It's to my knowledge that they aren't of the same quality as the ones many professionals install when first having their Hunter sprinkler system installed. Is that true?

Lowe's a few years back started carrying K-Rain heads. Which I was told have the same mechanism in them as the Hunter heads. K-Rain split off from Hunter once their contract had expired and went into business for themselves.

Can any of you shed some light on this matter? I'm sure the American people would appreciate it as would I.

Hunter, Rain Bird, Orbit, and K-Rain are often the brands I physically see in our Big Box Stores. Is that the case where you live?
Sorry buddy, i drive 100 mile turnaround to either Normac or Ewing and i liue 7 miles from a professional irrigation supply house. My loyalty has been earned by these companies.
