The cost of an impact sprinkler in Kenya varies based on your desired model. The kind often relies on the size of the inlet diameter. There are 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, and 1 inch. The costs range from 500 to 1,300 Kenyan shillings. We provide the top impact sprinklers at competitive prices. Most plants grown using this technique are leafy plants with hard steam, such as maize, coffee, tea, and pineapple. We provide recommendations for the best impact sprinkler to utilize on your farm.
An impact sprinkler is an irrigation system that uses a rotating arm to distribute water over a large area. Impact sprinklers are often applicable to water crops and lawns in agriculture and landscaping. You have to mount the sprinkler on a tall stand or tripod for it to work. They are then powered by a hose or pipe that delivers water from a pump or other water source. The arm of the sprinkler rotates, propelling water out of a nozzle. Hence, creating a spray pattern that covers a specific area. Impact sprinklers are designed to be durable and long-lasting. They can change the water spray’s direction, range, and intensity. Some impact sprinklers also have features like timers, flow control valves, and rain sensors to help conserve water and optimize irrigation.

The prices of impact sprinklers vary depending on the size that you want. Our sizes are 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, and 1 inch. The Inlet Diameter Size determines the sizes. The larger the Inlet Diameter Size, the more expensive the impact sprinkler will be.
|Diameter of the inlet||Cost in Ksh|
|½ inch Impact sprinkler||KES 500|
|¾ inch Impact sprinkler||KES 800|
|1-inch Impact sprinkler||KES 1,300|
How does impact sprinkler work?
An impact sprinkler uses an impact mechanism to drive a spinning arm that throws water in a circular pattern. The impact mechanism is typically located at the base of the sprinkler and consists of a small weight attached to a spring. When water flows through the sprinkler, the weight forces it downward by the pressure of the water, compressing the spring. As the weight reaches the bottom of its travel, it releases it, and the spring expands, causing the weight to rise again.
As the weight rises, it strikes a lever or arm, which causes the spinning arm to rotate. The arm’s mounting is typically on a pivot, which allows it to rotate in a circular pattern. The water is delivered to the impact sprinkler through a hose or pipe and is thrown outward by the spinning arm as it rotates. The sprinkler can be adjustable to rotate in a full circle or cover a specific area, depending on the user’s needs.
What are the advantages of impact sprinklers?
- Enables you to precisely adjust the sprinkler to cover the areas most important to you by applying various stream patterns to the landscape. By calculating the distance, installing several fixed impact sprinklers, or knowing where to move your sprinkler, you can easily saturate grass without missing any areas or inadvertently irrigating cement sidewalks, fences, or the neighbor’s home.
- Water distribution should be done in an arc pattern ranging from 40 to 360 degrees. Adjusting your water zone is made simpler by precisely controlling the arc pattern.
- Cover a larger area than the pop-up spray head of a standard in-ground irrigation sprinkler. A high-end impact sprinkler has a significant range, even if the amount of water pressure you can push through an impact or oscillating sprinkler depends on the pressure in your municipality’s water pipes.
- The majority of rotors have a 20 to 150-foot spray radius. Homes with sizable front or backyard grass might benefit from the flexibility to extend 50 to 75 feet in all directions. If you have one sprinkler, you won’t need to move it as frequently to wet the entire lawn.
How to install an impact sprinkler
Installing an impact sprinkler is a relatively simple process. You can do it by following these steps:
- Choose a suitable location for the impact sprinkler. The sprinkler should be placed in a leveled area with good drainage. It should also be positioned in a way that allows it to cover the area you want to water.
- Assemble the impact sprinkler according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This typically involves attaching the impact mechanism to the sprinkler’s base and the spinning arm to the impact mechanism.
- Attach the hose or pipe that will deliver water to the sprinkler to the inlet on the base of the sprinkler.
- Place the impact sprinkler on a tripod or other support structure and adjust it to the desired height.
- Connect the hose or pipe to the water source and turn on the water.
- Adjust the impact sprinkler to rotate in a full circle or to cover a specific area, depending on your needs. You can do this by adjusting the impact mechanism or repositioning the tripod’s sprinkler.
- Test the impact sprinkler to ensure it is functioning properly and that the water is distributed evenly over the desired area.
- If necessary, make additional adjustments to the impact sprinkler to ensure it is operating correctly.
