The bottom is female, I use 1/2", but I think they come in 3/4" also.

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.

How do you clean or replace the dirt filter? Does the filter clog easily?

How do you clean or replace the dirt filter? Does the filter clog easily?
Asked by: alicat
Easy to clean the filter, it is on the bottom of the rotating shaft. Clogging depends on how clean your lines are. Bleed the water lines before installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saturn III Pop-up Gear Drive Some friends and I decided to help a woman in our neighborhood put in a automatic sprinkler system because her husband was dying with cancer. She was having a tough time taking care of him and dragging hose. The lawn was nearly dead when we started. We used the Saturn III head to cover all points of her corner yard, including the back yard. We overlapped everything, making sure there was plenty of coverage. The lawn that was almost dead came back in just a few months. She no longer has to drag hose. All though her husband died, and she has been a widow for several years now, the system (including the Orbit controller and valves) is very reliable and continues to save her time so she can work part time and spend time with the grandchildren. The lawn is no worry to her any longer. Her grandson cuts it every week and It almost takes care of itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Spray Pattern Owned product for a month, will update review if things change. This sprinkler has a minimum throw of 15'. If that fits your need, you'll be happy. The water drops are very big compared to the "standard" sprinkler heads, so it does better in windy conditions. If you adjust to throw longer than 20 or 25 feet, the spray becomes more of a solid stream to hit the longer distance. Adjusting it down to the 15' range it becomes more of a wide stream, doing a really good job of hitting the grass across the entire area, both near and far from the head. Have included a short video so you can see the stream for yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has good coverage and saves water The 2 gallon per minute nozzle covers a 25 foot radius circle and replaces several heads. Bonus nozzles can increase range to much larger area with up to 7 GPM. It is easy to set the arc and to change nozzles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I bought this sprinkler as a replacement for one just like it that I use on poles around my garden. The one that I had froze and cracked. Not sure why cause I drained it but oh well. Works very well and does that job that I need. Living in the UP of Michigan don't often need sprinklers but we do have our dry spells.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular! Great coverage area. I had a fixed sprinkler that wasn't quite reaching a couple of areas. I figured I'd take a chance on this one and it has gone above and beyond. I'm even considering capping off a couple of others because it's that good and covers such a wide area.
