What type of watering system are you looking for?
Are you looking for a sprinkler that distributes the water by spraying or do you need a rotary nozzle? Once you decide on the type, you easily eliminate other sprinklers then consider other aspects that will allow you to use the elimination method until you land on the perfect sprinkler for you.
How is the water pressure in your area?
Different places have different water pressures. This is very important when determining the type of sprinkler you should buy. Some sprinklers need high pressure for them to work effectively. Others can work perfectly well under low pressure. If your pressure is less than 40 psi, it is best to invest in a spray or rotary nozzle.
How big an area is it supposed to serve?
Different sprinklers are designed to work in certain spaces. If you are looking for a sprinkler to water a small area, you will only waste money buying one suitable for a large area. Do not invest in a sprinkler meant for a large area thinking it can work on a smaller area as you plan to invest in a large area. It is also important to look at the shape of the space intended for spraying. For example rotary nozzles are great for long and narrow spaces.
What is the shape of edge of area to be watered?
Some edges are circular while others have sharp corners. It is easy to overlook this aspect when buying sprinklers. However it is important because you do not want to waste water by buying a sprinkler that is likely to water a large area beyond the edges. If for example you have sharp curves, a rotor with short radii is recommended.
How durable is the material used on the sprinkler?
With the many companies producing sprinklers today, it can be overwhelming when it comes to deciding the best one to go for. Find out more about the material used and how durable it is when purchasing the sprinkler.
