Rotating Nozzles (2014)

Download the Report

INTRODUCTION
Urban irrigation primarily applies water to either turfgrass or ornamental planting areas. The two most common types of sprinklers are spray and rotor heads. A new sprinkler in the landscape irrigation arena is the multi-stream, multi-trajectory (MSMT) rotating nozzle. The technology is relatively new, with small rotating nozzles introduced in 2001 by the Walla Walla Sprinkler Company, a subsidiary of the Nelson Irrigation Corporation. Since then, a number of irrigation manufacturers are now producing and selling MSMT rotating nozzles: Hunter Industries, K-Rain, Rain Bird, and Toro Company.
This Potential Best Management Practice (PBMP) report focuses on the ability of the MSMT rotating nozzle to save water and the operational feasibility, and provides a recommendation of the device’s merit as a PBMP.
