    It's funny/sad when I talk to some of my friends who are in irrigation as well about nozzling for matched rates. They look at me cross eyed when I tell them you are not supposed to put 3 gpm nozzles in every head.

    TomTom texted be the other day, as he was going to a job where another company had replaced all the heads. Now all the heads were "spraying everywhere". When he got there, all the PGPs were #9 nozzles :dizzy::dizzy:
    Not sure why the other company wasn't going back.

    The Rain Bird heads would have been my first choice if this was an install.

    Since it's a retrofit on a budget, I'll see if I can swap out the guts on any that leak around the wiper seal.

    Did a test late yesterday and the red nozzles are a perfect fit. I also have some of the blues though. Not sure if they'll give better coverage or not. I'll look at the charts.

    Fortunately, only about a dozen heads need attention. The rest should respond to some tweaks of the radius adjustment screw. They seem to be throttled down too much.

    The big plus is today should be 15 to 20 degrees cooler than yesterday, back down in the mid 70s.

    I had a brand new orbit and a brand new hunter pgp about 10 years ago , when I looked they both had the exact same patent number on the bottom . They were the same head , same adjustment key .

    So, is it possible to just change-out the guts and enter a PGP?
