If all you're wanting to do is change nozzles for different distance, contact your local RB distributor. They should have the old style nozzles in stock, saving you the cost of buying a head just for a nozzle.

Whether it's drops, droplets, or buckets, it only has to be spread evenly. Don't trust your eyes and inexperience. If you lawn gets even watering, that's all that matters. And for the record, if the watering could be done entirely with large drops, that would be preferred, because they aren't so easily blown about by the wind.

The older version seems to have larger droplets at the ridge of the arc. The newer ones seem to have a more uniform curtain....As I am not an expert I would encourage any response from some one that has had experience evaluating the difference.

What's wrong with the original nozzles in your sprinkler system?

Older Rainbird 5000 version

I have 105 RB 5000 rotors in my yard that were installed 5 years ago. The nozzles are green. Currently I purchased a set of 20 RB 5000 and the nozzles are dark blue. Both are curtain varieties. Is the new one better? I tried to purchase new nozzle trees to replace the old ones and they will not work. I hate to go to the expense of purchasing all new rotors just to replace nozzles.
