How pop up sprinklers work

1. Design

They are built using raisers that are designed to rise up to irrigate 2 to 12 inches above ground under high water pressure. It has a built-in debris filter, and a robust gear drive which turns the sprinkler to the pre-defined arc or radius of spraying required

2. Irrigation technique

Once the irrigation cycle is complete, decreasing water pressure causes the riser to retract back to its housing at ground level. Sprinkler heads will not 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. Another reason when there is low water pressure in the sprinkler system cuts down the irrigation range and will even cause the sprinkler heads not to function at all

3. Installation of a pop-up sprinkler

During installation, we space the sprinklers 25 feet apart for the larger ones that irrigate a radius beyond 16 feet diameter. For those sprinklers that do a smaller area, we space at 12-15 feet apart. The system is powered by a high pressure, high volume electric pump

4. Protection

A lawnmower cannot damage them in their retracted position because it’s protected. Our most common heights are 2,3,4,6 and 12 inches

Lawn Irrigation Using Pop Up Sprinklers

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.

 

Lawn Irrigation FAQs

1. How long should I water my lawn?

This depends on the soil type and the season. Sandy soils will be irrigated longer than clay soils

2. When should I water my lawn?

In the early morning so that the soil warms up in the day. Late evening or night watering lowers the soil temperature which is a precursor to root fungal infections

3. Can I install pop-ups on sloppy land?

Yes, you can. We align sprinkler heads perpendicular to the slope and position them closer together on the uphill side of the pattern

 

We supply pop-up sprinklers that last for 15 to 20 years under proper use. Grekkon Limited’s technical team works with clients to design their lawn irrigation requirements and install sprinkler systems.
