Most irrigation systems use one of two types of sprinkler heads – rotary or spray – to deliver the precise application of water to a landscape. Spray heads are most common and, therefore, what comes to mind when you think of a sprinkler head. Irrigation spray heads water grass and turf, flower beds, garden beds, and shrubs, ensuring healthy landscapes year-round. These sprinkler heads come in sizes between 2” – 12”, referring to the height the riser “pops-up” from the turf, and are usually spaced about 15’ apart.
An irrigation spray head offers a way to water efficiently, allowing better management of outdoor water use and costs, as well as water-related liability concerns and damage to hardscapes and landscapes. Reduce maintenance costs for a property as you improve plant and turf life by using an irrigation system with smart water spray heads and an automated watering method to save precious resources, time, and money.
Pressure-regulating irrigation sprays are part of a lineup of smart water system solutions that help residential homeowners and commercial property managers control water resources by improving the efficiency of their irrigation systems. Using water-saving technology, like pressure-regulating irrigation sprays and sprinkler heads, helps reduce water use as well as improve water retention in the soil. Pressure-regulating heads have a built-in pressure regulator that maintains an optimal pressure, usually 30 psi, that minimizes over-pressurization that can lead to misting, uneven watering, and water loss.
