I don't understand why this thread hasn't been moved to the homeowners forum yet...

I read this statement, and it doesnt make sense, but I dont know how else to write it. Writers block?
I am running all three zones at the same time from the pump, the gage is showing about 33psi so I think pressure regulator is useless…

And you will need 10 heads at 20'.
Why 5500's at 20' is a bit silly?
I am thinking now to use 5000 SAM SS
What do you recommend?

Unless you.have beach sand for soil, you will get little benefit from heads with stainless steel risers. They are not one tiny bit more rugged than their plastic equivalents.

20 foot square spacing is not all that far from what was done with spray heads in the olden days. Ever consider not using rotors at all?

The pressure 33psi is to small for 40’ spacing
