A client that I used to take care of installed spray heads for the beds of his front yard. The heads were connected to the hose bib via garden hose. Butcher.......

Wow,I am now a Rainbird Plus lover. Today,I ran 125 ' of 3/4" poly from tne main line above ground to mimic a zone to see what kind of nozzles I would be using. I attached 4 5004 heads .....3 full circles and 1 three quarters of a circle. I was concerned that with my pressure,since this zone is the most demanding,that head performance may suffer.

Well to my surprise,the 5004's worked beautifully.For the record,the total GPM of 9.04 was easily supported. I think they may even shoot further than the PGP's in my front yard.The shutoff feature alone is enough to sway me away from the PGP rotor. It made swapping nozzles a breeze as the body stays propped up....great feature.
