I am researching residental sprinkler systems. When determining the best system, I should consider rotor, spray, valve, controller and rainsensor. Can you explain the function of each piece? Are there any other items I should consider before purchasing?

Hey,
If by "which systems" you mean what are the best products here is my personal fav. list Of course depending on the size and pressure will determine the more specific usage of heads, controller size etc.

Rotor = Hunter PGP
Spray = Toro 570 (or) hunter PS (you have to buy seperate nozzles for 570)(best)
Valve = Irritrol 2400T
Controller = Hunter SRC
Rainsensor = Hunter Mini Click
1" Pipe
PVB or DC backflow (dont buy the toro pvb, they tend not to work
And of course what ever else your job calls for......those are the most widely used and best products on the market today


Thanks
