    I went around and around with Hunter reps for 2 years before I had to switch. They would never admit to a product defect or improvements being made.

    I find this a couple years later.:hammerhead:

    The wiper seal causes them to leak around the cap threads.

    Seriously, I hate when that happens. Screws up a 5 minute head change. Unscrew the old, screw in a new one. Make a dry adjustment. Turn on water and the tard-bas is leaking at the screw-top. Thinking you can get out the driveway real quick, then you have to dig out the whole thing. :cry::mad:

    Usually I see the water gushing around the riser shaft when the wiper seal is shot.

    and it's no simple job to replace the seals in a PGP.
    You're much better off replacing the whole head with a 5000 that has a 5 year warranty.

    And as you say a lot of times they are just loose , and that brings us right back to your pic of the dingy owned by the guy in the head tightening buss.

    I dont know about others , but I actualy like selling sprinkler heads.

    I never replace the seals. Remove guts and swap or replace the whole unit.
