Pop Up Distance

I'm looking to use pop up sprinklers to cover a narrow, but long section of grass. I want to use the 180 degree pop ups. I see they can cover 15'. Obviously, that is from left to right. But how far will it spray directly in front of the spray head? I need to water a 10' x 40' section, so I need it to spray 10' in width.

a 15' popup spray head will cover a semicircle with a 15' radius. You will want to use 10' heads and space them 10' apart to get head to head coverage.

Pete got it right on the dot. Make sure you keep the number of heads below the GPM capacity so the zone operates correctly.
