Pop-up sprinklers distribute water evenly over gardens and lawn surfaces, which makes them a great option in many environments. At The Landscape Store, we supply many pop-up sprinkler components, including high-quality RainBird sprinkler systems. These sprinklers function like natural rain, with reliable water access to help your gardens and lawns look pristine.
We proudly serve retail and trade customers from the North Shore to the rest of Australia and beyond. Browse our website or contact our team for friendly advice today!
How long should I run my pop-up sprinklers?
Pop-up sprinklers can vary greatly, with recommended running times related to plantings and water flow rates. For example, while a typical pop-up system with a rate of 9 litres per minute should run for 10-15 minutes each time, rotator sprinklers and other designs can run for 30-40 minutes at just 2.5 litres per minute.
How far apart do you put pop-up sprinklers?
Pop-up sprinklers should be spaced evenly at distances equivalent to their water throw radius. Spray from pop-up sprinkler heads should reach the head of the next unit. For example, if your sprinkler has a 2-metre radius, you should place your sprinklers two metres apart so that throws meet without extensive overlapping.
How much pressure do pop-up sprinklers need?
Pop-up sprinklers work best with water pressure between 200 and 350 kPa. This is optimal, as it enables uniform water spray patterns and efficient water use. However, correct water pressure settings can change between components and systems based on design specifications.
