I really don't like 20' spacing for the 5000s. Tough to get them adjusted down to that distance.

What's the static pressure? I wonder how MP Rotators would do on that lawn.

Not sure. But a 5000 with 25 psi at the head is going to throw 33 feet without any breakdown of the spray. That's 13' to shorten up. and that is the shortest distance they show in the chart. Operating range is 25'-50'. Low angle nozzles will get you starting at 25'.

Don't use MP rotators if you want to dump a lot of water down fast.

Without me going through the whole thread, was this the 60'x40' area? Could do three 5000s along each 60' edge at 30'. That would be the easiest, but not the most even coverage in some areas. I don't recommend it though.

If you are going with 20' spacing do not use rotors; 5000's or I-20's. They are not designed to be choked down that much. The better choice would be MP Rotators. I would use a 6" head with a check valve if you have elevation changes. Hunter pro-sprays or Rainbird 1800. 4" heads are overgrown easily by grass and stream is disrupted.

I donít know what spacing. The property is 60x40 and pressure at the head about 25psi.What would you do?
