sch. 40 is not uv resistant and i would not suggest u use it. Use sch. 80 and if you're going higher than a few feet, i would suggest using either galvanized or copper (copper looks nicer)

I even bring my brass heads in and plug the lines [:)] . . .
and the MaxiBirds look like plastic.

Anyway, I've had advice to go with the rotors which was my original plan.

Take impact heads inside for winter? Going to read them bedtime stories?

Rotor or impulse on standpipe?

I'm going to place some of my perimeter rotors on scd 40 PVC standpipes attached to my 42" high 4x4 wooden fence posts.
I was going to use Rainbird 5000 rotors; however I also see a small impulse model, the Maxi-Bird, that would work.

My thought is that the rotors would overwinter OK, but I'd probably want to unscrew the impulse heads and take them inside.

Anyone have any thoughts? [:)]
