irrigation sprinklers (best quality360° rotation)

Irrigation sprinklers definition. These are devices that aid in irrigation. They are designed in such a way that the sprinkler head throws water up in the air and then it comes back to the ground in tiny droplets that resemble rainfall while irrigating the lawn.

What is the sprinkler method of irrigation?
A sprinkler irrigation system involves the use of a pressurized pipe network in order to deliver water to sprinklers, nozzles, or jets that spray water into the air, which falls to the soil as an artificial rain.

Irrigation sprinklers can be used for residential, industrial, and agricultural usage. It is useful on uneven land where sufficient water is not available as well as on sandy soil. The perpendicular pipes, having rotating nozzles on top, are joined to the main pipeline at regular intervals. When water is pressurized through the main pipe it escapes from the rotating nozzles. It gets sprinkled on the crop. In sprinkler or overhead irrigation, water is piped to one more central location within the field and distributed by overhead high-pressure sprinklers or guns.

How long should you run  irrigation sprinklers?

When using a sprinkler for irrigation it is recommended that that the sprinklers are left running until the ground is fully soaked and the plant roots are saturated. This type of watering using irrigation sprinkler system can take about half an hour or a few minutes more. Once this is achieved it is important for one to repeat the process at least twice a week in order to ensure that the plants are getting enough nourishment.

By selecting the right nozzle size and pressure, a sprinkler can be controlled for the amount of water to be applied and the area to be covered.

How do I know the number of sprinklers that i need in my land?

Considering the distance between each sprinkler head, they should distribute water at a circumference of 8 feet all round. Proceed to place the sprinklers 4 feet apart in order to ensure that every part of the lawn gets watered. Whatever the maximum spray distance of the sprinkler head, divide it in half to find out how far apart to place your sprinklers.
