What is an impact sprinkler?
An impact sprinkler is an irrigation device that uses a rotating arm to distribute water over a wide area. The mounting of the arm is typically on a pivot, which allows it to rotate in a circular pattern. What drives the arm is an impact mechanism, which causes it to rotate when water flows through it. As the arm rotates, it strikes a series of impactor pins. This causes the spraying of water to be out in a pattern. The water is usually delivered to the impact sprinkler through a flexible hose or pipe, and the sprinkler can be adjusted to cover a specific area or to rotate in a full circle. Impact sprinklers are commonly for irrigating lawns, gardens, and other outdoor areas. They are popular because they are inexpensive, easy to install, and adjustable to cover various watering patterns.

- Adjustability: Impact sprinklers can rotate in a full circle or cover a specific area, allowing you to tailor the irrigation to your needs.
- Durability: Impact sprinklers can withstand the outdoors and typically last for many seasons.
- Versatility: Impact sprinklers can be used on various surfaces, including grass, soil, and hardscapes, and they can be used to water plants of different sizes and types.
How does an impact sprinkler operate?
An impact sprinkler uses an impact mechanism to drive a spinning arm that throws water in a circular pattern. Here is a more detailed explanation of how an impact sprinkler works:
- Water is delivered to the impact sprinkler through a hose or pipe.
- The water flows through the sprinkler and activates the impact mechanism, typically located at the base of the sprinkler.
- The impact mechanism consists of a small weight attached to a spring. When water flows through the sprinkler, the weight is forced downward by the pressure of the water, compressing the spring.
- As the weight reaches the bottom of its travel, it is released, and the spring expands, causing the weight to rise again.
- As the weight rises, it strikes a lever or arm, which causes the spinning arm to rotate. The arm is typically mounted on a pivot, which allows it to rotate in a circular pattern.
- The water is thrown outward by the spinning arm as it rotates, watering the surrounding area.
- Depending on the user’s needs, the impact sprinkler can be adjusted to rotate in a full circle or cover a specific area.
- Water flowing through the sprinkler is controllable using a valve or other mechanism, allowing the user to adjust the amount of water delivered to the sprinkler.
