Water Sprinkler System

Just a short walk through a home improvement store reveals several types of water sprinkler options. You might choose small systems that work with a water hose to larger sprinkler systems that are installed a part of the landscape. Either way, the types and how they work will vary – but one thing remains the same – they will all get your lawn wet.

But how do you determine which water sprinkler system is best for your needs? After all, you don’t need a huge system if you have a small yard! Here are a few tips to help you make a decision about which type of irrigation system will best meet your needs.

  • Remember that it is not just about the product itself, but about the service behind the product.
  • Be sure to ask as many questions as possible about a particular system so you can determine its range and any special features before you get it installed. One of the most common sprinkler features is a timer so that you can ensure that your sprinkler does not run unnecessarily. There are 3 main types of timers – an automatic one that allows you to set it for a specific time; the flow timer which allows you to set how long and heavy the water runs and an automatic shutoff valve that is designed to keep your yard from getting waterlogged.
  • Find out what type of soil you have, as some types of soil do better with specific types of sprinklers.
  • Where is your water source located? Some types of systems might do better with a particular layout.
  • Make sure the system can be winterized – especially if it is a sprinkler system that has pipes underground!
  • Have a good understanding of the types of water sprinkler systems. The common types are fixed, drip, oscillating, impact, rotating, sprinkler hoses, traveling, and in-ground.
