Yes the sprinklers cool everything down. That is one of the problems with drip. It goes directly to the root, bypassing the plant. I know that we are always told, dont water the foliage! DANGER DANGER!!!!! But in the instance of setting up shade cloth, its no harm. Just dont water to long, as it might cause bottom rot. You just want to cool the leaves and the air around the plants down.

Heres the exact product I use. It is probably compatible with what you already have.

Then you will need this, or something similar:
