Q: What size of hoses do I need?
A: The best size hoses to use are 3/4", instead of 5/8". All hoses have 3/4" fittings on the ends but the diameter of the hose varies. 3/4" is the best because it has less restriction and allows for less pressure loss.
Q. Can I use this for a rooftop garden?
A: It's perfect for a rooftop garden! You'll need the spider stand version, then Yard Camel up to a water source and use the spider stands to water.
Q: How much area will one of the sprinkler heads cover?
A: Each sprinkler head will throw approximately an 80' diameter.
Q: How many sprinklers can I run at one time?
A: This depends on how much water and pressure you have available from your water source. The valves in the Yard Camel box will flow enough water to run 2–3 heads. Included in your Yard Camel is 6 heads which is 2 per valve. You might find that you have low pressure and low flow and can only run 1 sprinkler per valve.
Q. I have a big area to water, can I use more than Yard Camel?
A: Yes! The Yard Camel can be daisy chained to as many as you need. A hose is required to connect them.
Q: Can I leave the Yard Camel outside?
A: Yes. The Yard Camel is housed in a weather resistant carrying case.

They are light weight and the legs fold in making them compact. This allows the Spider Stand to be safe and easy to carry up ladders, and allows you to quickly set up your watering zone. Spiders Stands also work well within your green house or in the middle of your garden. The elevation provided from the legs allows the impact sprinkler to stand above the vegetation, and will give you with the coverage needed, while not harming your plants.
The Yard Camel with the Spiked Sprinklers brings you the stability to stand up to the elements while giving you the efficiency to water your landscape.

The spiked sprinklers are a great option for watering your new turf area. Simply place the spiked sprinkler and let the Yard Camel take over from there. The spike will hold the impact sprinkler in place preventing it from tipping over while giving you peace of mind that your turf is being watered.
