Impulse sprinklers stick after cloclwise rotation; no return

I have a some Rainbird impulse in ground sprinklers that stick after they complete the clockwise rotation. They will not rebound and occilate back counter clockwise. The "hangy-downy" thing that looks a bit like a paper clip touches the adjuster clip arm but will not trip backwards and make the sprinkler head rotate back counter clockwise. The water pressure appears to be very good. If I stick my finger in front of the piece that catches water (the "chck, chck, chck, sound maker that scatters water) and cause it to travel less distance, the sprinkler gains more strength and trips the reverse mechanism.

How can I fix them so that they work properly and travel both clockwise and counter clockwise without hanging up or getting stuck?

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

It could be not enough water pressure, dirt on the shaft or it is worn out assuming the parts are all there. They are not very expensive you might just want to buy a new one.

What is an impulse sealer?


An impulse sealer heat-seals objects by sending high current on impulse to a heater ribbon, equipped on the surface of the heat-sealing blade, to generate heat that enables thermal-sealing through thermal conductivity. The section to be sealed is placed between the heat-sealing blades, pressed and thermal-fused when current and heat are delivered on impulse through the heater ribbon. After the current stops the seal remains under pressure to cool and to give it a clean finish.

I have a gilmour 193spb polymer impulse sprinkler. It won't rotate anymore by itself. If I turn it to one side it will rotate to the other side, but wont trip to rotate back automatically.


Yea. Join the club. One day you and I both might purchase a better sprinkler. That way it might be worth the cost of a gallon of CLR (calcium/lime/rust remover) to soak them in which should fix the problem.
We could have/should have, but might never blow them out to remove all water remains before storing them for the winter.
:o).

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.
