    I just change out the leakiest first. I should change them all but sometimes it's a shock to the customer.

    Small water supplies stink, but they exist, and good work can be done with the PGPs on those supplies. Take away the red nozzles, and you have replacement problems.

    A PGP with a #2 red is probably putting out about 2 gpm once you count in the leaks around cap and wiper seal.

    I got a chuckle out if that post. Sadly your mostly right
    As I like to say who needs head to head coverage when using pgps. More like puddle to puddle coverage.
    I'd rather use the I-20 anyway.

    Boss is to tight.

    puddle to puddle coverage :laugh:

    Why I-20's ? Most small residentials won't have the pressure to run them plus you will be outbid every time. Time to switch brands. and I don't mean Toro.

    Its funny how ingrained the pgp is to the landscape industry. I have landscapers ask me why I am using those crappy heads and not the hunters. I use 5000 plus with the Sam.
