Sprinkler System · · PAGE 39.
April 22 2017: The
last of the six zones is on the East side of the house north of the
driveway. There are only FOUR sprinklers here, and all of them rotate.
The 180-degree rotating head seen here has water visible only close to the head
due to the shadows and lighting affecting the camera exposure.
This photo north of the driveway shows a pop-up nozzle with a 90-degree
the corner of the driveway and concrete area where the trash and recycle
cans are kept. The closer pop-up sweeps 180 degrees.
The last of the four rotating sprinklers here is seen near the big oak
tree closer to the northeast corner of the lot. This sprayer rotates a full 360
There is one fixed pop-up nozzle with a 90-degree coverage at the
southeast corner of the garage by the driveway. That old rotten board with
the nails in it seen on the walkway to the front door was found behind those
bushes up against the wall of the garage. This is the first of the
sprayers in the southeast sprinkler zone.
This pop-up sprayer rotates 180 degrees from its location midway down the
length of the driveway on the south edge of the concrete.
The sprinkler at the southeast corner of this zone does not
oscillate. I found I could turn it by hand through the 90 degrees of
rotation it normally covers. I have bought a replacement for this location
from Home Depot for a price of $7.47 per unit. I purchased three of these
pop-up rotating sprinklers. One will be installed here set to cover the
This image outlines the sprinklers in this zone. Only one of them
needs to be replaced.
Here is a close-up of the rotating sprinkler nearest to the camera in the
photo above. This one will be replaced.
This image shows all five of the pop-up sprinklers that do not rotate, but
do have 180 degrees of coverage facing the street from the edge of the
sidewalk. Half of the grass in this area was killed by the debris from the
hurricane last year.
This is the rotating sprayer seen in the photo above. It is working
This image shows the TWO shrubbery sprayers behind the shrubs that are in
front of the garage wall on the southeast corner of the house. The stain
on the wall was done by that sprayer that was incorrectly aimed until I got in
here to point it outward (south). These are part of the zone that covers
the remainder of the pop-ups between the sidewalk and the street.
This image shows a trickle of water from the three pop-ups marked by the
I took this photo to show where all the water is going. I discovered
the underground pipe has a crack between the last two pop-up sprinklers in this
zone. A large tree root is the problem here. I was planning to
replace the broken pop-up at the end of the line where the water is bubbling
up. The crack in the pipe cannot be easily repaired. I had to dig to
find this sprinkler under ground level by at least 3 inches. I probed with
a screwdriver to find it.
This is the last pop-up sprinkler before the cracked pipe. I will be
digging down here to cap off the underground pipe and make this one the last one
in the line. I can cover that area by adjusting the sweep of the rotating
head on the north side of the sidewalk.
