Hi guys

I have this old Gardena Aquazoom

Today I bought two of these (returning them tomorrow)

Using the same supply the Gardena one is much better (covers a larger area ) What makes the difference ?

One more question
What is the difference between these two products (both Gilmore and as far as I can see identical specs)

https://www.rona.ca/en/product/oscillating-sprinkler-with-base-aqua-grey-20245026 this is on sale $42
https://www.rona.ca/en/product/oscillating-sprinkler-with-base-aqua-black-20245025 this one is $26

Looks like color is the only difference. Coverage distant on any sprinkler is usually determined by inlet size, spray arm diameter and nozzle size. Of course a new one can have debris from the manufacturing process that causing blockage. at the inlet, some have a washer with a debris screen that could be causing a restriction. One that covers more ground does not make it a better sprinkler, just a slightly different design.

This is awkward, but...
