To the clueless, a sprinkler irrigation is a man-made water system that simulates rainfall to give plants that much-needed aqua supply. Using pipes powered by pumping, water is sprayed into the air to fall onto crops and deep into the soil — a scene that is very similar to that sight we see when it rains. Unfortunately, it is not everyday that it rains, and in some places, rain comes only after a long period of time. So to answer this problem, the irrigation sprinkler system is an effective and efficient way to supply water to plants. This artificial system has allowed constant production of food without having to rely on clouds and natural rain.

There are a few types of irrigation sprinkler systems that are specifically designed to answer different needs, but most of the time, these types depend on how large or small the area is, and what kind of property they will be used in. Some of these irrigation sprinkler systems may be suitable for large or smaller areas, some of them for only a selection of crops or plants, and some of them are created specifically for hotel or residential use only. But almost all of these sprinkler irrigation systems are designed with water savings in mind while ensuring quality and ease of installation.

But perhaps the best way to classify an irrigation sprinkler system is through the sprinklers. There are two common types of sprinklers — industrial and residential sprinklers.

Sprinklers that follows a fixed pattern are of the industrial type. Most of these types of sprinklers or irrigation sprinkler systems are controlled and operated through electric and hydraulic technology as the area of coverage can be really wide. These sprinklers can also be located above the ground or are buried in the ground.

Another type of sprinklers is the residential type. These sprinklers are commonly used to water a lawn. Some of these sprinklers are permanently installed and are directly connected to the home’s plumbing system. These types of sprinklers can also be seen as being used to water golf courses. These sprinklers are not that expensive as compared to the more powerful industrial sprinkler systems.

An irrigation sprinkler system is indeed an efficient and fast way to water plants. Whether watering a lawn or covering a wider coverage area, there are types that suit everyone’s needs. Plus, this is not really a sophisticated type of technology. It is efficient and easy to install.
