A quick and easy option for watering the lawn is with an oscillating sprinkler. This simplistic mechanism has been around since the late s and still going strong. The operation of an oscillating sprinkler looks straightforward with minimal moving parts to regulate the water. But while sprinklers can have issues specific to their particular model and manufacturer, there are several basic problems many oscillating sprinklers experience.

Oscillating lawn sprinklers distribute a rectangular path of water through holes in an arm that slowly moves from side to side. These above-ground sprinklers attach to a garden hose and have either a single dial or dual adjustment rings to control the distance and pattern of irrigation. Application of water to an open area of lawn is best on the largest width in both directions for maximum coverage in each swath. The spray width near concrete walkways and driveways is adjustable to decrease water waste and cost by wetting areas that do not have grass or plants. Connect a garden hose to a single dial oscillating lawn sprinkler. Stand on the end of the sprinkler that connects to the hose. Move the ring to the negative - direction to decrease the distance of water flow on the right side of the sprinkler.
