Water Sprinkler
Water Sprinkler
There are a wide variety of Water Sprinkler types on the market today but they fall into two
categories: portable and permanent.

The five most common portable Water Sprinkler types are:

There are three permanent Water Sprinkler types: spray heads, rotary heads, and bubblers.
Oscillating - Water is sent high in the air, sweeping back and forth in a wave
pattern. Best suited to open areas unobstructed by tree branches.

Rotating - Usually has two or three arms or a baffle that spins, spraying water in
a circular, square, or rectangular pattern. Gives the least uniform coverage.
Stationary - Water shoots through a pattern of holes from the top of sprinkler. As
with rotating sprinklers, these administer water unevenly.
Impulse - Sends out strong bursts of water in a circle or any part of a circle. Can
cover a large area from one position. Is considered to have the most efficient
and uniform coverage of portable sprinklers.

Traveling - The most expensive of portable sprinklers, resembles a tractor that
travels along the path of a garden hose that is laid out on the lawn. Resembles a
rotating sprinkler but provides more even coverage as it travels the area to be
watered.
Spray heads emit a fixed spray and are suited to small areas. They typically
apply water in a fan-like spray, from 4 to 17-foot radius. The pattern is
determined by the type of nozzle on the head.
Rotary heads, or rotors, have heads that rotate as they shoot streams of water.
Because they cover more area than spray heads, about a 45-foot radius, they are better suited to larger, flatter areas.
Bubblers, or flood heads, emit a downward spray of water that soaks the ground beneath them. They are ideal for watering trees, shrubs, and planters that
require the root zone to receive water but the leaves remain dry.
