    What is the best way to clean out rotory heads that have been partially clogged due to picking up sediment from a well system? Does the entire head have to be taken apart or just pull the nozzle out and run the zone for a bit to "flush" it out?

    Hunter rotaries have the 'cap' unscrew and you can pull the actual rotor assembl y out of the casing. On the bottom of this assembly is a basket filter, clean it out, and put it back in.

    Though, 75% of the time, the clog is actually in a marlex elbow before the head. At least out here.
