The Lo-Flo™ sprinkler head uses unique wobbler-head technology to efficiently and even distribute water over the selected area.
Proven in tests to be 9 times more efficient than old generation sprinklers (Vortex, 3 Arm, Rainbox, etc).
The Lo-Flo™ sprinkler head has a lower flow rate (resulting in no run off) when compared to many older style sprinklers, meaning you will use less water to get the same desired green effect!
|Lo-Flo™ Sprinkler Head||Old Generation Sprinkler (Vortex, 3 Arm, Rainbox)|
|Uses only 5L of water per minute||Uses up to 25L of water per minute|
|Slow water application - ensures deep soaking down to plant roots, improving plant health||Applies water quickly - resulting in increased run-off, pooling, evaporation and waste|
|Water throws at a low 10 degree angle – less drift||Sprays high – water easily lost by wind and evaporation|
|Waters extremely efficiently, applying even amounts to target area. Proven in tests to be 9 times more efficient||Water applied unevenly in a donut shape, patches or too close to sprinkler, resulting in under-watered and over-watered areas|
|Link together to water large or unusual shaped areas in one watering – no moving required||Needs to be moved regularly to cover the area|
|Works off a rainwater tank with no pump – diameter dependent on pressure||Will not work effectively from a rainwater tank without a pump|
The Lo-Flo™ can be easily joined together in-line:
- Simply remove the black outlet cap on the base
- Screw on a female thread x snap adapter
- Cut a 3m to 4m length of hose
- Fit a snap connector at each end
- Finally, use a tap timer to set and forget!
You can run the hose and sprinkler around the corner of the L-section, and water most or all of the area at once!
In cases where your water pressure is extremely high this can affect the performance of the Lo-Flo™ Sprinkler (and other outdoor water appliances including timer taps).
A pressure regulator, attached to either the tap or into first Lo-Flo™ Sprinkler, will reduce and even out the water pressure, allowing a constant strong stream rather than a raging torrent.
We recommend a pressure regulator set at 175 kPa (25psi).
You can purchase a Pressure Regulator in our online store!
Our garden experts suggest applying water in long deep soaks and using a tap timer. Your lawn will benefit from approximately 20-25mm of water per week.
Our experts suggest spacing your Lo-Flos™ 3.5-5m apart depending on your water pressure. The lower your water pressure, the closer you will need to space your sprinklers.
The Lo-Flo™ applies approximate water coverage with the below spacing configurations:
- 25mm per hour - 3.5m x 3.5m spacing
- 12mm per hour @ 5m x 5m spacing
Watering time and amount will vary depending on weather conditions, soil and local water restrictions/pressure.
