Learn How A Home Irrigation Sprinkler System Works

October 01, 2020

If you’ve invested in landscaping your yard or putting in an attractive lawn, of course you want to maintain it and protect your investment. A Home Irrigation Sprinkler System can help you achieve that.

Read on to discover exactly how a home irrigation sprinkler system works and the benefits of having one. Sprinkler Checkup will come to your home and optimize your system so it functions correctly and saves you money.

How Does A Home Irrigation Sprinkler System Work?

The home irrigation sprinkler system is generally made up of four components:

  1. The controller (aka timer)
  2. Irrigation valves
  3. Underground piping
  4. Sprinkler heads (These are usually spray heads or rotating heads.)

Sprinkler irrigation systems work by the water pressure released into an irrigation valve. A controller is a timer set to release the water at appropriate times based on the needs of your land. The controller also shuts the water off after the programmed watering cycle is complete.

The sprinkler system, depending upon the size of your yard, will divide the land into sections. A timer usually regulates when the sprinklers turn on.

A sprinkler head handles watering a section. Sprinkler heads can either be always above the ground or remain under the ground and “pop up” when the home irrigation system activates.

Sprinkler heads are either spray heads or rotating heads. Spray heads are used for smaller areas. They only release water in a limited direction. Rotating heads are adjustable and release the water in a complete circle or a semi-circle.
