    Have you tried altering the pressure of the water going to it? It may need you to tweak it a bit. I suggest trying to turn it down and see if that improves performance.

    Pull it out and inspect make sure the wheels all turn freely and the tail is installed properly. Make sure the hose is the proper length and not obstructed.

    There is a little nipple and the back bottom that can be adjusted. It may have got knocked to the side which would make it do that.
