Pop up sprinklers
Grekkon Limited’s pop up sprinklers are suitable for lawns, parks, golf courses and gardens of different sizes. These sprinkles role is to provide uniform water to all plants. They are built using raisers that are designed to ‘pop up’ to irrigate 2 to 12 inches above ground under high water pressure. Once the irrigation cycle is complete, decreasing water pressure causes the riser to retract back to its housing at ground level. A lawn mower cannot damage them in their retracted position because its protected.
Our pop up sprinklers come with a built in debris filter, and a robust gear drive which turns the sprinkler to the pre-defined arc or radius of spraying required. Sprinkler heads will pop up when clogged with debris or dirt. A leak in the water line can cause low water pressure and keep water from flowing to the sprinkler head, so it won’t pop up. During installation, we space the sprinklers 25 feet apart for the larger ones that irrigate a radius beyond 16 feet diameter. For t hose sprinklers that do a smaller area we space at 12-15 feet apart. Our most common heights are 2,3,4,6 and 12 inches.
On average, it will take 30 minutes to get a half inch of water. So, 20 minutes, three times per week will give a lawn about an inch of water. This formula works best with healthy well drained soils. We install timers on all our pop up sprinkler systems that automatically switch off the system once the target watering time is achieved. A wet lawn at night predisposes the grass to fungal infection. Irrigate during the day and maintain the moisture level 6 inches below for proper lawn growth.
We supply pop up sprinklers that last for 15 to 20 years under proper use.
