We really like them allot and maybe I am misunderstanding your flow?

To cover 42' your would need to use a black #4 nozzle and have 40 psi at the head. They use about a gallon more than RB says they do, so you would get 3 heads and at the most 4 on the zone. For me, that is just cutting it too close since we design to use 85% max of what the water supply is putting out.

It is possible if you go by the numbers, I just hate worry about whether it is going work until we turn the water on

I am really interested to hear the outcome and you will really like the 5500 when you get a chance to use it. RB's new price on it makes it even better, plus the 3/4 swing joints save a little coin too.
