Questions & Answers

Pop-up or Fixed?

The name/title of this item says "Pop-Up" Gear-Drive but in the Specifications it says that it is "Fixed". Which is true??

I understand how to adjust the arc and distance but how do I adjust WHERE the sprinkler sprays?

I don't want to dig it back up and un-thread it some to get it to face the "right" way.
Asked by: doitmyselfer
Read the directions, which are under the label on the body.

Whats the Gallons per minute rate on this head?
Asked by: sillygardener
Depends on your water flow and pressure. I am currently getting about 2.75 gallons per head but I believe they state the range from 1 to 3 gallons.

What size poly pipe works with this head?

Asked by: Slim
I am using a header at 1.5 inches and my runs with 1/2" poly pipe. I am pulling from my pond with a dedicated pump so my header MAY be bigger than you would need but the 1/2" should be fine for the runs.

Saturn III Plastic Pop-Up Gear-Drive Sprinkler Head is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 163.

I first replaced 8 of the older version of these that had been in my yard for about 15 years with another major brand of pop-ups. They were problematic in that they would stick down and were very unreliable (my water pressure is 55 lbs.) so I changed to these and all is good, no problems at all. These are easy to set & put out a flatter, wider stream of water with better coverage.

Specifically after a period of time <> 3 months the sprinkler can no longer be adjusted for arc. Only 360 degrees is functional. I had liked the sprinkler for the ease of setting arc and distance, but they don't last. Save your money and buy a more reliable sprinkler!

It would be convenient if there were an additional nozzle or two included (rather than expensive and purchased separately) so that the spray could be better tailored to suit varying conditions.

Those I don’t believe I would give one star. Over all it is done and hopefully spring will bring a much better system than the one installed.
