- How to use impact sprinklers
During irrigation, consider crops that are not susceptible to foliage fungal infections as a result of wetness on their leaves. Drip irrigate for tomato, peppers, potato, chili, and other solanaceous crops. This is to avoid excess moisture on their leaves because they quickly succumb to leaf fungal infections as a result of wetness. Certain bean types, snow-peas, and mangetout too will easily get leaf fungal infections under sprinklers.
Common food crops such as; onion, cabbage, grass, and legume pastures. Others are; garlic, carrot, maize, lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, watermelon, orchards, forestry crops. Many others will be fine under this irrigation system.
- How do impact sprinklers work?
The sprinkler head is driven in a circular motion by the force of the outgoing water. This head is pivoted on a bearing on top of its threaded attachment nut.
- Which is the best impact sprinkler in Kenya?
Brass metallic impact sprinklers are the best because they last longer, they do not rust and have less mechanical challenges as compared to plastic ones.
- What pump size do I need for a sprinkler system?
Check the head of your sprinkler and the flow output rate, then select a pump that has 3 times the head/ lift, and the total flow rate of the sprinklers.
- Why do impact sprinklers get stuck?
Entry of foreign particles in the water to the sprinkler clogging the neck. Low water pressure such that there isn’t enough pressure created to move the head or too much pressure which jams the sprinkler.
Beyond these sizes, we supply the more powerful rain gun sprinklers. The nozzle diameter size of the farm sprinklers is 0.4mm, 0.6mm, and 0.8mm respectively for 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, and 1inch.
Because of their short irrigation diameter and low water discharge volume, impact sprinklers are designed for small farms and short crops. During installation, plastic PVC and HDPE, canvas delivery or metallic GI pipes drive water to the sprinkler from a source. The choice between a plastic one and a metallic sprinkler is on the farmer’s budget. The latter has a longer usable lifespan, is susceptible to damage but costs more. Plastic versions are easier to handle, carry and operate. They cost less but are easily damaged and so have a shorter usable lifespan.
