    Comments about Gilmour® Programmable Impulse Sprinkler (196SPB):

    I use this in several areas in my yard that are different shapes, this helps adjust to what I need without having to move it multiple times. It takes a bit to figure out exactly how you want it for each application, but once you learn it, the prep time is not that long. It fit the bill for me, so sure.

    Great Impulse Sprinkler

      Best Uses

      • Watering the Lawn

      Comments about Gilmour® Programmable Impulse Sprinkler (196SPB):

      I've had other impulse sprinklers before but this is the best one yet. I've only had it about a month so now experience with the "ring" as some comments indicate. I keep it out of the sun when not in use so that might help. The thing I like most is you can adjust the spray pattern to cover any shape area to water. No more hitting the windows or spraying over the sidewalk and driveway. Love it.

        Comments about Gilmour® Programmable Impulse Sprinkler (196SPB):

        I have an irregular shaped lawn. I can cover all of my lawn at once without watering the sidewalk, patio and house too. It gives a lot of water so the watering time is reduced as well. Neighbor got one. I tried hers and bought my own the next day. Now I'm online looking where to buy more for the other parts of my yard so I don't have to change settings. I also place my hose on a timer and my watering is done for me! Love this sprinkler!

                    I have had several over the years and keep buying them. Can't be beat for covering an odd-shaped pattern. Sun will get to the plastic if you leave the sprinkler out all the time[...] I have had several ring replacements and a couple of other parts, too. This is a terrific product!

                    Takes some time to learn to use properly. Will not cover full 360 degrees, more like 320. Consider the Lifetime Replacement Policy: "A Gilmour product will provide complete satisfaction for the life of the product or it will be replaced free of charge." So when it quits working, they will not replace it free because its life has ended? Clever lawyer wrote that one!

                      I wore one of these out over several years and was fortunate enough to find one more 2 years ago. Now that I see these online, I'm ordering 4 more! Beats all other sprinklers that I have tried. Better with low water pressure than non-impulse sprinklers.

                      There is nothing on the market that compares to this sprinkler.
                      It is the best out there. It does everything. The inside ring can be adjusted for any position. The only negative is, it's plastic and after "several seasons" may crack or break. It's inexpensive enough to replace. I hope they never stop making this!
