With low water use, this low flow sprinkler uses 5 litres of water per minute, with a spray diameter of up 10m.
Applies 25mm per hour @ 3.5m x 3.5 spacing; 12mm per hour @ 5m x 5m spacing. Watering time depends on weather, soil and local water restrictions.
Lawns benefit from 20-25mm of water per week.
We suggest applying water in long deep soaks and using a tap timer.
For optimum watering move the Lo-Flo™ Sprinkler about 3.5m to 5m spacings in a grid formation.
Adjust tap down to minimize mist or use a pressure regulator. Where high water pressure may be an issue, we recommend a 19mm (3/4") pressure regulator set at 175kPa (25psi) (refer Purchase page) attached either to the tap or Lo-Flo Sprinkler.
For optimum performance ensure both wheels are firmly on the ground to prevent free wheel spin.
Lo-Flo™ Sprinklers link together to water large or unusual shaped areas.
Simply unscrew back cap off sprinkler, add a 19mm (3/4") tap adaptor, click on 3.5 – 5m of hose then attach the next Lo-Flo Sprinkler. Dependent on your water pressure, this can be repeated many times to run multiple Lo-Flo Sprinklers. Refer to Purchase page for Connector Kits.
Note: As some commercial tap adaptors have different threads, we recommend removing the washer on the back cap of the Lo-Flo Sprinkler and adding it to the tap adaptor you will be using (now 2 washers) to prevent any potential leakage. This process is not necessary if using our Connector Kit.
|Lo-Flo™ Sprinkler - New Generation||Old Generation (vortex, 3 arm, rainbox)|
|Uses only 5 litres of water per minute||Uses up to 25 litres of water per minute|
|Slow water application ensures deep soaking down to plant roots – needed for plant health||Applies water quickly resulting in increased run-off, pooling, evaporation and waste|
|Water throws at low 10 degrees angle – less drift||Sprays high – water easily affected by wind and evaporation|
|Waters extremely efficiently, applying even amounts of water to target area. Proven in tests to be 9 times more efficient||Water applied unevenly in donut shape, in patches or close to sprinkler resulting in underwatered and overwatered areas|
|Link together to water large or unusual shape areas in one watering – no moving||Needs to be moved regularly to cover the area|
|Works off rainwater tank with no pump – diameter dependent on head of pressure||Will not work effectively|
