Aqua Hub offers the best and most reasonably priced Pop-up Sprinklers in Kenya. Pop-up sprinklers are a type of irrigation system that is applicable to water lawns and gardens. They consist of a series of sprinkler heads mounted on a system of pipes and valves. Upon activation of the system, the sprinkler heads pop up from the ground and release water spray to irrigate the surrounding area. Pop-up sprinklers are often applicable in residential and commercial landscaping applications because they are relatively easy to install and maintain.
In Kenya, pop-up sprinklers can effectively water lawns and gardens. This is particularly in areas with unreliable access to irrigation water. However, it is important to be mindful of water conservation and to use sprinklers efficiently to avoid wasting water. This may involve adjusting the frequency and duration of watering to match the needs of the plants. This is possible by using low-flow sprinkler heads to reduce water usage. Investing in a timer or irrigation controller is also a good idea to ensure that activating the pop-up sprinkler is when you need it.
What is the cost of pop-up sprinklers?
The cost of our pop-up sprinklers varies according to their size. There are two sizes of pop-up sprinklers: 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch. Costs for 3/4 inches are Ksh 3800 and Ksh 2850 for 1/2 inch.
Pop-up sprinkler head types
Pop-up sprinkler heads are available in various types, each designed for a specific irrigation application. Some common types of pop-up sprinkler heads include:
- Full-circle: Full-circle sprinkler heads release a spray of water in a complete circle, covering an area of 360 degrees. These sprinklers are often applicable for watering large areas, such as lawns.
- Part-circle: Part-circle sprinkler heads release a spray of water in a partial circle, covering an area of less than 360 degrees. These sprinklers are often for watering smaller areas or targeting specific plants or sections of a garden.
- Gear-driven: Gear-driven sprinkler heads use a system of gears to rotate the spray pattern as the water is released. These sprinklers are typically more expensive than other types but are durable and reliable.
- Rotary nozzles: Rotary nozzles are a type of sprinkler head that uses a rotating spray pattern to cover a larger area. These sprinklers are often for watering lawns or large gardens and often have adjustable nozzles to allow you to control the size and shape of the spray.
- Spray nozzles: Spray nozzles release a wide, misty spray of water that covers a large area. These sprinklers are often for watering lawns or areas with plants that have shallow roots.
It’s important to choose the right type of pop-up sprinkler head for your irrigation needs. For example, a full-circle or gear-driven sprinkler head may be the most effective option if you have a large lawn. On the other hand, if you have a small garden with plants requiring more water, a part-circle or rotary nozzle sprinkler head may be better.
