Sprinkler head type determines the flow rate of a zone, or how much water a sprinkler can deliver to your plants over a given duration. Certain head types have high flow rates, and can irrigate your yard quickly, while other types are slower and take longer to provide the same amount of water.
Below are the head types you can choose from.
Custom: You can also tune your sprinkler head type with your own data. Custom uses Precipitation Rate and Application Rate as user defined variables. Precipitation rate is basically the inches of water delivered to an area, and Application Rate is the flow rate over an area.
