New sprinkler install

Re: New sprinkler install

Hi - looking for some guidance - I currently have a pop-up impact sprinkler installed in one corner of my yard. I'm happy with the throw but as suggested above I'm getting the overspray (front porch, windows etc). My question - can I get the same throw from a gear driven popup or wll I need to put several in (which would require more plumbing and a control system to alternate between them).
Thanks in advance.

Re: New sprinkler install

I believe you should change to pop ups you would save on water and you would not be watering concrete .it is a good idea that you have it just needs refing all you need to do is measure your yard and draw to scale and the take a 10 lt bucket and time how many seconds to fill that bucket .

eg if it takes 20secs to fill formula (60secs/20)x10lits =30lts min then you then check the pop ups  what distance they do and how many ltsper min usesd then you work out how man sprinklers you can use at once
