IS YOUR RETICULATION UP TO STANDARD?
When installing your new home reticulation system, it’s notably important to pay a close eye to the way the sprinklers are set out. It’s not enough to just wet the area.
You must make sure that the sprinklers are set out “head to head”. One sprinkler throws the entire way to the next sprinkler for overlapping coverage.
One sprinkler pitches the entire way to the next sprinkler for overlapping coverage.
Some sprinkler heads let out a different amounts of water at the end of the spray radius than at the beginning and without having head to head coverage the watering would not be even.
Overlapping coverage always gets the top result and is the waterwise way of installing a system.
You may ask, “What is waterwise about adding in MORE sprinklers?” Well, it is more efficient, and you should be able to use less water.
Allocating the water in an efficient manner will confirm the best result for the amount of water applied. An even application assists even plant and lawn growth, which is vital if you want your lawn and gardens to look nice!
