  History
     
 

Butterfly Sprinkler Products started as a local business decades ago in the Slocan Valley in southeastern BC. The gravity cast, aluminum butterfly sprinkler head, as well as the all metal sprinkler spike and sled bases were first manufactured by Peter Makortoff. 

In 1975, Frank and Gail Powell acquired the operation and moved it to Crescent Valley and established as Butterfly Sprinkler Products. Frank expanded the product line following the theme of reliable, rugged, all metal sprinkler bases. He improved the sprinkler head design to increase its durability and the life expectancy of the moving parts. Frank successfully operated the business providing quality products until retirement in 2014.

Some of the original equipment is still in use today.
