How much area?
We use 3-4 of these...
There is also the National that is built a little more ruggedly but is
quite a bit pricier up front...
Think about your question for a minute.
For one thing, anyone that's fortunate to have a lawn sprinkler that has
worked through a complete season, or even 2 or 3 seasons, is probably
not going to know it's make, model, or where they bought it.
And second, the odds that you're going to come across the same make and
model of (likely chinese-made) piece of hardware in your locality is
slim to none, if indeed that make and model is still in production in
the first place.
There was another stupid question here recently (a hand-pumped garden
sprayer I think). Same logic applies.
I have a Mist Master sprinkler that has to be 60 years old. It has no
moving parts and looks like a metal cone with a small hole in the middle
that puts out a fine mist. Great for the flower beds, probably not the
best for a lawn.
Here is one on eBay:
Rest assured, there's nothing that fool can say to bother me. People such as
he insult, thus, trying to fill a pathetic void in their life due to their
jealous and envious character. I almost pity the pathetic sap.
The idiot is on my blocked list. It's too bad the rest of the group doesn't
do the same.
You know I think I'm going to do the same and I haven't even read many
of his posts but I already got a glimpse of his personality from you
and another. Now all I have to figure out is how to filter correctly
in my newsreader. Regards.
Look at the responses so far.
Mostly for ancient sprinklers that are 30 to 60 years old.
And the ridiculously expensive european Gardena sprinklers.
There have been thousands of different sprinklers imported into north
america over the past 5 or 10 years from china, sold in all sorts of
department, hardware, big-box and surplus stores, sold for anywhere from
$2 to $20. Some (or even most of them) either worked like shit or only
worked for maybe a month, and some ended up being worthy to recommend to
Someone in up-state New York may have bought one of those good ones 2
years ago at J-Mart. Do you think someone in San Diego will be able to
find one of those for sale at retail today?
My guess is that the OP will probably not want to buy a $35 gardena
sprinkler. But he seems to post here occasionally so he's not a
"drive-by" one-time poster. Maybe be will come back here into this
thread and tell us what his budget is.
Jess Stryker's site has everything you will likely ever need to know
about lawn irrigation, here:
I believe he will also answer emails, but I would do my homework first
as the guy is not a commercial lawn guy.
As to a commerical lawn guy well maybe not but this is what he says on
"The tutorial was written by a professional landscape architect with
over 20 years of irrigation design experience."
Regardless, this looks like a nice site to start with (maybe end with
too). Of course I haven't read the entire site yet <grin>.
He obviously has advertisers on the site....Jess has had the site up for
a long time....been about 15 years or so since I first used it. Home
page, if you scroll down, has topics other than irrigation, including
family photos. Jess is the landscape architect, per his page:
