    I've searched and found a lot of info on lake/dirty water and valves and rotors but nothing on spray heads. Are the 1800 spray heads ok for lake water?

    Yes. They have screens before the nozzle that will catch the majority of the debris.

    I would also install a strainer right after the pump. Maybe even want to attatch a valve to it and set it to come on for 1 minute at the end of each cycle.

    I should have also acknowledged the Hunter spray heads will work just as well as the Rainbird sprays. Just don't use Toro.

    NEVER EVER use TORO, irrigation's own little four-letter word.

    I liked A1's idea of a purge valve.
