    I'm going to be working on a design tonight for a private school. is it worth the extra $ for the hunter Institutional Spray Sprinklers? or just stick w/ the pro-sprays. just curious.

    That would be best answered by the Purple primer drinker..I've been a 1800
    RB & Weather Matic brass nozzle user since I got out of irri 101.:)

    Only real diff I know of is the institutional comes with the PRS, on the pro it is optional.

    A couple of other smaller items:

    Institutional pressure range is a bit higher
    Institutional check valve is a little better
    Pro has more sizes to choose from

    :: Note to self, teach ML how plastics are worthy of consideration and in some cases more desirable than brass when he doesn't come to visit :: ;)

    i love to use brass, but we have enough problems with stuff "disappearing" around here. every once in a while some of our stuff at the nursery (all brass ag grade stuff, will "disappear" i can just imagine that in a public setting

    i saw they had a warranty (the institutional sprays, but I never have them break to start with so don't know if its worth the cost
