    My question is my local dist. Central is trying to get me switched to the Ultras I normally use PGPs and aside from a leaker here and there I have had great luck with them Cost is only 1 more per head. I was going to go) 5000 but this year I replaced more than I would like to see in less than 5 year old heads

    Depends on your water supply. The unltra uses I-20 nozzles and the assortment dosnt go as low as reg pgp nozzles do.

    Only a dollar more, which they try to extort from the contractors by placing PGPs in Home Depot stores. :realmad:

    I've used several cases of I20 and most homes are on wells here with not great pressure and or flow the PGP can work on a bit less of both. The I20 I can only get 3to 4 heads on a Zone with the PGP I can cover a lot more area with 6 or 7 and still be safe. I just haven't used the PGP ultra yet I do like the I nozzles. I liked the RB5000 but as said above I have replaced cases of them this year that were leaking seals on the 1st ones from 4-5 yrs ago.

    I have yet to see them in my local HS stores...If the HO can pay more and install quick, they are saving $$...Might be 2X what a installer pays but installers will up-sell from 65 to $75 per head installed.
