June 23, 2014
I have purchased this product from your stores on two occasions (I'm told it is now only availlable on-line).

On the first occasion, the product had a 'SHOWER' setting and not a 'MIST' setting. On the second occasion, it hada MIST setting but not a SHOWER setting.

I want to order more with the MIST setting. If I order more on-line, I want to be sure to get the MIST setting.

Answer: 
with the model I have you can set the diffuser to maximum (3 clicks on top) and depending on which pattern you have it on it should spread/fan out the spray for more mist/rain and not such a direct spray

It has a vertical and horizontal fan spray. This is similar to a mist but slightly heavier so it travels

July 7, 2016
My Front Yard is 25 ft wide x 40 Ft long

New to using these types of Sprinklers
Always used Wand Type sprinklers..

can I set the spray pattern to cover this area?
I'd imagine 180 degree wide and will spray out that 40 ft distance, with about 25 psi ( On Well Water)

Will this do the job vs using my Wand type sprinkler that I have to Drag out all the time and put it away..?

I Figure to Just run the hose thru my Bushes ( with my 2 hr timer) , into this Unit stuck in the ground at the Edge of the bushes and begining of the lawn & just turn on the Water faucet and set the timer and Jobs done.. an djust put it out in the spring, ring it back in in the Fall..

During July & August , things get dry Here in Wi. and I have to water every week ..

If this works? No More Lugging out & Putting away the Wand Sprinkler all the time anymore.. and won't get in the way of when mowing the lawn.., like the wand sprinkler does..

Answer: 
it should be able to get that distance you can set the arc for whatever radius you need (narrow to nearly 360 degrees) and do not put on the diffuser (each pattern can also have the diffuser set to 4 different options (essentially none, small, medium, and large) to make that distance. there are six different patterns, some shoot farther some not as far.

Answer: 
RETIREDREDNECK, the distance of spray coverage will vary depending on which spray mode (shower, vert, flat, etc.) you are using. That said, with about 25 PSI at your house, it is very unlikely that any of the available spray modes on this sprinkler would reach the full 40 feet. If you were to place the sprinkler in the middle of your lawn - though it sounds like that is what you're trying to avoid - Read More

If you were to place the sprinkler in the middle of your lawn - though it sounds like that is what you're trying to avoid - that would reduce the required spray distance down to only 20 feet on each side, which should allow the sprinkler to reach the entirety of your lawn.

Answer: 
db, in essence you can. You can't set it to be perfectly stationary, per se, but you can adjust the arc of the spray even down to nearly no movement at all. Please feel free to contact our Support team at 1-800-488-6156 if you have any other questions, and we'd be happy to help. Thanks!

Answer: 
That depends on your water pressure. City pressure is around 60 gpm and these sprinklers I believe put out about 3.5 gpm therefore it would make sense that you could put four of these out there with no problems.

Answer: 
natelli, that is a difficult question to answer straight-up. You will lose water pressure for each sprinkler you add to any line, but it will depend on your faucet pressure to really determine whether you will have adequate pressure at the end of your line (no matter how many sprinklers you add). The length of hose between the sprinklers will make a difference, as well. Please contact our Support team at Read More

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 103 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Temp sprinkler If you need a sprinkler that will break (top pops off) then this is the product for you. I bought 3 of these. The first two, the sprinkler would get stuck. You could move it by hand to get it going again, but eventually the top just pops off while you're trying to move it, streaming water straight up. Which will get you soaked. The 3rd one. The 2nd time i turned it on, it was working fine. Came out 15 minutes later to see water just spewing out the top. Although it's my own fault, that I purchased the product more than once expecting different results. Just buy a quality brand in ground sprinkler and adapt a hose to it. More initial work, way less overall work. October 17, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great potential, not a great sprinkler I absolutely hate myself for just driving to Home Depot this afternoon and buying another one of these sprinklers! So why did I do it? Because I really like the sprinkler, the patterns are a perfect match for my yard, big areas and tiny areas and it MISTS FLOWER BEDS REALLY WELL! B U T, and that is a big B U T, it isn't made very well, this is my THIRD one, the other two broke, one just quit going back and forth and the other literally exploded just above the setting rings and shot a stream of water 15 feet into the air which I didn't notice for over an hour, flooding my flower bed, plastic pieces were lying all around the spike. Yes, they leak a bit, they don't last very long, they feel a bit fragile and getting a look inside one (an opportunity afforded me by the one that exploded) I see a SUPER SKINNY plastic pin that actuates the back and forth that looks like it would break in a stiff wind. "IF" this sprinkler were better thought out, made entirely of brass, and cost $100, I would likely buy it, I like it that much. But as-is, it is too expensive to be this fragile and un-reliable. We'll see how my third one holds up, three in less than two seasons. So, there ya go..; August 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Does well, some issues Good spray options and rotates nice and evenly. But hard to control spray amount (the spray amount control settings really don't change the volume significantly) and controlling radius is easy (but is not obvious). I also found that the volume of water to connected sprayers was much lower than if they were directly connected, so that feature was not of much use. October 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Orbit Sprinler Very good sprinkler covers wide range of the yard easy to setup different levels of spray. Very happy with the purchase. October 25, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet Operation The gear drive provides a very quiet operation over the oscillating type sprinklers and this model has many spray patterns and spray droplet patterns to fit nearly any watering situation. When installing, Do Not push on the top, step on the metal spike flanges. I rated the quality as Fair because the first one I owned broke after less than 100 hours of operation. The part that is supposed to adjust the sweep broke and the sprinkler did not reverse itself. Also the metal spike is a soft metal and easily bent when trying to insert it into hard soil. The cost was under $20 so I opted to try it again, especially since it was the only gear drive available. I hope it lasts longer than the first. September 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job Works much better then any other I have used, delivery pattern is excellent.......a little expensive, or I would have bought two more. Overall a good product. September 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product.] Good coverage and differents modes to set and good, warranty seven years. September 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great product. Much better than cheaper optipns. Nice option on spray patterns. Own several of these, don't let them stay out in freezing conditions: cracked body. Start to stick and need cleaning/lubrication after a year of daily use. September 6, 2016
