SPRINKLER OUTPUT WORKSHEET

 
To measure sprinkler output:

1. Set out 6 identical straight-sided cans,
placing them between sprinkler heads and
the edges of their farthest watering patterns.
2. Run your sprinkler for 10 minutes.

3. Pour all the water collected in the cans into one can.

4. Measure and record the depth of the water.
This is your sprinkler’s output rate in inches per hour.

5. If you use several different types of sprink-

Lers  to water your bluegrass, or have an auto-

matic sprinkler system with more than one

zone, repeat  this process for each sprinkler

type or zone.

6. Record your output rates for future reference.
