Historically, most irrigation systems lack pressure-regulated sprinklers, which often leads to operating in an over-pressurized manner. Over-pressurization can cause water loss and contribute to uneven watering.
Pressure-regulating spray heads are a developing technology designed to regulate pressure to optimal performance. These spray heads include built-in regulators that maintain a more constant pressure for optimal nozzle performance.
WHY IS PRESSURE REGULATION IMPORTANT?
Two reasons: Pressure regulation saves water and it is likely soon to be the law.
Compared with non-regulated sprinklers, pressure-regulated sprinklers will use about 20-25% less water.
And, if the nozzle breaks, pressure regulators are estimated to save 70% of the water that might have been spilled if using an older sprinkler system!
