Answer: 
Yes, but you may not have enough water pressure to get the full effect from using that many at one time.

Answer: 
If your water system can handle it, I don't see why not. I would only run 2 systems in line than put a zone manifold in. I think the product would perform better.

Answer: 
Water pressure is the key - They will connect but they may not work well after they have been running for a minute and all the air is pushed out of the system - if you buy them get yourself some extra hose in case you need to split them to get the right pressure

Answer: 
Yep. Each one has an in and out port. You just have to cap the last one in the chain. However, I have found that the water pressure starts to diminish as it reaches the third and fourth one. So I have two sets of three hooked up to two different spigots.

Answer: 
Yes, just undo the last head port and you should be able to attach OR you could use a connector at the second sprinkler head to connect the last two.

Answer: 
Hello this is Tangelo from the Home Depot Community!
They will connect together, but do you have enough pressure to make all of them work. Your best bet is to try 2 sets (6 sprinkler heads) and see how that goes first.
I hope this helps, if you have any more questions you can find me on our website at community.homedepot.com

Can you link more than the three heads up to one system or do you need to split them with a zone valve manifold?

Yes, you have the option to add more heads, but you would probably lose some range with the more heads you add.

Answer: 
You can put multiple in line if your water pressure can handle it. If you have low pressure you will need to split them off and use a manifold to regulate witch heads get water and when.

Answer: 
Sure, you could cut and splice the hose to add more heads, but the hose and sprinklers on the unit are extremely low quality. You could accomplish the same thing with better quality hose and sprinklers. If needed to set up several sprinkler heads, you would need some pretty good water pressure.

Answer: 
It depends on your water pressure - sometimes more heads allow you turn the water all the way on while less heads might have back off on how much pressure you send - or you might waste water

You can only run 3 heads at a time, but you can turn off each head at the sprinkler to manage the individual heads so only 3 are active at a time

Answer: 
Each sprinkler head on the Port-A-Rain is using approximately 3.5 gallons per-minute (GPM). I have attached a link to our movie on YouTube about how to measure water flow. Once you know your water flow, you will be able to figure out how many heads you can add to your line. For example, if your available water flow is 17.5 GPM, you can have up to 5 heads on one line using 3.5 GPM each.

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 78 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Would think twice about buying this again Bought this sprinkler in the hopes of eventually purchasing more to had an above ground watering system. I never went back to purchase more because the one I have does not work well at all. The features that I was the most excited about was the fact that it would spray 360 degrees to just a small section depending on what you wanted. The problem is that the water reaches the first sprinkler attached to the hose then in slowly trickles to the last two sprinklers. The quality of the sprinklers is great its just the design that makes me rate it poor. The only reason I still have the product is because it is great for my 9 month old to play in. August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Returning it Similar to other reviews - got less than a foot diameter of spray. Really disappointing. Also disappointing was that the Home Depot salesperson recommended the product. August 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst purchase ever! Silly me! I purchased 3 sets of these BEFORE I read the reviews. I came across the reviews while trying to trouble shoot why this system works so poorly. It would almost be laughable had I not spent my hard earned money, $60, on the worst product I have every purchased. The actual radius is from 4 INCHES to up to 2 (that's TWO) feet. The sprinklers are very light plastic--so light, in fact, that I had to use garden pins to keep the hoses from flipping them over. Save your sanity and hard earned money to look elsewhere. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works better than expected I'm not sure what the bad reviews are about. I have this connected to a timer (already restricting flow) and laid out around my patio with 180° spray pattern and they easily have an 8' radius. Will be adding 3 more to cover another area. August 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by useful Great design. I went with 4 instead of 5 because of quality. Not bad but not great. June 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not worth 20.00 the idea behind this is what most are looking for but not when you put connect and start running the water to only find that it barley sprays. Its almost just as bad as holding your water hose and watering your lawn. Not enough pressure or distance coverage. May 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Forget It! Sorry, a great idea but pure junk. Poorly constructed sprinkler and hose makes this a very bad buy. May 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Maybe good for small applications in water restricted areas Nice concept, but the mini spray sprinklers deliver little. Best application is where water is at a premium, but to get some water down in the South Florida dry Spring, this purchase was a waste of money. May 2, 2016
