I got 2 of the Orbit/Sunmate Zinc Impact Sprinkler With Zinc Spike Base
from home depot.
tried to link up the 2 metal sprinklers with 2 other plastic
sprinklers. that didn't work too well due to water pressure issues.
the water wasn't shooting far enough. looks like the max I can set it up
is 2 per water faucet.
so, I hooked up the 2 metal sprinkers on another hose line linked
together in seperate faucet. one of them worked fine, I guess. that
particular one did get stuck in one position in one direction instead of
180° as I had set it. I adjusted the clips a bit, it started working
again. however, the 2nd sprinkler, I've no clue how to fix this. it is
shooting water, but it is not moving in a circular motion, the pins are
up and not in contact with the clips.
do I have a bad head on the 2nd sprinkler? I didn't try it to see if it
works on single hose line.
Try reversing the second setup. i.e. Switch the two metal sprinklers on
that one line. Does the further one work better, or the same?
If the same, you don't have enough water pressure to work two sprinklers
no matter how many faucets you use. Are you on city water or well water?
I know my well water pressure is low, so much so that I could never get
a shower massage head to work other than a straight shower spray, even
if no other water is being used at the time. It has been like this since
the house was brand new.
I have a similar issue because the spigot on the front of my house works at
street pressure, while the one at the back uses water that has had its
pressure reduced by the house's pressure regulator.
You might try raising your water pressure if you can find the regulator.
