Arms have stopped rotation. How do I adjust to speed up rotation?


Sounds like lowered water pressure, or plugged inlet screen at sprinkler or hose, Or City has reduced pressure. Or trash in the outlet nozzles themselves, or It's been dropped and bent. Or?

I have 4 zones can run them manually; but they will not come on the automatic setting. Springs are strong; timer itself keeps accurate time. I did read inside the box about a "Silver Pin"...


If zones are not advancing, then 1) Clock motor is not rotating dial > replace clock motor, 2) on-off trippers are worn down > replace trippers, 3) or the day skipper is set to skip all days and all skipper pins are pushed down, 4) or sprinkler valve is bad.

The sprinkler timer dial rotates each 24 hours. The trippers cause sprinkler head to turn on zone 1 for example. Zone 1 waters until the dial rotates to part of dial with no tripper. Without a tripper on the dial, the timer turns off circuit to sprinkler. At this point, the sprinkler valve mechanically advances to zone 2 and waits for timer to turn off again. The timer does not advance sprinkler to next zone > the sprinkler valve is designed to advance each time circuit turns off. The timer just turns on and off. When next tripper rotates around, the timer turn on the circuit and zone 2 begins to water.

The silver pin inserted at 12midnight position is for advancing the day skipper wheel.

Have 5 199LMHS sprinklers with 3 prong base. 3 of them spray, but do not rotate. Very stiff with water pressure, but free with water turned off.. How can I repair?


sometimes if the water pressure to rotating sprinklers is too high, they won't work due to to much force ,, your system should be running between 50 and 70 PSI tops, if its more than that you need to add a pressure regulator to your system

The sprinklers do not rotate


Hi,
Check your water pressure... you need 40-60 PSI for it to work...

I need assistance with properly setting the water flow, range, and rotation of the 993hps Gilmour Impulse sprinkler and the 967hzs Impulse Spike Base Sprinkler. There were not directions with the products...


For some simple instructions check out the "additional information" section at http://www.gilmour.com/Watering/Hose-End/Sprinklers/Large-Coverage/Metal-Head-Impulse-.aspx. If your sprinkler doesn't rotate, ensure that you haven't lowered the water pressure by opening another faucet elsewhere. My sprinkler doesn't rotate as freely as it did when it was new, but it probably just needs to be taken apart and cleaned and greased.

Impulse sprinklers stick after cloclwise rotation; no return


i wouldbet it is a pressure related problem , can you isolate them so you are only running 1 at atime? at least reduce the number of sprinklers running at the same time just to test them, drop the number by1or2 and i`m sure your problem will be fixed youdoit
