How many sprinklers can I run at the same time with a normal garden hose?

How many sprinklers can I use with one garden hose? This will primarily be determined by the total flow rate and pressure you have available at your source.

For example, you generally have a flow rate of 10 gpm from a ¾-inch spigot where you connect your hose. With your 10 gpm flow rate at your spigot, you could run two sprinklers at 5 gpm each.

The best set-up is to run two hoses from the spigot–each to one sprinkler. Suggested sprinklers for this set-up are the Residential Sled Base Sprinklers or the Tripod Sprinklers.
