3 Types Of Sprinklers Overview
There are only 3 types of Lawn Sprinkler heads. The main function for them is to water Lawn and vegetation.
1. Pop Up Sprinklers: spray in a fan pattern and are generally for smaller areas like park strip
2. Gear-Driven Rotors: have one stream and move back and forth covering a bigger lawn area. They spray from 20’-50’ and can be customized to spray in any given pattern. They can spin all the way up to 360 degrees.
3. Impact Rotors: have one stream coming out and move in a circle. The main benefit of an impact rotor is that it can take on dirty irrigation water with a lower chance of breaking and plugging up. They are less efficient and use more water, but use basic technology that makes them last much longer.
