Nope.... not an engineer. Just a landscaper who has never professed to be an expert at anything. But over the 5 years that I worked behind the counter I saw more than a few heads of all makes and models that dumb$hits had hosed down with WD-40 in the hopes of making them work. But hey since you ARE a self professed expert in EVERYTHING irrigation related then who am I to question you.... keep hosing away buddy.... and I'll keep laughing at your old a$$.

I haven't broken two of them down to compare. Functionally, the MPR40 stem is easier to adjust and the obvious pressure differences. Basically the MPR40 is just a repackaged institutional spray.

Reminds me of that old line (WD-40 is just fish oil) : "What's that smell like fish mama? Can't be sardines 'cause they come in a can, you been truckin' with another man."
