    Just by precip rate, the 02 and 93 nozzles were a good match. Putting a 63 nozzle on a quarter-circle head was asking for trouble (only one stream in operation at times equaled stopped rotation)

    Every time we all talk about 'Streamies', I'm reminded of the client who said, upon first start-up, "I don't think you should look at them for too long." Thumbs Up

    Nope, he meant 'mesmerized'. His wife also commented, 'watching them is like sitting around a campfire." :nod:

    I had some customers with a screened-in back porch with 300-series shrub heads on risers surrounding it. They liked to sit there after coming home from work, and enjoy some evaporative cooling provided by that shrub zone.

    I have the MP rotators and thinking about switching to the R-Vans. The Mp rotators just puts too little water output. But I have over 60 heads. Don't feel like spending all that money.

    For now, I just have to let it run a little longer. About 20 mins per zone.

    Be aware the RVANS use more water, better make sure you have it available before switching

    More water but less run time. Doesn't that even out?
