As it relates to most residential lawn care needs, there are three main styles of sprinkler head. They all have different functions, but they all spray water from sprinkler lines and out to the lawn. Sprinkler heads are positioned around the yard to provide full coverage of the lawn and flower beds. They are designed to retract and settle at or below ground level when not in operation. When the head is activated, water pressure causes the head to pop up and spray water in an effective manner that uses far less water than dragging the hose around.

Common Types of Sprinkler Head

1. Pop-Up Sprinkler Heads

2. Gear-Driven Rotors

3. Impact Rotors

Pop-Up Sprinkler HeadsPop-up Sprinkler Head Omaha, NE

These head types spray in a fan pattern and are generally used for smaller areas like park strips. They come in various heights. Most new sprinkler systems will use all four-inch sprinklers. Taller sprinkler heads are used primarily for ground cover, gardens and shrubs.

Pop-up spray nozzles are a separate part from the sprinkler body. They are screwed on the top of the sprinkler riser and spray between 3-18 feet, depending on the head you choose. The nozzles also have various output patterns, such as a full circle, half-circle, or a quarter circle, square, rectangle, etc. There are also variable arc nozzles that have an adjustable spray from 0-360 degrees.


Gear-Driven Rotor head Sprinkler Master OmahaGear-Driven Rotor Heads

Gear-Driven Sprinkler Heads are also available for use on a pop-up sprinkler and come in various spray patterns and distances.

These Rotors are very common in medium to large scale sprinkler systems. These are commonly used on large residential areas, and they generally require less maintenance, while being more quiet and water efficient than other sprinkler heads.

The rotors also come with nozzle trees with different nozzles designed to save water, that typically either look like this, or this. These nozzles range from 1.5 to 8 gallons per minute (GPM) and have standard to low angle spray.

Typically, gear-driven rotors’ spray distance ranges from 18-55 feet and the arc ranges from 40-360 degrees.


Impact Rotor HeadsImpact Rotor head Sprinkler Master Repair (Omaha, NE)

These rotor heads are similar to Gear-Driven Rotors in distance and arc ranges. However, these rotors have not evolved much over the years. They have maintained a simple design, and they work well in areas where irrigation water is used in the sprinkler system. These rotors require less maintenance than most, because they can take on dirty or contaminated water without breaking.

However, Impact Rotors are commonly more noisy than the other types of sprinkler heads listed above. They also tend to be more expensive because they are often made out of higher-cost material such as brass. Because of this design however, they are made to last for years due to sturdy craftsmanship.

10 Ways a Great Lawn Will Make Life Better!

Top Advantages of a Beautiful Lawn

Happy Family Playing in lawn Sprinkler Master Repair
A beautiful family having a great time on their luscious green lawn
A beautiful, lush, dense lawn has many great advantages. A home with an inviting lawn will welcome you and all of your guests. Here are a few advantages of a well maintained lawn.
Grass Cools Down Your Property
When the heat is on in the summer, grass keeps you cool. Front lawns of just 8 average houses have the same cooling effect as about 70 tons of air conditioning, while the average home-size central air unit has only a 3 – 4 ton capacity. On top of that grass acts as a noise reducer as it effectively absorbs and deflects sound. When combining a beautiful lush lawn with trees, shrubs and other landscaping a lawn can significantly reduce hard unwanted noise.
Enhances the Whole Neighborhood
Lawns can contribute to your sense of well-being. Most people say that the best place to relax is in their own backyard. A green, attractive landscape design goes much further than just relaxation and recreation. For example when the city installs landscaping and grass parks to enhance the area, people start taking pride in their surroundings and raise the bar of their own property maintenance. As well as, when I have a neighbor with a well-kept lawn, it encourages the rest of the neighbors to do a better job and in return the whole neighborhood benefits.
Easier to Sell Your Home
An attractive landscape can make or break a home sale. Landscaping can add tens of thousands of dollars to the value of your property. In fact, it is one of the few home improvements you can make that not only adds value immediately, but also increases in value as the years go by; while interior decor and design concepts regularly go out of style and mechanical systems wear out, plants grow fuller and more robust as the years go by. The home’s value is added at an advantage ranged from 5.5 percent to 12.7 percent. That translates into an extra $16,500 to $38,100 in value on a $300,000 home. A beautiful landscape design and healthy lawn is a good indication that they’ve taken care of the inside of the house as well and that the home is worth a premium price.
Grass Is A Pollution Fighter!
In one year the blades and roots of grass in an acre of healthy grass absorbs hundreds of pounds of pollutants from the air and rainfall. Among them are sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, hydrogen, fluoride, nitrates and other gases blamed for acid rain and the greenhouse effect.
Grass Produces Oxygen
Grass plants remove co2 from the air and produce o2 in return. Just 625 square feet of grass supplies all the oxygen a person needs for one day. A 5000 square foot lawn produces enough oxygen for 8 people each day. In comparison, it takes two 100-foot trees to provide the same amount of oxygen for 8 people.
Grass Saves Soil!
A green lush lawn stabilizes the soil against water and wind. Lawns prevent runoff and erosion of our valuable topsoil, keeping additional phosphorus from entering our streams and rivers. A healthy lawn also traps much of the estimated 12 million tons of dust and dirt released into the US atmosphere annually.
Grass Has Better Rain Absorption
Healthy, dense lawns absorb rainfall 6 times more effectively than a wheat field, four times better than a hay field, and prevent runoff and erosion of our precious topsoil, keeping additional phosphorus from entering our streams and rivers. A healthy lawn also traps much of the estimated 12 million tons of dust and dirt released into the US atmosphere annually.
Grass is Mother Nature’s Carpet
Nature surrounds us, make yours stunning! Grass is used for recreation from family picnics to soccer to football to any other sport played on grass, grass is essential. It acts as a pad to reduce injuries that might have happened. A dense lawn is a far safer playground and playing field than nearly any other surface.
Hospitalized Patients Have A Faster Recovery
When the patient’s room viewed a beautiful landscaped area compared to patients with non-landscaped views a faster recovery has been observed in hospitals.
Grass Helps Fight Wildfires
With the weather heating up, wildfires are more prone to spreading. Help protect yourself with a lush green lawn. Grass is known to have a low fuel value which can actually help act as a buffer around your property in case of fire hazards.
