"Do not use parts from Home Depot or Lowes, even if they are made by commercial companies. Most companies (K-rain and Rainbird etc) have two lines, and their cheap line goes to the home hardware stores. These are garbage. The same goes for anything that Orbit makes."

personally i`ve never had any problems with RainBird stuff no matter where it came from...but you are right on the money about Orbit...my customers ask me about them and i tell them no way, i only recommend RainBird stuff.

Stupid question, but I have always wondered. Are the RB5000 series rotors found at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. worse quality than the RB5000 series you would find at a pro supply house?

Since only the pro supply house stuff gets sold with an over-the-counter replacement guarantee, the question never arises.
