    Why always SAM heads? I carry a few on my truck, and after a install if I notice on particular head is draining out badly, I'll swap it for a SAM (it takes 2 seconds to unscrew the cap and change it), but theres absolutely no point in using a SAM head for everything.

    Remember, only the lowest head or two is going to drain.

    While we are on that note. SAM heads on risers will freeze and burst, because they dont drain.

    every head on the property gets a SAM(rotor or spray), that way whoever installs it I know it would be draining no matter where they install it. I dont put heads on risers I use a PA8S which is a shrud head adaptor for a riser that way there is no 'unsightly head on a stick' in the middle of a fence, garden, or against the home....

    Did you read my post correctly? Only a few of those heads are going to drain. Your wasting money.

    agreed.... I only buy like 10 at a time and use them when the situation calls for it...

    it'd have to be a pretty steep slope from the valves to the first head on the zone to make it leak too much
