Impact sprinklers, also known as impulse or impact rotor sprinklers, differ from other sprinklers due to their impact-activated design, internal mechanisms and intricate methods of water distribution. They were created for larger outdoor areas with varying levels of water pressure, as compared to other sprinkler types on the market.
Impact sprinklers are activated when water droplets impact a cup or diaphragm, causing a valve to open and allowing water to flow through the sprinkler head and onto the lawn.
The internal mechanisms of an impact sprinkler include a float valve, a diaphragm and a nozzle. The float valve actually controls the flow of water into the sprinkler head while the diaphragm is activated by the impact of water droplets. Impact sprinklers, then, operate as this hammer-like mechanism rotates the sprinkler head. The force of the water hitting the sprinkler’s arm causes it to move in a circular motion, distributing water in a radius.
Other sprinkler types tend to use different mechanisms, such as fixed spray heads or rotating nozzles, to emit water in a predetermined pattern without the hammer-like motion.
Impact sprinklers are also known for their heavy-duty design and ability to withstand harsh outdoor conditions. They’re more resistant to clogging and damage when compared to other sprinkler types, otherwise prone to blockages and breaking.
Unlike most other sprinkler types, impact sprinklers are ideal for covering larger areas due to their rotating motion. They cover a much wider radius and are often used for large lawns, agriculture and ball fields, whereas other sprinkler types may be better suited for small to medium-sized lawns, gardens and flower beds with more specific watering patterns.
Impact sprinklers are generally more tolerant of varying water pressures, making them excellent for areas with inconsistent water supply or low pressure. Other sprinkler types, especially those with fixed spray patterns, may require a more consistent water pressure to maintain even coverage.
Finally, impact sprinklers often offer adjustable settings for rotation speed, spray distance and pattern, allowing users to customize the watering area according to their needs, while other sprinkler types tend to have fixed settings, providing limited flexibility when it comes to adjusting the watering parameters.
Florida offers a voluntary license for irrigation contractors, which exempts them from a required local irrigation contracting license. Irrigation contractors are not regulated by the State of Florida, but there are several counties that require a license to perform irrigation-related activities.
Becoming a certified or licensed irrigation contractor, however, can add instant credibility to your brand. It can open the door to new jobs and opportunities. Plus, by emphasizing your commitment to efficient water management, you could qualify for the EPA WaterSense program, which actively promotes individual licensed contractors to potential customers across the state.
In Florida, the following licenses and certifications are just some of the credentials available to sprinkler and irrigation professionals:
- Florida Irrigation Contractor License: This license is available to individuals or businesses engaged in the contracting of irrigation systems in Florida. It allows for the installation, maintenance, and repair of irrigation systems.
- Florida Irrigation Certification: While not a license, Florida offers voluntary certifications through the Florida Irrigation Society (FIS). These certifications demonstrate expertise in irrigation design, installation, and maintenance. They include:
Once you receive inclusion into the EPA WaterSense Program‘s online Directory of Certified Professionals, you’ll gain access to work opportunities for WaterSense new homes, federal facilities and LEED® certified projects.
“To become licensed,” Attorney Trent Cotney, who specializes in construction-related law, points out that “irrigation contractors must be 18 years or older and have at least four years of experience in the category for which they are seeking licensure. They must also have at least one year of experience as a foreman. Interested contractors must also pass the certified irrigation specialty contractors exam and must show good character and financial stability.”
He also points out that contractors must be skilled and competent in more than 9 different areas, including:
- Sprinkler irrigation installation and repair
- Drip and low emittance
- Moisture and rain sensors
- Valve location
- Irrigation controllers and control wiring
- Rain sensors
- Conservation devices
- Harvesting systems
- Backflow prevention
It’s important for Floridian sprinkler and irrigation professionals to research and comply with the specific licensing requirements set by the state, individual counties and any other relevant governing bodies. Requirements may vary depending on the scope of work, project size and other factors.
