    I have a 15EST Fixed nozzle for the 1800. This is their "end strip" model. My question is this, I'm getting a little side-to-side spray sort of like a 180. When I called Rainbird they said I would get a little water coming out of the sides. This doesn't make sense to me, is this somewhat true? There is not a lot of water coming out but enough to be frustrating since this nozzle is designed to be projected like a cone shape.

    Thanks. :confused:

    The rainbird EST' and SST's have some side spray, its annoying, but there isn't much you can do.

    The nozzles are made with the intention of their being able to cover their territory (at least three feet wide) without assistance from a neighboring nozzle.

    I can't think of a fixed spray nozzle that actually holds to its exact arc degrees. There's always some excess spray. :)

    If you dont want the side spray out of the 15est , then use a 15 van nozzle.
