What is a Sprinkler Station?

A Watering Made Easy Sprinkler Station is a lawn Sprinkler that works with a garden hose. It stays aimed between uses by hiding below ground.

Is a Sprinkler Station easy to install?

YES. A Watering Made Easy Sprinkler Station is easy to install. If you can plant a flower, you can install a Sprinkler station. Just dig a 10″ hole, place the sprinkler and fill the hole back up. Aim it one time and you are done. Easy to follow instructions with photos are included.

Can I use more than one Sprinkler Station at the same time?

The number of sprinklers you can run at the same time depends on your specific water pressure and available flow rate. Most homes can run 2-3 at the same time, but some can only run one. Flow rate is probably more important that pressure…

Can I hook multiple Sprinkler Stations together?

We recommend a splitter at the spigot and then bringing a hose to each sprinkler.
Some people do run a hose as a header, using hose mend kits and y-splitters to make the tees for the branches to the sprinklers, however this can cause problems with pressure drop along the main hose and cause the sprinklers to fail to rotate properly.

Will Sprinkler Stations start watering automatically?

While there are timers on the market that can start the water, we recommend a shut of timer. Our recommendation is to disconnect the hose after each use.

How much lawn does a Sprinkler station cover?
  • The Original Sprinkler Station is for large areas. It is an impact sprinkler that covers a 35-40 foot radius and the distance can be turned down to spray about 16 feet. It is adjustable to water a full circle, or any angle between 30 degrees and 340 degrees.
  • The JR Sprinkler Station is a fan type spray for small/medium areas. It covers a 15 foot radius and the distance can be turned down to spray about 8 feet.. It is adjustable to water a full circle, or any angle between 15 degrees and 360 degrees.
  • The SQUARED Sprinkler Station is a fan type spray that covers a 9×18, 4×15 or 4×30 foot rectangle. The distance can be turned down to spray a smaller area.
How much water pressure and flow will I need?
  • The Original Sprinkler Station sprays 2.45 gallons per minute (GPM) a distance of 36 feet at 25 PSI. For every 5 PSI it will add about 1 foot to the distance and about 0.3 GPM to the flow. The maximum recommended pressure is 50 PSI.
  • The JR Sprinkler Station requires 25-50 PSI. At 30 PSI, the JR sprays a distance of 15 feet, about 3.2 GPM when set to spray a full circle.
  • The SQUARED Sprinkler Station requires 25-50 PSI. At 30 PSI, the SQUARED sprays a distance of 15 feet, about 0.9 GPM.
My Original Sprinkler Station does not rotate properly?
  • With the sprinkler spraying, flip the “paper-clip” type metal lever up and down. Then flip it back down. Often this will reposition it slightly in relation to the plastic clips and solve the problem. Make sure the “paper-clip” type lever isn’t stuck on a plastic clip.
  • With the sprinkler spraying, rotate the black plastic clips that set when the sprinkler reverses direction to another position and back to the desired position. Often this will reposition them slightly in relation to the “paper-clip” type lever.
  • Make sure the water is turned up all the way. The distance in controlled at the sprinkler head using the diffuser screw not by turning the water down at the faucet.
  • Try running fewer sprinklers at the same time. Too much, or too little water pressure can cause the sprinkler not to rotate. The recommended pressure is from 25-50 PSIG. Too little flow rate can also cause the sprinkler not to rotate. Each Original Sprinkler Station sprays about 3 Gallon/minute (GPM). Many homes have about 8 GPM, so people can often run 2 Sprinklers with no problem, but 3 is close…..
  • Try using a different spigot if you have one, or running fewer sprinklers at the same time. Depending on where the spigot is, the water use in the home can effect the water flow available and the pressure. In a home with 50 PSI of pressure, and 8 GPM available, a spigot that comes off of the water supply to your home, before it goes through the house can probably run 2 or 3 sprinklers. If the spigot is on the far side of the house, and the pipes run through your house to get to the outdoor spigot, 1 or 2 sprinklers may be the max.
  • Try replacing a leaky hose. While small leaks in a hose and connections should not matter, if you are right on the line of too little flow or pressure, and have a very old/leaky hose, it could cause a problem.
  • If you have a timer or splitter, test the unit with nothing in line between the spigot and hose. Many timers, and splitter reduce the flow and pressure immensely. There are “full flow” timers and splitters available in the marketplace.
  • Try cleaning the mechanism with a garden hose… use a block of wood or quick connector to prevent the sprinkler from dropping, then spray the mechanism with a garden hose to clean out any dirt that may be in there.

Holes fill with water.

It is common for the holes where the sprinkler pops from and the hose connects to fill with water. The water that is used to drive the mechanism drops right near the head and the holes are the lowest point. Sprinkler Station performance is usually not effected, however, if performance is affected, please contact us.
