Irrigation Product Listings & Reviews

Select a Product Review Category:

Product reviews are separated into categories based on the type of product. Click on the type of product you want to research below:

Fixed Spray-Type Sprinklers
Spray-type sprinklers spray a fan of water out of the nozzle, similar to a shower head. They are typically spaced up to 18 feet apart in the sprinkler system.

Rotor-Type Sprinklers
Rotor-type sprinklers have one or more moving streams of water that rotate around the sprinkler head. They are typically spaced from 18 to 45 feet apart. Even larger rotors designed for parks and golf courses are spaced up to 90 feet apart. You need a professional designer for these, even a minor design error will result in huge dry spots!

Valves
Electric solenoid valves used for turning on irrigation circuits (sprinklers or drip emitters.) Includes anti-siphon, angle, and globe type valves.

Controllers
Controllers are fancy timers used to turn on and off automatic valves.

Tools, Accessories, Etc.
Accessories, tools, and other products that don't fit into one of the above categories.


Common Questions about the Listings & Reviews

Are these reviews biased?

Of course! Expect that any evaluation of any product will be biased by the reviewer's own personal experiences with the product, observation of installations where the product is used, and/or the experiences related to by others.

Why are there question marks in some of the part numbers?

A question mark character (?) in a part number represents a place holder for ANY letter or number. For example, a product for which I list a part number of 531?? could represent any of the following: 53100, 53190, 531AZ, 531ZA, 531A1, 5319A, etc. Using a variable is simpler than showing many different part numbers that are all essentially the same product with only a minor variation, such as different sizes.

Even more confusion: Sometimes manufacturers repackage their products for specific stores using custom part numbers. Some manufacturer's use part numbers that make little sense at all (at least no logic that I can figure out!) A number of products are re-branded to carry the name of a different manufacturer, so you will find the exact same product with different brand names on it. All of these practices tend to confuse things. I have tried to include each such item under all the names and part numbers used, however it is just not possible for me to know all of them.
