Butterfly sprinklers work when positioned upright, or upside down. Upright when they’re standing on the ground for normal irrigation. Upside down when set in a greenhouse, or open field crop to provide humidity to a mature crop or seedlings. This upside down placement is also for keeping plant foliage moist, or for overhead irrigation.

They deliver irrigation water through a 1/2″ tubing to a nozzle attached to risers. They have small sized droplets with good uniformity of coverage, and  lower precipitation rate.

How to space butterfly sprinklers

Micro sprinklers placement is in such a manner that the sprays overlap. If for instance the irrigation diameter is radius is 3.5M, the distance between micro sprinklers will be 5.25M. This ensures that there are no dry spots in between. An overlap ensures full coverage particularly for lawns, hedges or very closely spaced crops.

How to use it

Irrigate for 30 to 40 minutes to achieve sufficient wetness before moving the sprinklers to another section of the garden. They spray under gravity pressure, if one is irrigating with a few units. This makes them easy to work with in many locations where a water pump is not available.
