Rotor Type Sprinklers


Sprinklers fall into one of two types based on the method they use to apply water to the ground; spray-type (sprays) or rotor-type (rotors.) Spray-type sprinklers are the type of sprinkler that spray a fixed water pattern similar to how a shower head works. Rotor-type sprinklers use a rotating stream (or multiple streams) of water to apply the water to the ground. Spray-type sprinklers (also called “spray heads” and “sprays”) are typically used for smaller areas. Rotor-type sprinklers (most often simply called “rotors”) are used for larger areas (generally more than 18' in width.)



Rotor is the term used to describe the various sprinklers which operate by rotating streams of water over the landscape. The example which most people are familiar with is the "impact" rotor sprinkler (often improperly called a "rainbird", Rainbird is the actually the trade name of a sprinkler manufacturer.) The impact sprinkler is mounted on a bearing that allows the entire sprinkler body to spin in circles. It is rotated by the impact of a swinging arm which repeatedly strikes the body of the sprinkler, causing it to rotate slightly each time.
