Researched at the Research Table. After building one, place a sprinkler on the raft to water Grass Plots or Crop Plots. Waters a 3×3 area (see Gallery). The Sprinkler's water storage capacity is good for 30 uses. One Cup of water is good for six uses, meaning five cups of Fresh Water or Saltwater would fill the Sprinkler up entirely. Each object watered by the Sprinkler reduces its storage contents by one use. This means that a filled Sprinkler is able to water, for example, a single Grass Plot a total of 30 times before needing a refill.
In order to operate, the Sprinkler must be powered by a Battery. Each time an object is watered, the Battery is depleted by a single charge. It has a total of 50 charges, which means for every full tank of water, 30 out of 50 charges are used. This means that a single Battery is good for 1⅔ full tanks of water.
The Sprinkler checks every 5 seconds for a plant that needs watering, and activates whenever there is.
Since Update 12, the Sprinkler has a connection site for Water Pipes on the back, meaning that it can be connected via pipes to either an Electric Purifier directly or a Water Tank, allowing for its water supply to be automated. Battery swaps are still required though; these can be recharged with the Battery Charger also introduced in said update.
- Waters Crop or Grass plots.
- Fill with either Fresh Water or Saltwater.
- Can be connected to Water Pipes for automating the refilling process.
|Update 12||Sprinkler can now be connected to Water Pipes, allowing for automatic refilling.|
|Update 9||Sprinkler added to the game.|
