Are rotary sprinklers better?

Generally, rotor heads are the better choice for larger areas of turf. They have a low precipitation rate, so they will evenly cover more area over a longer period of time. This is ideal for sloped areas because it allows more time for water absorption.

How rotary sprinklers work?

A rotor irrigation system starts with water entering the sprinkler from the water source. The water runs through a filter and flows through a turbine. The flow of the water causes the turbine to move and causes the gears in the sprinkler to rotate. The water travels up the sprinkler and out into your garden.

What is a rotary sprinkler?

A rotary sprinkler is part of a lawn irrigation system. It consists of one or more rounded heads driven into the lawn using metal spikes. Each head is designed to automatically rotate 360 degrees, spraying water through a series of holes around the sprinkler’s diameter.

What is a rotor sprinkler head?

Rotor Head These are the heads that when they’re operating, have the large stream of water that comes out of them and they have the turret that rotates from side-to-side. These heads are generally used for larger landscape areas because they have an average radius of throw between 15 and 50 feet.

Do you have to run rotary sprinklers longer?

Spray heads typically put out about 3-5 times as much water as a rotor head. This can be deceiving as the rotor has a larger stream, but because of the rotation it takes several turns to equal the amount of output of a spray head. A good rule of thumb is to run rotors 3-5 times longer than spray heads.

How long should I water my rotary sprinkler?

1. Water Thoroughly: Rotor zones should run for about 30-40 minutes per zone and spray zones 10-15 minutes per zone. 2. Water Frequently : Sod areas should be watered at least 2 or 3 times daily for the first two weeks.
