Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eric Can't beat the price. Good quality equipment
Like every other home owner sick off moving sprinkler around. After researching on sprinkler system, I came across this automatic sprinkler system, and boy I'm happy that I purchase and spent time installing it. The package said one afternoon!! yea sure if you have 5 people helping you lol. I'm very impress on the quality of the system. From tubing, fittings, sprinklers head and timer there all good quality. The digging was the must painful time. other then that 6 sprinkler reach all my side yard. Decide to do the other side off the house by using same product but with different fittings and timer and thats how I know that rain bird made this to last for a long time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Product great but timer only worked a few minutes
I could not afford a professional system so I found this system on Home Depot web site. The installation was not as simple as I was led to believe. It took me a week to design and install the system. The digging was the hardest step. After installing the system the timer quit working. Now it only shows the word SET or a 3 symbol word that looks like not. I've tried pressing every button and every setting and it refuses to do anything. A sprinkler system that will not let water through it is not really a sprinkler system..... Hope I can get it replaced, as I have put in 35 to 40 hours in installing the system. Home Depot has always been good at replacing bad products with a good one.

This kit has been a huge time and energy saver this Spring. My lawn never got watered as much as it should've before because of the hassle of dragging the hose and sprinkler out and, more often, just forgetting. This kit includes everything needed to automate watering the lawn. With a little planning i was able to cover my entire front yard and landscaping with a single kit. Installation was very straightforward and just took a little planning, measuring, and digging to get everything working perfectly.
I'm very happy with this kit and would recommend to it to anybody wanting the greenest lawn on the block with minimal effort

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tsjl Works Great - Just like a professionally installed system
I've had the Rainbird system for about a month now and I couldn't be happier. The installation was easy. I have sandy soil so all I needed to do was make a simple 8" "V" cut with a spade (by plunging the spade into the soil and moving the handle back and forth to create enough space to lay the line into). My yard is about 2500 sf and I only needed 5 of the 6 sprinkler heads. I did need to buy an extra 20' of 1/2" tubing at the hardware store ($7.80 at 39 cents per foot). The timer is easy to set and works flawlessly. I changed some of the nozzles in the heads (included) in order to insure full coverage of the area. My neighbor just received a quote of $2,500 to have a professional system installed in his yard (about the same area as mine). At that rate, I figure I can replace my Rainbird every year for the next 20 years!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Taylor Exceptional Product READ THIS FOR ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
I began my 5000 soft backyard project with the concern that I would end up quitting half way through and wishing I had hired someone to install irrigation. Our quote for sprinklers from another company was just around $2000. After researching irrigation systems I came across the RainBird Easy to Install System. I calculated the amount of zones I would require based on my water pressure (which I measured at 63-65psi) and my flow rate (which I measured at 6.5 gallons per minute) and determined that I would need 4 kits. So I bought a manifold with four spigots and off i went. I have heard that it takes people an afternoon to install one kit. I did all four kits in right around 6 hours. Maybe it was my pre-planned layout?? I am not sure. But I am certain that It was incredibly easy to set up this kit. After all was said and done I had a combination of 6 sprinklers in a line, 2 sprinklers in a line and four split off from there, and the factory recommended 3 sprinklers per split side. What I am here to tell you, is that MY experience with this product is such that, I planned for the sprinklers to be 15 ft apart and be able to reach each sprinkler head. Well MY predictions worked out perfectly. Every sprinkler head shoots at or around 16 ft with my pressure and flow rate. My yard has 24 sprinkler heads and four automatically controlled zones now. With the over seeding we did and the ETI Rain Bird watering system we had sprouts growing in as little as 5 days. This product is phenomenal!!! Just make sure you have the pressure and flow rate. I really think that is all you need. Then, you have the freedom to hook up sprinklers in any form necessary... THAT IS JUST MY OPINION and NOT the FACTORY RECOMMENDATION!!! I won't be held liable for your mistakes/choices!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricGonzalez Not easy to install. One afternoon turn out to be 3 afternoon
Overall the unit it's really good ones everything it's up and running. All 6 sprinkler reach each other and cover my front yard. If you have less then 60psi don't install the unit. The hardest part was digging and making sure the tubing is deep enough if you like to aerated and over seed. My biggest suggestion make sure you follow the instructions on how far each sprinkler have to go and purchase extra elbow for simple mistakes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AC hard to adjust
I had trouble adjusting the sprinkler heads. I would have preferred if heads had a guage on them to show the coverage rather than having to adjust while the water was running. Also, I would prefer more sturdy spikes and perhaps a holder to give it more stability when the water runs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Easy Set Up
Once you get everything out of the box it is very easy to install. I only put three heads per zone and had to buy another water timer but that was my preference.
