  • Introduction

    When vegetable crops and other plant life can't get sufficient water from rain alone during the growing season, irrigation is a popular supplemental method. Irrigation involves using a network of above- or below-ground water lines and/or sprinklers to ensure that plants are properly hydrated. Irrigation is done in a controlled manner similar to natural rainfall.

    A water sprinkler (also known as an irrigation sprinkler) is a device that distributes water to a controlled area for crops and gardens. They're often installed as part of a structure called a "sprinkler system." Sprinkler systems are also frequently used to keep turfs healthy and green, and it's installed to water lawns, golf courses, sports fields, and more.
  • What are the four types of sprinkler systems?

    Four of the most common types of sprinkler systems are wet pipe, dry pipe, pre-action and deluge. The main difference between the sprinkler systems is how they're activated and triggered to release water when the air temperature exceeds a certain level.

  • How much does it cost to install a sprinkler system yourself?

    According to Houselogic, the average cost to install a new sprinkler system on a quarter-acre lot on your own is around $1,500, with variations based on the type of system used and the quality of the hardware. DIY installation is typically a $1,500 to $2,000 savings over hiring a professional.

  • Why use a dry sprinkler system?

    A dry sprinkler system, as its name suggests, isn't filled with water. Instead, it's pressurized with compressed air or nitrogen when not in use. It's preferable to other types of systems in colder climates because it's resistant to freezing.

  • What does irrigation mean?

    Irrigation uses controlled amounts of water through channels to provide water for various land productions, including crops, landscapes, and turf. Early civilizations used irrigation technology to divert water from rivers; today, most irrigation systems use modern underground plumbing infrastructure.

  • How much does an irrigation system cost?

    The cost of an irrigation system depends on the type of irrigation used, the size of the system, and if you use professionals for the installation process. According to Houselogic, it costs between $3,000 and $4,000 to have an irrigation system professionally installed on an average-sized property.

  • How do irrigation systems work?

    Irrigation systems connect to the water lines on a residential or commercial property. A network of smaller lines carries water to areas around the property, where it's distributed via sprinklers, drip lines, or hoses to provide coverage to plants as needed.
