In 1933, a Californian citrus farmer revolutionized the food and agricultural industry with the invention of the impact sprinkler. His name was Orton Englehart and he is the founder of the Rain Bird Corporation.
They continue to lead the way with proven reliability in a wide range of residential, commercial, and industrial installations. Rain Bird delivers products that will turn a new customer into a loyal one.
Impact Sprinkler Benefits
Although impact sprinklers tend to be pricier upfront, data has proven that they last longer compared to a plastic sprinkler head. The reason is that Rain Bird impact sprinklers are made with durable materials like Delrin plastic and long-lasting brass that are corrosion resistant.
Rain Bird products are recognized for their line of dependable performance among landscapes, golf courses, and sports fields. If your water supply has hard water or heavy mineral content, the Rain Bird Impact Sprinkler is the perfect solution.

Additional Impact Rotor Benefits
The Rain Bird impact sprinklers offer many benefits like stream length, flow rate, and precipitation per hour radius that can't be matched. The straight-through flow design makes the impact sprinkler the preferred choice when using reclaimed water which is known to clog and corrode when compared to other sprinklers.
The Rain Bird Mini-Paw Pop-Up Rotor Sprinkler features a 3 in. high rotor that can clear tall grass. It can be used in low-pressure and low gallonage conditions, providing up to 4,070 sq. ft. of watering coverage. The sprinkler's brass-weighted PJ spray guiding arm provides superior stream control to prevent side splashes onto buildings and walkways.
Non-potable Impact Sprinklers
Non-potable impact sprinklers are marked with a purple cap so they can be easily identified. It means that sprinkler heads use reclaimed or non-potable water, water that should not be consumed but can be used for irrigation purposes.
This is a great solution to conserving water when it's necessary. In fact, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, non-potable water reuse is one solution that can help communities reclaim, recycle, and then reuse.
