    We have 15 pgp ultra sams, 5 pgp's , 2 pgh's. and 20 rain birds 5000+ in our serivce trucks at any given week.

    I haven't touched the pgp's in like 8 months

    I have standard pgp's on my front property(3 zones and 12 heads) that I installed about 3 years ago. Not one has failed yet. I am going to add 4 zones to my back yard this summer and was thinking about trying the Rainbird 5004-PLPC-SAM-A-MATIC . I have heard so many people rave about their "rain curtain" nozzels and overall performance. I am just torn and wanted opinions of the guys that use them every day.

    I should make this very easy and just go with what has worked for me. If I did that,then,the question becomes,"standard pgp's" or " ultras" ? :hammerhead:

    We need another product tester/guinea pig around here, so install the RB 5000 and let us know how they fare against the PGP.
    Personally I prefer the 5000 over the PGP and Ultra.

    I still have some P-series in the ground. None of the original Series 075, though

    I might do some testing on spray type nozzles this summer if time permits it, but not rotors.

    Don't forget to test these ones too....

  9. A buck 87! That is a far better nozzle than any old plastic. looks like it fits RB threads as well.
