Frequently Asked Questions

Each sprinkler head on our site has a published performance chart from the manufacturer stating how much flow and pressure it takes to operate each size sprinkler and lists the performance data of the sprinkler at a chosen flow rate and pressure setting. Most sprinklers will operate in a wide range of flows by simply adjusting the nozzle size to match the flow capability that your well or pump provides. Pressure requirements vary and typically as pressure is increased, the performance pattern of the sprinkler will increase. Your servicing pump dealer should be able to tell you what your well or pump's capability is and then you can match your pump's capability to a sprinkler performance chart of your choosing.
