Best Kids’ Sprinklers: What are they?
Sprinklers are a great way to keep your home or office cool during summer. They provide quick and efficient cooling with minimal energy consumption. However, there are many types of sprinkler systems available today, some better than others. Some have timers; others don’t. Others come in different sizes and shapes; still others do not. There are even some that spray directly at the ground instead of up into the air.
When it comes to kids’ sprinklers, there are two main categories: those that shoot out water from above and those that shoot out water from below. Both types will work well for most applications, but which one is right for you depends on several factors including where you live and how much time you want to spend doing something else.
The first thing to consider when choosing a sprinkler system is whether it will fit in your space. If you’re looking for a place to put it, look for one that fits on top of a wall or ceiling. You’ll need room to move the unit once installed so make sure it doesn’t block any windows or doors. If you’re replacing an old sprinkler system, be sure to keep the old brackets, or get new ones if needed.
Next you’ll need to decide if you want a timer. Many sprinkler systems come with a built-in timer in order to conserve water and save on bills as not all of them are necessary for the whole day or night. If you do not want a timer you can simply get one that shoots water directly upwards. Then all you need to do is hit the start button and let the fun begin.
Also, if you have small children you will want one that has a safety cover over the sprinkler head so they don’t put their fingers or other objects into it. While some of the sprinkler heads on these systems are pretty high off of the ground, it’s best to be safe rather than sorry. It is possible to get a separate sprinkler head and have it installed on your system so you can have two separate sprinkler heads coming from one system.
If you want something in between a down and up type sprinkler, you may also consider getting one that sprays water from the side. These can situate themselves on the ground or on a wall and will provide a nice even flow of water for your kids to run through. They usually have multiple nozzles so you can adjust the spray of water to be wider or narrower. These also come with safety shut off covers, so you don’t have to worry about them getting their fingers stuck.
Deciding on which type is right for you mainly depends on your personal preferences and those of your children. Whichever one you choose, however, you’ll be sure to provide hours of fun in the sun!
