Help with sprinklers that Rainbird suggested that I can't find.

I had a design done for my front and back yard by Rainbird and they've provided me a list of RainBird sprinklers that I need. The list: 3-32SA/1.5, 5-42SA/1.5, 16-52SA/2.0, 2-52SA/3.0.

I've not done very well finding these sprinklers and I'm guessing that I can use other sprinklers from Rainbird that are in the contractor series. I am actually a Licensed water contractor if that helps.

Please help me decide on how to go about this.

Thanks very much,

Well, rainbird does have an online store front:

But at almost $20 a pop, seems like there's cheaper alternatives.

As an example, look at this price page from this forum's sponser:

About $10 each. So what is really the difference between the SA and these?

If you want rainbird go with the 5000+

I like the Hunter pgp and Weathermatic T3 rotors too

How do I choose which 5000 Rainbird rotors? Can I just match up the sprinkler distance?

Use a 5004. You might need some 3/4 x 1/2 threaded bushings for some of the connections.
