    Ignore boots .... he is being an ass.

    BTW ... I wouldn't recommend cranking down a full range rotor to 17 feet, or even 20 feet, regardless of what stated range is.

    Dancing Water effects like that vid or at many water parks/Disney etc would be a kewl thing in a front lawn. Charge admission to people as a relaxation site.

    5500's at 20' is a bit silly, and not recommended, as Kiril Said.

    And you will need 10 heads at 20'.

    Pressure regulated. It keeps all the heads pushing the same pressure for even coverage and volume. Will save water also.

    Assuming, of course, that the head is receiving as much if not more than the regulated pressure of the device. In otherwords, it regulates the pressure to a maximum, but does nothing to boost pressure in any manner.

    I read this statement, and it doesnt make sense, but I dont know how else to write it. Writers block?
