These units work for awhile then fail. I have gone through 3 in 3 years.

Sprinkler worked about 30 minutes, then started spraying erratically. The "ring" works itself loose after a while so your pattern settings are useless.
This sprinkler is a complete waste of your time and money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makguyver Best Sprinkler EVER!!!
I was skeptical that this sprinkler would work as described, After some "trial and error" of adjustments, it works PERFECTLY! We no longer waste water watering our sidewalk or driveway. We've had ours for about 5 months now, with no problems whatsoever. Once you get the hang of adjusting the distance you want the water to spray, it's a breeze to set up again when you move it around the yard. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EasternCutter Unit doesn't hold the spray circumference that you set
When setting this unit, the sprayer unit rotates on the base at will, thus negating the spray circumference that you set. At first, I thought someone had moved the unit because my driveway was soaked and my grass wasn't as wet as it should have been. So, I looked at my security video camera and nobody tampered with it. So, I set it again. Twice in 1 hour it has rotated on it's own. I can't get it to water the area that I set it for for more than a few minutes. I've had this unit for only one day, so it's going back to Home Depot for a refund.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Molly Do not buy this brand...
The concept of this sprinkler is genius! When working properly, it can water an unusual shaped yard efficiently without wasting excess water. There are two problems with this brand of sprinkler. On day two of sprinkler use, it failed to rotate on its own. I nudged it gently thinking it was just a one time problem to get it going again. In a 30 minute time span, I had to "nudge" it 6 times or it would just sit in one direction. Lastly after 4 days of use, the entire sprinkler head rotated itself off the base of the sprinkler. This was probably caused by the water pressure that slowly unscrewed the head off. One would think you could screw it back on easily, but you can't as the screw base is loose and moveable. Thus every time you try to screw the head back on, the screw base just rotates with the head. You can't screw the head back on since you can't hold the screw base (it's hidden inside the base of the sprinkler) while screwing the head back on. I'm done and fed up with this sprinkler. I went and purchased the same sprinkler made from Gilmour and couldn't be happier!

This sprinkler is another example of junk being sold. I bought two of these and one broke completely apart and became unusable after only 3 weeks. The other one lasted 5 weeks so on average you can expect about 4 weeks of lawn water before you throw these away.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adriclives Finally a sprinkler that works
After purchasing and returning multiple Gilmour sprinkler models from Lowes (who does not carry Nelson sprinklers), my wife and I finally gave it one more attempt at getting our recently hydro-seeded lawn sprinklers.
The Nelson Pattern Pro was exactly what we needed. We have well-water and our water pressure isn't great when split 4-ways for sprinklers so it was great to find that the nelson handled this fine, not only that but covered a very large area (we have 0.6 acres and only needed 4).
I never write up reviews online, but we spent days looking for a decent sprinkler so hopefully this can help others find one quicker than we did!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by js98038 Saves so much time!
This is a great sprinkler! I have an odd shaped front yard and before this sprinkler, I was spending hours moving around my previous sprinkler to cover all of the yard.
It is best to have 2 people to set this up. You'll need one person to make sure the water is reaching all the corners you want it to reach, as the other person is adjusting the length of the spray.
The only downfall is that you have to turn the water pressure up full blast for the sprinkler to work, but sometimes that makes the sprinkler move as the sprinkler is plastic and lightweight. I am going to look for a way to stake it into the ground. Other than that, this is a great product!
