I knew a guy who worked for a competing company who used to keep clogged nozzles......instead of capping heads...

Weird-0.. I hope he is working at a bowling alley by now.

We had Weather-Matic supply us with blank brass nozzles to not only use as install caps, but to troubleshoot a possible leaking zone.

obviously not for troubleshooting zones with brass-body heads, since there were already nozzles with flow controls to fit them
