How to Adjust a Toro 700 Series Sprinkler Head

A Toro 700 Series sprinkler head is easy to adjust, although its left reversing point remains stationary. The reversing point is the point along the sprinkler head's watering arc where it reverses direction, either clockwise to counterclockwise or counterclockwise to clockwise. Adjusting the left reversing point involves turning the sprinkler itself while adjusting the right reversing point of the sprinkler head involves a few tools. Set the Toro 700 Series sprinkler head at a point in your garden where the left side of the sprinkler's watering arc aligns with the left side of the area you need to water.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn on the water to the Toro 700 Series sprinkler head. Grip the sprinkler head and twist it to the reversing point of the same direction as the current movement of the head to see the limits of the current watering arc. For example, if the sprinkler head is moving clockwise then twist the head clockwise. If the sprinkler head is moving counterclockwise then move the head counterclockwise. Twisting the head in the opposite direction of its current movement can damage the drive mechanism of the sprinkler.

  2. 2

    Use a Super 700 Nozzle Tool and Wrench to turn the lock pin counterclockwise to align the slot with the "A" on top of the sprinkler head. This allows you to adjust the sprinkler head clockwise or counterclockwise as necessary.

  3. 3

    Decrease the watering arc of the Toro 700 Series sprinkler by turning the head to the right side of the watering arc. Push down and turn the sprinkler head counterclockwise to decrease and set the watering arc toward the left side of the watering area. Pull the sprinkler head upward and release.

  4. 4

    Increase the watering arc of the Toro 700 Series sprinkler by turning the nozzle counterclockwise to the left side of the watering arc. This is the stationary point of the watering arc. Push down and turn the sprinkler head clockwise to increase and set the watering arc toward the right side of the watering area. Pull the sprinkler head upward and release.

  5. 5

    Lock the sprinkler head in position using the Super 700 Nozzle Tool and Wrench by turning the lock pin clockwise until the slot aligns with "L" on top of the sprinkler head.

  6. 6

    Use a 1/16-inch hex key to turn the Spray Radius Adjustment Screw clockwise if you want to reduce the watering radius of the sprinkler head. Turning the Spray Radius Adjustment Screw clockwise also allows for greater diffusion of water when the sprinkler works at low pressure.
