A: Hello. There is no on/off valve. For setup, you would assemble the sprinkler and locate it on your lawn. With the hose faucet turned off, you would attach one end of the hose to the sprinkler and the other end to the faucet. When you open the faucet, the sprinkler will operate. You can adjust the arc of the irrigation and distance by adjusting the sprinkler head once it is operating. There is no on/off valve on the sprinkler, but I suppose you could buy one and add it to your hose.
A: You would turn on the water, and it should start the sprinkler.
A: Just open the water supply valve opposite the sprinkler.
A: Attach a hose, turn the water on and watch it water whatever area you are watering.
A: Once you have the hose attached turn the water on !!!!
A: There are two little tabs below the sprinkler head that look sort of like paper clips. To do a half circle they would approximately meet up to each other. You can watch the sprinkler progress and adjust accordingly. Either closer together or farther apart.
A: You may have a faulty sprinkler head. Please submit a warranty claim at melnor.com/contact/ or contact our customer service department at 1-877-283-0697 and we will take care of you.
A: It may be a bad sprinkler head. If you cannot make it work by hand, I would say the sprinkler head has something wrong with it.
A: I had the same experience with the second one I bought. I finally gave up and put it on full circle. It's much slower than the first but it does work that way.
A: I bought mine in July, after having a new well drilled and have no issues. It is remotely a manufactures flaw or low water pressure. Mine works great at 40-60 lbs water pressure.
A: Yes, using the metal adjustable stop plate near the top, you can adjust the spray distance.
A: I have found ways to limit the radius. Lowering the legs and lowering the water pressure to the sprayer. There is also a flat piece that can be moved to cover the spray nozzle which works well.
A: yes, it took only a short time to set up and connect to the water hose. large yard has complete watering coverage with just a turn of the faucet.
A: Yes. The hose for any sprinkler hose can be connected to any timer.
A: Yes it can, and they do sell the timers. I had mine on a timer all summer.
A: Sure it can and yes they do.
A: There is NO timer attached to it.
A: Yes,it can be set to a timer. That’s the way I use them. HD does sell timers
