How is the RolaRain different from the Wobble-Tee?
The RolaRain Sprinkler concept was created to make a robust product more suited to the agricultural situations and commercial irrigation.
This new sprinklers performance is very similar to the successful Wobble-Tee Sprinkler, and the two types can be operated together on the same hose with no noticeable difference in the water application.
RolaRain Sprinklers are packaged and sent out unassembled which protects the components during transit. The instructions are quite simple for assembly, and putting the sprinkler together is a bit of fun for the kids and adults!
Pressure Gauged by Sight and Sound
The best operating pressure for even water distribution is 14psi (100kPa). It is hard to know what your pressure is, but it can be gauged by sight and sound with the RolaRain! If your pressure is too high the sprinkler will have misting close to the base and the droplets will be very fine, this is not ideal. By using your eyes turn the tap down until the misting goes away and larger droplets appear. Now using your ears, if the sprinkler top is making a swishing sound, turn the tap down until it is almost silent. This is approximately 14psi (100kPa) and at this pressure the RolaRain sprinkler is most efficient and delivers around 7 litres per minute, with a water diameter of 13 metres.
This sight and sound advantage will prove to be the best water saving feature of this sprinkler.
The wheels provide three distinct advantages. The sprinkler is easily seen by people and livestock. When the sprinkler is being pulled along by the hose or towed, the sprinkler base and hose connectors raise the body by 10mm which reduces wear to the sprinkler components and scuffing to the turf surface. Furthermore, if the sprinkler accidentally flips upside down during towing, the wheel height stops the sprinklers spinning top from hitting the ground.
Gel-Top XL Flexible Sprinkler Top
The spinning sprinkler top is made from a robust flexible material allowing it to bounce back from hits and knocks. This new Gel-Top XL flexible sprinkler top has exceptionally good water distribution at low pressures. The new Gel-Top XL sprinkler will also fit the Wobble-Tee Sprinkler base.
