Pop-Up Sprinkler Head

Definition

The outlet valve of a water-spraying device, used to provide a continuous stream of water to a small area.

Things you need to know

Impact rotors are able to distribute water over a surface area of 20-150 ft. (often in a 40 to 360 degree arc). Gear-driven motors are best for small commercial areas or very large residential areas. Large-turf sprinklers are commonly used for parks and golf courses.

Cost Considerations

A standard pop-up sprinkler head averages $2 to $4; most lawns use 10-15 sprinkler heads.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
