I'm going to be working on a design tonight for a private school. is it worth the extra $ for the hunter Institutional Spray Sprinklers? or just stick w/ the pro-sprays. just curious.

That would be best answered by the Purple primer drinker..I've been a 1800
RB & Weather Matic brass nozzle user since I got out of irri 101.:)

Only real diff I know of is the institutional comes with the PRS, on the pro it is optional.

A couple of other smaller items:

Institutional pressure range is a bit higher
Institutional check valve is a little better
Pro has more sizes to choose from

i saw they had a warranty (the institutional sprays, but I never have them break to start with so don't know if its worth the cost

Quite a while back Buckner put out what they called "coal brass" nozzles. I think the idea was that it was black and wouldn't draw vandals' attention. Not sure if you could still find them.

Found this using Google.

And with CoalBrass™, you have all the benefits of brass nozzles without as much risk of theft. That’s because CoalBrass™ looks like plastic so it doesn’t attract attention.

Both work nicely Brandon. We use the I-Spray because we run into a lot of systems with booster pumps on them. If you're not going to be running into high pressures then I'd just use the Pro-Spray.
