    This entire system has high pressure and of course a high water bill. Do you think 50 psi at the head is too much?

    Not a bad display...little bits of anything could be screwing up the pattern.
    18g wire cleans them out fine...how do you clean the plastic nozzles?

    So how much more water is coming out of this nozzle (percentage wise) at 50 psi compared to say 25 or 30 psi?

    Seems to me its 25% to 30% more. Does that sound right?

    I use the clean out needle/pin thingy on the Irritool to clean them out.
