One of the many recommendations we make to homeowners (and homeowner associations) interested in increasing irrigation efficiency is to retrofit spray head sprinklers on their system with rotary (or rotator) nozzles. Spray heads apply large amounts of water in a very short time and are susceptible to wind drift. Rotary heads apply water more slowly and in stronger streams that resist wind.
Since many urban landscape irrigation systems in South Florida not only feature zones with mixed heads (sprays alongside the even slower applying rotor head)...
...but also use spray heads to irrigate low-maintenance shrubs, enhancing existing spray heads with rotary (or rotator) nozzles is an easy and effective retrofit – and entirely rebateable through this year’s rebate-centered program.
This video is the result of a property's invitation to me to retrofit all the spray heads on its system. I call it a micro-video because it was filmed and edited entirely on an iPod Touch 4G and features only me.
