What is a Pop-up Sprinkler?

A pop-up sprinkler is a simple sprinkler head type that is designed to work best in lawns and other compound grass irrigation. Due to its higher efficiency and ease of automation, it is preferred for use in providing ample water to your lawn field.

How Pop-Up Sprinklers Emit Water

The pop-up sprinkler device relies on high pressure to function and thus you need a pump. A controller is also essential to control the system for automatic start and stop of irrigation. Pop up sprinklers are designed to release water in high-pressure rain forms that come in a circular pattern. The Pop-up feature allows the sprinkler to rise and release water and retract back after irrigation. Pop-up sprinklers

Properties of a Pop-Up Sprinkler

A lawn sprinkler has several features that make it suitable for irrigating lawn fields. They include;
  • Underground Installation – They are mounted underground, and the sprinkler head is made to protrude above the surface.
  • Spring – The sprinkler head contains a spring that enables it to rise and retract back as during irrigation.
  • Material – Plastic body surface or stainless-steel materials. The plastic and steel materials are hard, non-corrosive, and durable. They Can withstand harsh weather conditions and high pressure of water.
  • Spray radius – This refers to the distance of coverage that a sprinkler can spray water on your lawn field. It varies as per the size and model of the pop-up sprinkler between 0.5 m to 4 m.
  • Nozzles – nozzles are the small opening of the sprinkler heads that release water in thin sprays. Sprinkler nozzles range between 6 to 12 as per the size of the sprinkler head.
  • Pressure Rating – pressure rates for different levels of sprinkler heads are not the same but can be in the same specific range. Ranges from 20 to 30 Psi and not exceeding 70 psi for high-pressure lawn sprinklers.
  • Spray Pattern Adjustment – Describes the angle or manner in which a sprinkler releases water. Can be Half circle, Quarter Circle, or full-circle rotation depending on the type of sprinkler. You can also increase or decrease the arc.
