Orbit Sprinkler System DesignerMay 23, 2012
The Orbit Sprinkler System Designer™ is a unique combination of technology and Orbit’s high-quality irrigation products and service. It is the world’s first and only online, real-time, free sprinkler system design tool.
What does it do?
In a few easy steps the Orbit Sprinkler System Designer™ allows you to design a personalized sprinkler system based on your own property. When your design is complete you will have a visual plan to follow in addition to a parts list, price estimate, and instillation instructions. The parts list is compatible with all hardware/home improvement stores, so you’ll be able to find just what you need wherever you are.
What does it cost?
The Orbit Sprinkler System Designer™ is absolutely free. This same service can cost between $20-50 if contracted to a local irrigation store.
How do I get started?
Visit the Orbit Sprinkler System Designer™ website.
Once you are on the website, you can begin planning your sprinkler system by establishing the dimensions of your property. One of the most popular features is the ability to import a Google Maps image of your property and trace directly over it.
From there all you need to do is follow the simple steps laid out on the screen. You will be prompted to indicate the areas you don’t want watered as well as areas with special watering needs. The designer will help you lay out system features, determine flow rate, and let you know the number of manifolds you will need.
At this point you can immediately view your arcs, head placement, and piping layout.
When you are satisfied with your design, you can view the estimated price for your new system and print the necessary parts list.
