The top of the rotor helps you adjust the spray (fanning out or stream) and rotation (all the way to full circle).

By turning the screw clockwise the inset screw will imped the spray and fan out the spray as well as reduce your flow.

This might be your easiest and quickest method in reducing water to certain area that 4 rotors are hitting.

Good luck

Both. My installer has areas in my yard that get coverage from four rotors when other areas get very little water. I am trying to fix his mistakes and wondered if this options on the 5000plus is only for turning off the rotor or can be used to reduce the amount of water that comes out.

Why are you turning the valve down?
To reduce overall pressure or to save water?

Rainbird 5000+ Shut off Valve

Can I turn the shutoff valve slightly to reduce the flow or should I always use a different nozzle to reduce the flow. I tried slightly turning the shut off on one and it seemed to work to reduce the flow while still keeping a proper rain curtain pattern.
