*and by high pressure I mean over 50 working.
sing in a falsetto?
they leak out the seals with precision
Who needs to worry about head to head watering anymore!
Just put in a few pgp's @ 30 feet apart with number 4 nozzles call it an install on to the next one.
I don't think they need 50+ to leak, they leak below 50. I was talking to a salesman the other day and made the comment how PGP's have made me money and realized I would make more money in the future if I replaced them with a PGP
...they rocketh mightily
Give the PGP 65 psi and watch that #11 nozzle make any I-20 look like a refuge from weenieville.
make you wish that you had installed a RB 5000+ series instead?
sounds like the installers around here, lol
Around here it's #6 or #8 nozzles, on the 1/4, 1/2 and full circle heads, all the same.
Above 50PSI they leak like crazy and launch the tops with regularity. I replace at least 10 to 1 PGP to everything else, partly because they're used more than any other head but also because they fail more frequently. I always replace with a PGP and the same nozzle unless I'm replacing every head in the zone and then I'll put in 5000's and nozzle them correctly. Just one head though, and I'm replacing like with like. PGP replacements probably account for close to 15% of my annual revenue.
I've been revisiting some installed PGP heads, to remove them, and tighten the cap, and reinstall them. Seems the assembly robots didn't eat their wheaties.
