Head to Head vs Tip to Tip

With the temperatures rising this is a great opportunity to know how your irrigation system is set up! Whether it is the right or wrong is entirely subjective.. We’ll let you be the judge. Nine times out of ten sprinkler heads spray at a pre set distance. For example, let’s say you have a head that sprays around 20 feet. Water should make it all the way to the next head. In order for them to reach, water is sprayed in an arch. This allows the waters spray patterns to overlap and ensure the entire area receives coverage. This is called “head to head” coverage. Instead of water hitting from head to head, “tip to tip” head placement is determined on where the water stops. The issue with this is when the two heads spray towards each other the patterns will meet. This will result in uneven water coverage.
