The Drip Store’s line of spinner type micro sprinklers presents an advanced concept in micro irrigation systems. The bridge type micro sprinklers operate using a spinner, which is seated on a nozzle or orifice, usually within some types of bridge design. When water passes thru the nozzle it spins the spinner, which throws the water in a full circle to the diameter determined by the flow rate and pressure.

The micro sprinkler design has the spinner mounted between the bridge and the nozzle and the spinner can be changed by removing the nozzle with the spinner. The micro sprinklers can be used in orchards under a tree canopy, and for ground-cover, seed germination and flowerbeds. The micro sprinkler’s spinner design determines the spinner propulsion at lower pressure. The micro sprinklers use interchangeable components with a number of spreaders (sold separately) suitable for 90 degree, 180 degree, and strip pattern. The micro sprinkler comes with quick thread base and may be purchased as an assembly with spike, 24” micro tubing and barb by ordering part number MSA005.

Installation for Bridge Type Micro Sprinklers

To install the 360 degree micro sprinkler use the complete assembly with spike, micro tubing and barb. The micro sprinkler is used with one of the poly risers available in our accessories section. To replace the head of the micro sprinkler or to change the spinner, see details in the attached file: For detailed information of how to replace the spinner with a spreader, please open this link: Instruction Manual.

To install the micro sprinklers, first select the flow rate and the micro sprinkler diameter. If using the complete assembly micro sprinkler with the spike and the micro tubing, first insert the spike into the ground about 2-4”, then punch a hole into the side of the drip tubing using a punch, and then insert the barb on the micro tubing into the drip tubing.
