. Connect the hose and turn it on. One yellow ring controls rotation in one direction, the other ring controls the other direction. Do it while you're holding it so you can direct the spray away from you, then put it in the ground and do the final adjustment for arc and range.

Answer: 
Slide the yellow piece on the top in and out to control the distance of the coverage. The arrows on the yellow rings pointing to the stop tabs indicate the spray direction. Position the stop tabs to determine the lateral coverage you want.

Dear Bob,
Thank you very much for your question.
I have reached out to manufacturer for more information and here is the response.
"In order to adjust the diameter of the spray simply slide the yellow deflector tab in and out. The further out the deflector is, the less the length of the spray. When the deflector is pushed all the way in, the unit is at full spray diameter.
• The 2950 turbo rotary sprinkler is adjustable by turning the yellow rings. There are two types of rings, one has arrows and one has tabs to slide. On both versions the rings do not rotate in a complete circle. Forcing the rings to rotate could cause the stop pin to break.
• If you have the version with the arrows on the adjustor rings, when the arrows are aligned (above one another) the sprinkler will operate to a full 360 degrees. By turning the top ring clockwise, the area decreases depending upon how far you move the ring in comparison to the degree you wish. Moving the ring 90 degrees decreases the movement of the sprinkler by that amount and gives you 270 degrees worth of coverage. Further adjustments will decrease the coverage area. The area between the arrows represents the area that will be covered.
• If you have the version with the tabs on the adjustor rings, you will need to hold the bottom tab and turn the top tab counterclockwise until the tab stops. The top tab should be slightly to the left of the bottom tab. By turning the top tab clockwise, the area decreases depending upon how far you move the ring in comparison to the degree you wish. Moving the ring 90 degrees decreases the movement of the sprinkler by that amount and gives you 270 degrees worth of coverage. Further adjustments will decrease the coverage area. The area between the tabs represents the area that will be covered."

55-60 psi water pressure. How many heads can be in line? Does it make a difference say 2 in line or 2 on a lead hose to a Y-splitter and hoses to each head? One reviewer said only one head at a time.

Turbo Rotary Sprinkler on Spike is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best water sprinkler ever! At first glance, this sprinkler looks very simple, lots of plastic and one ground spike. Don't be fooled. I own several pulsator sprinklers...none go as far as this one and it can be set not to go as high. The left/right setting are super simple to adjust. I'm watering a huge area with one sprinkler. It is virtually silent, does not pulse...just slowly and quietly goes back and forth. Try one...you'll like it. I doubt I will use my other pulsators.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good sprinkler Good for small areas and operates in a quite manner, good adjustments for the side to side movements, but the spray adjustments could use some work. The spray adjustments is hard to move and set, which makes it hard to figure where to set it as I have a hard time while sprinkler is running to judge it. It either is completely off or when I try to adjust it goes completely on. The spray does change on the back and forth motion from a long steady spray to a more spread out spray which is helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I bought 5 of these last year. After pulling them out for this year's watering season, two of them would not rotate. The product has a lifetime warranty. I sent Melnor an email about the two that stop rotating, and within a week I had two brand new sprinklers shipped to me, no questions. While it stinks that they stopped working in the first place, it's nice to see a company's customer service so easy. I like the fact that these are small, quiet, easy to set up, and cover a large area.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lots of adjusting One of my lawns is odd-sized and at first glance I thought this would work well. I was hoping this sprinkler could be adjusted to fan out over each section. But, it's so difficult to adjust, and for the most part, it sprays a stream to the edge, but nothing really hits the middle portion. It doesn't seem to adjust to spray the entire area efficiently. Adjustment after adjustment, off and on with the faucet again and again. It's just too much hassle and didn't spray evenly enough for me to give it any more than 2 stars. It seems to be fairly good quality and a good value, but overall it didn't work well for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from There are better sprinklers This sprinkler sprays water more as a stream than as a spray. What you end up with are two over-watered arcs and a dry area close to the sprinkler. There is an adjustable guard that is designed to break up the stream, but it significantly hampers the distance and "two stage-ness" of the sprinkler, turning it into two short-range soakers. If you get dirt into the mechanism it will struggle to rotate until the dirt works itself free; you need to test-run these sprinklers after setting them up or moving them. The major benefit to these is that they do not require a ton of pressure; I have low pressure and can run two of these in tandem. I use them with the guard extended for short-range watering.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the coverage not the stem I have had 2 of these and the stem has broken off both within a year. Will be returning. However this sprinkler does provide great coverage. Would give a 5 if stem was more durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intuitive and effective little sprinkler I use this on a manual timer once each day to help establish some sod I've recently installed. It took all of about 5 minutes to install and fine tune. The metal spike easily went into the hard Georgia clay and firmly held the sprinkler in the required vertical orientation. The bottom plastic rings rotate to set the spray pattern of the head. I could eyeball the initial settings because the sprinkler head will rotate against whichever stop it happens to rest against as you set the pattern width before you even turn the water on, which reduces the amount of time you have to spend crouched over a water spewing device. The sprinkler alternates between a long range stream and a short range spray to cover everything. It doesn't look that affective at first, but after 15 minutes it was obvious that it was getting the job done for my sod.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from For Small Yards This is useless for a medium to large area regardless if you're within it's range. I was trying to use this to water a 30' diameter which should be well within its range. But it fails miserably. I really did see it's design downfall before purchasing but was hopefully because of the price. The adjustment for it's distance is what ruins this sprinkler. It relies on shooting the water at a sharp angle in the air to get distance and a cheap piece of plastic that you have to manually slide back and forth that goes protrudes into the water stream that deflects the water. So for a longer distance you get more of a stream that does nothing for the middle to closer area you're trying to water. But if you're trying to water maybe within a 20' radius and closer you have to slide that plastic adjustment so far into the stream that you'll effectively water all the area but end up with a huge puddle right where the sprinkler is. Bottom line: waste of money and 2 trips to pick this up and now take it back.
