Q:How do you turn it on?
by|Jul 4, 2022
5 Answers
Answer This Question

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.

            Q:How do i get thr sprinkler head set for half circleL
            by|Aug 8, 2021
            5 Answers
            Answer This Question

            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.

              by|Jul 25, 2022

                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.

                by|Aug 9, 2021

                  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.

                  by|Nov 2, 2021

                  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.

                    Q:Can this spring radius be controlled?

                    3 Answers
                    Answer This Question

                    A:  Yes, using the metal adjustable stop plate near the top, you can adjust the spray distance.

                    by|Aug 9, 2021

                      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.

                      by|Aug 14, 2021

                        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.

                                  If you're tempted to ignore negative reviews and buy this anyways (like me) SAVE YOURSELF! The range of this sprinkler is 10 ft on each side, totaling in a 20 ft diameter.... Compared to the "85-90ft" range it's supposed to be getting. It doesn't come remotely close. Returning and mad I wasted my time. I'll buy the cheap kind from now on.

                                    Poorly made and absolute junk
                                    I purchased this in the fall of 20. It worked fine, but in early summer of 21 oscillation of the sprinkler stopped. Seems the spring isn't strong enough. My neighbor reports the same issue with his. Needing to replace the head made me remove the hose from the sprinkler. Except that it was rusted solid. Two vice grips in the opposite direction could not budge this. When I tried to put a big of leverage on it, the whole sprinkler "exploded". For $49, I expected better.

                                          Sprinkler on a camera tripod. What will they think of next? So cool I bought two!
                                          The tripod idea is awesome. The water spray is easy to adjust and flexible. - Easy to set the oscillation's back and forth sweep - It can oscillate 360 degrees (flip out that paperclip-shaped "U" under the sprinkler head) - There's a small deflector and screw to cut down the spray from going so far and make it spread a bit more - The tripod legs are kept in place using friction clips that hold well, nothing to turn/tighten, quick to change the height - Great height adjustment to get this squirting over your bushes or underneath branches...or angled - Easy to move around, light, is relatively stable in the wind The only small downside for quality is the screw on the feed pipe, the one that holds the collar with the bars that hold the legs apart. This rusts and can get stuck, even after only a couple of months. You'll want to use some preventative on that. As with any sprinkler, how well it waters depends on your water volume/pressure. I was able to get a rather "light rain" out of mine, so I just left it on longer. In the end the new grass is all green, and that's what matters.

                                            Perfect
                                            bought it yesterday. I am tired of small on the ground sprinklers that don't cover large areas. I don't have huge yard but I also don't want to keep moving the sprinkler. this is awesome, it's steady, adjustable height and pattern, and easy yobuse. it's a must if you don't have a sprinkler system.

                                              Useless except for full rotation - sprays extra streams to side
                                              Big disappointment. Typically, impact sprinklers can be set up near a deck and spray e.g. a quarter or half circle, but 2 of these sprinklers that I got also spray random streams to the side, so this thing can only be used for full circles. To water a 1/4 circle I would have to keep it closer to stationary with a resulting uneven spray pattern with over-watered and under-watered areas. This is nothing that can be adjusted.

                                                Hose coupling is defective after minimal usage
                                                the hose coupling has loosened to the point where this is almost non-operational as pressure is minimal because of the defect in the coupling. I used this product maybe 10 times and the coupling has failed. No water should escape this area for a product of this price point. There is no way to retighten either. Why they can't design this to hold is beyond me. I have contacted Melnor and we will see if they stand behind their product. Outside of this issue it is a good product but I can not recommend it or rate it higher than 1 star until this issue is resolved.
