Rotating Sprinkler Nozzles

Rotating sprinkler nozzles use up to 20% less water than a standard sprinkler head by distributing water more slowly and uniformly to the landscape, while preserving plant health. In addition to reducing water use, water directed from these nozzles is less likely to mist, resists misdirection resulting from strong winds, and significantly reduces run-off onto streets and sidewalks with a more directed flow.

Soaker Hoses

image

Before the invention of the soaker hose, overhead sprinklers were the main type of irrigation device, but they created puddles and erosion problems. The soaker hose changed this by slowly dripping beads of water through pores along the length of the hose, and delivering water directly to plant roots. Knowing how to use one helps you place it correctly along plants, and run it at the right pressure to prevent blowouts.
