A: It will rotate, however,you have to be careful ,as the connectors can unscrew from the nozzle. It too can separate from the nozzle but not very often. I use teflon tape when I attach the quick connects on both the hose side and the quick connection on the nozzle side to help keep the attaching quick connects from unscrewing.
A: I believe it did. However, I live with a well and hard, very iron rich water. It plugged up the rotation head of the sprinkler pretty quickly. It rapidly decreased to only a 180 rotation, and then stopped rotating completely. A fixed in place sprinkler is not very helpful. I have thrown out BOTH sprinklers I purchased
A: I have no clue - works wonderfully - much better than their garbage hoses.
A: Yes, plastic, rubber gaskets and aluminum construction. I recommend you use a needle nose plier to remove the plastic water stopper inside since it interferes with water flow and pressure on your garden hose and it is something you can easily live without. It's a great design. I like it a lot. I use 2 of these quick connects on both ends of a vacuum backflow preventer so it is super-easy to remove the backflow preventer from the hose bibb. This lets me stay in code and household water safety when using the garden hose. I found a lead-free model for the vacuum backflow preventer and a lead-free garden hose. So end-to-end, no lead anywhere. I use plumber's tape to wrap the threads and silicone plumber's grease so easy on and off, if needed and a super-tight, leak-free connection.
A: If this is like the Orbit connectors there is a piece inside that is normally sealed and when you connect the male end into the female it pushes the "stop" in allowing water to flow through. So when you remove the male end it reseals quickly. The advantage is it stops the water when you disconnect. The disadvantage is now you cant use the hose to just quickly water something since without the male end plugged in it won't flow water. With the orbit version I usually use a pair of pliers and pull that auto-stop piece out.
