    In California you will pay about $300 to $500 per valve station installed, including parts. Make sure the installer ONLY does sprinklers and not a concrete guy or gardener who does them on the side (you'll get ripped off most of the time because they usually don't know what they're doing). You can normally put up to 15 pop-ups (but better to stop at 12) on a single valve and for lawn they should be no more than 10-12 feet apart, giving you head to head coverage. Make sure they install a separate shut of valve for the sprinkler system so you can turn off the water to the sprinklers without turning off the water to the house.

    No they are economic. The cost varies from country to country in any case it costs around 25USD$ to 50$. Some spriklers are fitted on running water lines some are handoperated.
