    Since this is the Rainbird 1800 series "entry level" 4" spray pop-up... what's their price on the 1804-SAM-PRS models? :)

    SAM heads are so overrated. There is no need for a checkvalve on every head, especially if you don't live in an area with lots of sloped terrain.

    Any 4" pop is dumb, being the modern mowing techniques are higher & the
    heads will get squished down....screw the good deal..use 6" for turf. SAMs
    are NOT over rated, they're needed if any kind of slope exists. We use SAM
    1800s period. The only 4" we use is the # 300 Stream-Rotor..which could use
    a 6" upgrade. Are you listening Toro????:hammerhead:

    Toro's too busy trying to convince installers that they need the TR-50 :p

    I've seen one system with 6" heads for turf. That's all. Not necessary IMHO. Set the 4" to proper grade level and all will be fine.

    Hey forget the 6" - make em all 12"!!
