An oscillating sprinkler is versatile - being effective on small lawns and large lawns alike.  Take note of the column above that indicates "Area" above. This number reflects the max area that the sprinkler can get to in a single placement, but all of these oscillating sprinklers can be adjusted for smaller or unusual areas.

Oscillating sprinklers have light weight aluminum spray bars with a distinct number of jets (specified in the chart above). When you hook the sprinkler to a garden hose or other water supply, the spray bars of this sprinkler move back and forth. The back and forth motion provides a spray of water out onto your lawn in a square or rectangular pattern. By turning a knob one way or the other, you can adjust the spray of the water to meet your lawn's exact watering needs. 

To get the coverage areas specified in the chart above, use at least a 5/8" garden hose and have a minimum of 40 psi water pressure available, smaller hoses or less pressure may reduce coverage significantly.

The best time to turn your oscillating sprinkler on and water your lawn is between the hours of five to ten o'clock in the morning.
