with sprinklers for the yard. I have used those sprinklers that throw water
by the little spring mechanism for years. But this year, they just won't do
the job. I've taken them completely apart and cleaned them as I always do,
I've bought new ones (which are now plastic) and even tried different kinds
and I can pee further than these things can spray. I thought it might be the
water well losing pressure but I did a pressure test and it's right up there
at about 40psi. We have really heavy lime but I see no signs of that being
the problem. After all, there is plenty pressure at the end of the hose.
Just when you hook up those sprinklers it's blah.
Rotating head? Make? Model? What size and spray pattern are the new
heads? Nozzles come in half circle, quarter, full, etc., as well as
long narrow rectangular pattern. Any chance you switched to wrong
nozzle? With 40 psi, you should get good spray. Have you looked
around for signs of broken or cracked underground pipe - soggy wet
ground, water or sand coming to surface?
