Do you need to decide which type of sprinkler irrigation system is right for you, but don’t know where to begin? The system that will work best for you depends on a number of factors including the size of your yard and type of landscaping. Before you make a decision, learn about the different types of sprinkler irrigation systems:
Traditional Spray Systems
This is one of the sprinkler irrigation systems that probably comes to mind when you think of watering your lawn. The traditional spray system uses a pop-up head to spray water in the area surrounding it. It can typically be set to spray in a full circle, half circle or quarter circle. Although homeowners do appreciate the widespread water coverage that these sprinkler irrigation systems provide, they are not as efficient as other types and therefore not as popular. These systems actually spray too much water, so much in fact that the ground cannot absorb it fast enough, leading to wasted water. If you do choose this system, be sure that each sprinkler head is installed at a distance that allows it to cover the area that the next closest head does not.
