If you’re considering installing a home sprinkler system, you may be wondering what kinds are available. Here are a few of the main types to consider.

Impact Rotor

The Impact Rotor is a traditional style of sprinkler that is easy to use and has been around for a long time. These sprinklers are incredibly durable and can work well in large areas that are not very close together. They are also very effective at saving water and are a good choice for homeowners who want to maintain a green lawn all summer long. These sprinklers have been designed to work smoothly without shaking or wobbling, and they also have excellent control over the flow of the water.

Gear-Driven Rotor

Gear-Driven Rotors are one of the most popular sprinkler heads for residential properties. They offer a number of benefits over impact sprinklers, including less maintenance and a variety of spray patterns. They also come in a wide range of sizes and nozzles. Many models feature a radius reduction screw, which can be turned to break up the stream at the nozzle and reduce coverage area. These rotors are typically available with a pop-up riser that lifts the nozzle above ground when it is in operation, then retracts it back into the body after irrigation is complete. Some pop-up rotors also have stainless steel sleeves around the riser to protect it from sharp sand particles that could damage the plastic.

Fixed Spray

Fixed spray sprinklers are a good choice for watering smaller lawns, beds with ground covers and shrubbery. They produce a tight, constant fan of water that spans 5-15 feet. They are easy to install and adjust, and they have a very efficient even spray pattern. They work well for small areas and are a great value. You can also find fixed-spray heads with adjustable spray patterns that you can customize according to your specific needs. The type of sprinkler that is best for your yard will depend on a few factors, including the plants you have and the climate you live in.

Rotating Head

The Rotating Head is a type of sprinkler that rotates around the nozzle to spray water. This style of sprinkler is great for covering large areas, and it can be used in residential or commercial settings. When shopping for a Rotating Head, make sure to consider the climate in which you live and the plants that grow there. Different kinds of plants require different amounts of water, so it’s important to choose a sprinkler head that will deliver the proper amount of water to support healthy growth. Also, remember to look for water-saving heads that use less water than other types of heads. However, you need to be careful with this because some high-efficiency heads may not give your lawn the water it needs and may cause runoff, which can carry chemicals into local rivers and streams.
