      For example; for a 2 foot head
      42 inches of clear space for installation is required.
  2. What are the maintenance requirements?
    1. Once per year check the fluid in the bottle making sure that at least one to two inches of fluid remains in the bottle at all times when retracted. Other than this, the sprinkler head is maintenance-free for up to seven years.
