These provide great coverage, but DO YOUR HOMEWORK!

I'm giving this 4 stars because of the poor advice we received from the Drip Store. ** Correction: I would say it was probably miscommunication. The diagrams and plans made up for our trees were great.

This sprayer should NOT be used outdoors. Unfortunately, the Drip Store recommended these for our outdoor tree nursery and keeping them about 6' above the seedlings. Not Good.

The spray is beautiful, fine, and does a great job soaking the whole plant. But the slightest breeze blows most of the water off of the rows of trees.

In conclusion, use these only indoors, in places without a breeze, or a maximum of 3' above your plants.

We appreciate this customer’s comments and apologize for any miscommunication. Micro sprinklers and sprayers do have a small droplet size when compared to traditional overhead sprinklers, and spray patterns might be affected by wind elements.  As this customer points out, you may need to take steps to reduce the effect of wind on micro-irrigation systems in general, such as wind blocking or placing the sprinkler closer to the application.  Due to their slightly larger droplet size, it’s best to use “sprinkler” type inverted watering devices, with radial positioning (overlap spray pattern), when installing out-of-doors in windy conditions.  Often, sprinklers well-suited for outdoor use will have much higher GPH, which could lead to an increase in bottom-line costs -- requiring perhaps more zone valves, control units, and supply tubing -- to support a relatively high system flow rate which draws from a single water connection.
