Irrigation systems are ways that you can remotely water your plants. Sprinklers are one of the most popular kinds of irrigation systems. In this article, we are going to take a look at some of the different components of sprinkler irrigation systems, and how they work.
The first thing that is important to understand about a sprinkler system is that the head of the sprinklers is what causes the water to disperse. Sprinkler heads are shaped in a way that promotes the spread of the water evenly. When a sprinkler system is turned on, the water travels to the sprinkler head, and the pressure causes it to open.
Each irrigation system has underground components that you may not be able to see. There are pipes that travel from a water source to each of the sprinkler heads. These pipes must be secured in place to ensure that the whole system works properly.
Finally, the last part of the system that we are going to talk about is the backflow preventer. This is the part of the system that connected the irrigation pipes to a water source. When you turn a sprinkler system on and off, the backflow preventer is what lets the water in or out.
