Hunter And Rainbird

Do I use a Hunter 1-20 Or a RainBird 5000 to throw water 25-30 feet?

I am borderline on suggesting for you to use an I-20 rotor for throwing 25 - 30 feet. You should use a rotor that is designed for that small of throw, Hunter PGM rotor or Rain Bird 3500 series or 5004 series rotor. The I-20 would have to be turned down a lot which could mess up the uniformity of spray (unless you use special low angle short distance nozzles). You can use the I-20 if you use their low angle short radius nozzle, however, you will need to request the special nozzles when you order the I-20 rotor. I think the I-20 is built higher quality and has more features than the Rain Bird rotors mentioned above, however, all these rotors are of very high quality. Your choice...

For more on radius and arc adjustments see the following link on our website for the I-20 rotor:

Or go in between the two and use a PGP. We have started using I_20's on everything we used to use PGP's on just because they are more durable and come with a check valve assembly.

Peresonally, if you are going to use a PGM, go ahead and jump up to the PGP. Use smaller, low angle nozzles and you will be fine. The PGM seems to fail more.

I would use the Hunter PGP or the Rainbird T=bird because the hunter i-20 requires more pressure , although you can use a smaller nozzle. I personally would use the PGP

Hope that helped

Look....See the origin of the post is over a year ago? I think that I'm done with my irrigation classes. Don't recover topics that have been already covered.

What do you mean what areas? Where I live? Residential, Commercial?

I'm just a solo man that does it myself but very efficiently. I can have a 10,000 square foot yard done in about 3 days by myself.
