This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in November of 2018. When a standard model doesn’t provide the coverage your thirsty property requires, it’s time to turn to one of these impact sprinklers. As the water pumps out, it drives the sprinkler head in a circular motion, allowing it to cover more ground in a convenient, efficient manner. The resulting extensive spray radius and uniform water distribution will lead to happier, healthier lawns and plant life. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best impact sprinkler on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 08, 2018:

While most models feature brass heads, included the Orbit Yard in part to provide a zinc option. Noted the integrated stake on the Lawn Anchor Soil, which is a nice alternative to tripod models or sprinkler heads with no base at all. Although the Dalya Irrigation Atom28 doesn’t work with standard household water pressure, it’s a good choice for more commercial applications.
