Sprinkler Donuts

“Sprinkler Donut” – Let the truth be told!

Hello, I’m the Florida lawn care professional that invented Sprinkler Buddy. I have replaced many broken sprinkler heads over the years, caused from the weight of my heavy zero turn mowers. I couldn’t see the sprinkler heads until the damage was already done. Many of the busted lawn sprinkler heads had the concrete donuts on them but they had sunk into the ground and the grass had completely covered them over, rendering them useless.

My invention Sprinkler Buddy doesn’t sink like the concrete donuts do after being installed, nor does it float away like the plastic sprinkler donut made by Orbit. Sprinkler Buddy keeps the sprinkler heads visible, therefore allowing the lawn mower operator to avoid them with the mower tiers.

The concrete sprinkler donuts are rather fragile despite their online description of being strong and durable. If you buy them, do not drop them on a hard surface, you’ll be picking up pieces. The concrete sprinkler donut and plastic sprinkler donut by Orbit also don’t do well in cold climates. They will easily break once frozen if ran over, sometimes even without being run over!

Sprinkler Buddy usually does cost a little more but as the saying goes!

Years past, concrete donuts were the only choice one had to help protect their sprinkler heads, then Orbit came out with their plastic sprinkler donut version of the concrete sprinkler donuts.

Both products have their advantages and disadvantages. (more…)

“Sprinklers” Pop-up Sprinkler Heads

Rotor and spray head sprinklers are often  referred to as pop up sprinklers. They both come in a variety of sizes from many different manufactures.  Some manufactures even make  commercial grades which are often installed by an irrigation professional, usually when a new lawn sprinkler system is being first installed.pop up sprinklers

Between many, the debate of how much better the commercial grade sprinklers are over their equivalent home owner models will always remain in a deep debate. (more…)
