Can you set this up with a hose timer? Thanks in advance!

Asked by Help October 23, 2013

We've used on two types of hose timers. One is battery powered and turns the water on, then off at the specified times. The other is turned on manually by twisting a spring-loaded dial to a desired no. of watering minutes and then the water is shut off as the timer reaches zero. It doesn't care how the water gets to it or what turns the water on, just needs sufficient water supply (pressure and flowrate) to work. Pretty happy with ours, if it breaks, will purchase another. Midway through our second season now.

What is the range of this -width and depth. I need a sprinkler to cover 20' wide by 10'

Asked by Gene May 27, 2013

We set ours up in the middle of our 28 ft x 23 ft vegetable garden and have the four lines of the "box" set far inboard of maximum to keep from watering the grass far beyond the garden. And, our well pump water pressure is on at 30psi and off at around 50 psi, and I doubt your pressure is any lower than that. Covering your 20' by 10' will be no problem, unless you have a hard time keeping it DOWN to only 10' lol. In that case you would simply turn down the flow control valve.

Yes. Very similar to our well pump's on/off pressure setting. We're well into our 2nd season now using this to water our vegetable garden. Don't expect to get nearly the advertised 4500 sq. ft. at that pressure. Ours is set up in the middle of our small vegetable garden, only 28 x 23 feet, so we're watering only 644 sq ft. But all four settings on length and width are set very narrow, far from the max range available. I know this could easily double or triple (or more?) the area we're watering if we opened all four settings full-wide.

Can this be connected in series with other sprinklers? If not....are there ANY sprinklers like this that can be connected in series?

Asked by Skip April 23, 2014

Answers

Due to the loss of pressure, per subsequent sprinkler, this is not advised nor possible. It stops the oscillating. Consider lawn or pulsating sprinklers for coverage, multiple hoses and sprinklers via a 4 way hose splitter for varied areas, or moving a single unit as needed every 15-30 minutes.

Amount of water pressure + oscilation speed for the back and forth motion

With my current oscillating sprinkler i can have it stop halfway through the arc so if I'm against my fence it doesn't pass it. Half an arc.

Asked by Whonosl April 29, 2018

Yes. Do you see the circular yellow ring on the right side of the roll/bar in the picture? It's split into two rings with a tab attached on each ring. You set them to how far you want to have the spray to oscilate forward and back by moving each yellow ring with the end tabs to signify the end osculation mark. You have to monitor them to judge how far you want the sweeping to end and start while it's spraying (running) and yes you will get wet while adjusting them... that's half of the fun part on a hot, hot, hot day.

My sprinkler has plenty of output, but it has stopped oscillating. How can I fix this?

Are the 2 yellow tabs together? On the water connection end? spread them apart Should return to working

What is minimum PSI? What pump do I need?

Asked by jhnlmn August 23, 2014

Answers

I get 65 psi from my well tank. The sprinkler is adjustable fan and distance. I don't use a pump My well pump keeps my pressure tank at 65 psi.

How much water does this output an hour? In inches?

Asked by Kyle August 14, 2017

Answers

0.15” - Varies. If you’re covering the advertised 3900 ft^2, and have a constant 60 PSIG of water pressure, it will take 3 hours and 23 minutes to achieve 1/2” of water coverage (1215 gallons of water @ 6.0 gpm).

Disappointed
The sprinkler started off great and was working well. Late August I noticed the spray patterns started to cross. I cleaned them with the tool that came with the sprinkler. They still cross over causing un even coverage. Also the tabs to stop the sprinkler don’t always work and it will go full distance back and forth.

Even though there were a couple of not so nice reviews, I purchased it anyway. My grass has gone from brown to green. I love how it covers a large area. One of my best purchases so far. I would buy it again.

Great product for the price... for a season. Sufficient controls for needed lawn coverage. Excellent spray coverage with good water pressure. Durability in summer is in question. I use this sprinkler with my automatic sprinkler control and the nozzles deteriorate over time, where cleaning to spray nozzles will destroy them. Apparently you have to keep the sprinkler out of the sun for extended periods of time for them to last. I own 8 of these sprinklers and had to replace 4 of them in the last two years.

The Melnor 4500 Deluxe Turbo Oscillating Sprinkler though plastic is not like the cheap plastic & aluminum tube versions, the difference, these work & they work good. We have low water pressure & the other versions may oscillate or may go halfway & stop, but the 4500 Deluxe do what they're suppose to, they work, are great & covers very good. The adjustment features is great if your wanting to put the water on the spot that needs it, not the house, road, sidewalk or the roses but, on the grass.

Poor Spray Coverage
Very disappointed in this product. The max spray distance is sub par and does not get anywhere close to 4500 sq ft of coverage on my 3/4” hose. I even exchanged it to make sure I didn’t have a defective model and same issue. I also have a Melnor 3000sq ft sprinkler for my 5/8” hose and the max spray distance is much farther and easily outperforms the 4500 sq ft sprinkler. I checked the connections on my hose and there are no kinks or leaks. I even put the 3000 sq ft sprinkler on my 3/4” hose and it works fantastic. The width and range controls work well on the 4500 deluxe turbo but the spray distance/coverage is still very disappointing. I will definitely be returning this product

Width Selection
I was very happy with this sprinkler up until the plastic tabs that allow the user to adjust the width of the water broke off. They got very brittle and snapped right off when I tried to adjust it. I have two of these same sprinklers and it has happened to both.

So far so good
I really like this sprinkler. I have payed more for better quality. That just doesn’t work out. They are hard to control or aft a while the leak like crazy where you hook the hose up, or the adjustment paets dont take direcect sun very well. And then i end up watering the sidewalk or driveway. The nozzles are very easy to adjust. You can go square or rectangle. The range varies by the city water pressure. I have noticed this durring heavey watering times of the day. As well as light times of the day. I do have an irrigation system and it is effected the same way. (This is for my larger areas). I do recommend this product. I have been using it alot with my new sod area. I use a guage to see the water application, and amounts. It works very well. It is easy to set up and change
