A garden hose connected to a spigot on city water or a domestic well usually has a flow rate of 10-12 gpm, with a working pressure of 40-60 psi.
We have sprinkler carts, sleds, and tripods, which will connect to a garden hose and accommodate common household flow and pressure.
*Note: Not all garden hose applications are the same and the above-mentioned specifications are a generalization. It is important to find out your flow rate and pressure are with a flow and pressure test kit available on our webstore.
Two of the most important pieces of information to know when researching and purchasing sprinklers and hoses are the water pressure and the flow rate at your spigot.
The specifications for sprinklers explain how much pressure you’ll need to run it properly, as well as at what flow rate. While finding these numbers is more difficult when using a large hose or if you’re using a high-powered pump, it’s easy when you’re using a garden hose.
