# How many sprinklers do I need?

**sprinkler**head and nozzle will consume different amounts of water. For example, at 35 pounds per square inch (PSI) the 5000 Series Rotor using the 3.0 nozzle will use 3.11 gallons per minute (GPM). If your home's water capacity was 10 GPM, you could place 3 heads per zone.

Also asked, how many sprinklers do I need calculator?

The number is how **many sprinkler** heads you **need** to spray in a full circle, 360 degrees. Count the dots on the borders marked with one-half circles, and make a note of that number. Count the corner dots with one-quarter circles, and write down that number.

Likewise, how many sprinklers can I run at once? For example, you generally have a flow rate of 10 gpm from a ¾-inch spigot where you connect your hose. With your 10 gpm flow rate at your spigot, you **could run** two **sprinklers** at 5 gpm each. The best set-up is to **run** two hoses from the spigot–each to **one sprinkler**.

Then, how many sprinklers per zone do I need?

The chart will tell you the radius of the spray and GPM of flow for different pressures. Divide the GPM flow through your water system by the GPM flow through the **sprinklers** at your available pressure. Round down the nearest whole number. This is the maximum number of **sprinklers** you can use **per zone**.

What size sprinkler head do I need?

Types of **Sprinkler Heads** Spray **heads**: Best used for small to medium sized lawns and/or in systems that will be operating with pressure between 20 - 30 PSI. Because of the lower PSI the distance of the spray rarely exceeds 15ft. Meaning that spray **heads should** never be placed further than 15 ft.
