Types of Irrigation

Irrigation

Micro Drip

This type of irrigation is over 90% efficient wth minimal loss due to evaporation and little affect by wind. Used for shrubs and gardens

Micro Spray

Not as effective as drip but designed to be run on the same zones and in the same locations as drip irrigation. Used for shrubs and gardens.

Sprinklers

The picture above has a rotor (single stream that rotates) and a spray on the right. These sprinklers are in the range of 70% to 80% efficiencty and are more suspectible to evaporation and environmental affects such as wind. These are still the only way to water turf.

Agriculture
