    16' stream Low Angle.

    There is 1 contractor who uses at least 3 per garden job he does. He just cranks it down to the size of the are to be sprayed, but it is still a stream. :realmad:

    I just don't understand. :dizzy:

    Theory behind them is the stream will penetrate the foliage better, and the low angle is designed to spray under the plants. Instead of putting the nozzle on a riser that keeps getting added to as the landscape grows they are placed low.
