Types Of Sprinkler Systems

Lawn sprinkler systems in Toronto are one of the essentials for houses with yards. Pieces of land that do not get enough water on them need sprinklers. Sprinklers ensure that the grass and plants get enough water daily for them to grow properly. If sprinklers did not exist, then we would have to water the yard almost every day manually. Although contrary to common belief there are different types of sprinklers for different situations. Here are some of the type of sprinklers that you may need for your house.   

 Sprinkler Systems 

The first type of sprinkler is called the raindrop low flow sprinkler. This is one of the more conservative types of sprinkler that focuses more on conserving water but allowing the grass to be watered enough for it to have the daily nutrients it needs from the water. This sprinkler system has a psi of 25 and will emit no more than 30 gallons of water per hour. This system though not gushing out a lot of water will cover a whopping 600 square feet. This kit includes 13 sprinklers, tubing, hoses, and other materials needed for the installation of the sprinkler system. This is also one of the more expensive choices compared to other sprinklers, coming at a price of $36.  

Another type of sprinkler system is called the Hunter MPR 40. This type of sprinkler makes use of rotary nozzles which reduce water waste by shooting out spinning streams of water instead of the usual misty spray emitted from other sprinkler systems. This sprinkler makes for a more organized irrigation, and a plus from this is that the big droplets of water will surely reach the roots because it would be unlikely for them to evaporate before reaching those points. This sprinkler system works at a low pressure and has wipers that keep objects away from the nozzle and is at a constant 40 psi no matter what. The price of this sprinkler system varies to as low as $5 to a high of $25 which is perfect for all budgets.  

The rain bird rotary nozzles is another popular choice of sprinkler systems. This sprinkler has various nozzles that shoot out water in a sort of circular motion. This sprinkler system uses 60% less water than spray nozzles and operates at a psi of 20. This sprinkler system has an adjustable radius which makes it good for small or big pieces of land that needs to be watered. It also has different water patterns to focus more on the lawn and not the road.   

These are some of the sprinklers that you may encounter when shopping for a sprinkler. Remember that sprinklers are essential if you have a lawn because if they are not properly watered, then they will slowly fade and change from an earthy green to a dark brown. Water preservation should be a factor when you pick out the sprinkler system because water is important and we should learn to be more conservative about it.
