What are some common sprinkler systems?

Thumbtack Editors

Some of the most common types of sprinkler systems are as follows:

  • An underground (or in-ground) sprinkler system. This option puts all tubing buried underground and out of sight. It may contain pop-up sprinkler heads that disappear from view when not in use.
  • Fixed (or stationary) sprinklers are good options for smaller yards.
  • Oscillating sprinklers spray a curtain of water back and forth. This type of system tends to be the most common.
  • Rotating (or rotary) sprinklers. This type of sprinkler sprays water in a circular, 360-degree pattern.
