    I've created this thread for BillMc........

    "I wonder if anyone can help me with a watering issue? I've got a 40 metre micro line with 20 sprinklers on it and attached to the outside tap. Only 5 of the sprinklers are working and only spraying about 7 inch diameter. I fitted a booster pump and still only the 5 sprinklers are working but the range has increased to about 18 inches. Any help gratefully received"

    I'm sure some of the GC Gang will be able to help him.

    The sprinkler heads can block. Either replace them or winkle about with a pin in them to clear them out. If they can be unscrewed and re-inserted, then you can blow through them the wrong way to dislodge the blockages. My greenhouse sprayers often did this.

      Hi,

      Just wonder if the hose to tap fitting, or a watering timer if used, or the micro line connector has an inbuilt pressure restricter ?
