Gardena Standard Impulse Sprinkler
So happy with this sprinkler! We bought this for our large pie-shaped front yard and couldn't be happier with it. We went through numerous sprinklers with no luck - some had such small coverage areas, others clogged, tipped. This was quick to set up and was so powerful. Easily covers 50 feet with even spray.

One word .... WOW!
This is the 1st ever impulse sprinkler I've ever bought, and I don't know why I waited. This sprinkler is SUPER easy to setup, and has settings that allow you to control water flow (spray, or jet), as well as 10┬░ ~ 360┬░ adjustment. I am so impressed after using it for the 1st time just now, that I'm looking to get another one for my 2nd hose. I highly recommend this product. I rated Durability with 4 stars because I haven't had it long enough to honestly say how long it'll last...only time will tell, but it is solid looking and I feel it'll last years (OH and it has a 4 Year warranty), so must be pretty good.

Best sprinkler available at Canadian Tire
Don't bother with the Gardena Impulse Sprinkler. It's $4 cheaper, and looks very similar to this standard impulse model, but is inferior in several respects:
1 - Smaller coverage area than the "standard"
2 - Does NOT have the plastic side flap that disrupts the flow of water. Without it, the water sprays in a single narrow stream instead of spreading out to mist the entire yard.
Please note that if you have a lot of obstacles in your yard (i.e. bushes, trees) you may wish to consider the Gardena mini-zoom oscillator (fan spraying model) instead of this one.
This sprinkler can only adjust its head to a 30┬░ angle, and will not be able to spray water over your obstacles, whereas an oscillating fan will.
