need advise on sprinker heads


I have a about 25x25 area of grass with 12 sprinker heads separated into 3 zones.

My sprinker heads are completely missing the grass closer to the nozzle in some area due to the nozzles are only getting the area at least 4-5 feet away leaving a lot of brown spots.

I'm looking to replace either the head or the entire body with something that can provide better coverage throughout. Can you recommend a good one?

I found that rainbird has a U series which supposed to provide better close range area. Before I jump on it, just wanted to see what everyone is using.

I like the rotary nozzles Rainbird R-VAN over the fixed spray. Do your head spray patterns overlap?

They do overlap but it just doesn't seem to have enough of it.

Re: need advise on sprinker heads


Probably your water is coming out in a fine mist....is there a way that you can adjust to shorten the throw..and produce larger drops...which might help. Are there other nozzles that are interchangeable ?

It was not clear to me...are these the old brass pop ups or something else ?
