Sprinkler Head Properties

The properties used to modify a Sprinkler Head object are located to the right of the screen when your sprinkler head is selected. These properties can either be adjusted right before adding the sprinkler head to your landscape or after it has been added. Below is a description of each available property in the order that they appear in the software.
