Rotating Sprinkler Nozzles and Pressure Regulating Devices
Rotating sprinkler nozzles with pressure regulating devices apply water more slowly and uniformly than standard sprinkler heads which helps prevent overwatering and runoff. Instead of an overly strong, solid spray of water, rotating sprinkler nozzles slowly rotate with multiple, separate trajectory streams of water at an approximate rate of .4 inch per hour rather than a spray’s 1.5 inches of water per hour, allowing less water to evaporate and more water to penetrate the ground.
Because more penetrates the ground, rotating sprinkler nozzles with pressure regulating devices are estimated to use 20% less water than conventional spray heads.
Must be on the SoCal Water Smart rebate list.Product also called “rotary nozzles and bodies”. Replaces regular sprinkler nozzles and bodies with rotary versions that reduce water usage up to 20%. Should also have matched precipitation capability so that all spray patterns and radius deliver water evenly over the landscape area.
