There are a few
items to consider when adjusting a spray pattern on a lawn
popup or rotary sprinkler head:
How far do you
want the water to go? This is adjusted with the set screw that
the water travels by. Turning this screw "in" will shorten the
How diffused do
you want the pattern to be? This is also adjusted with the
same set screw as described above.
How much water
flow do you want to travel through the spray nozzle? This is
somewhat dependent upon how much water volume you have at your
disposal. You could not, for instance, put 3 4 gpm nozzles on
a 3 head zone that only has 5 gpm available. At any rate, the
water flow can be controlled with the nozzle, which is located at
the water's exit point on the rotary sprinkler head.
At What angle do
you want the water stream to travel? This is determined in
part by the type of nozzle you have installed. You can get low
angle nozzles, for instance, if you want to have the water stream
travel closer to the ground.
What spray path
do you want? Do you want the nozzle to shoot out the water
spray in a complete circle, a half circle, quarter, or custom?
This is determined by a few factors and can be adjusted with the
manufacturer's specific tools. With proper setting, the
optimal surface area of the target watering area is irrigated while
avoiding wasting water on areas such as walkways or driveways.
