Hunter I-20 vs Rainbird 5000 Series

Quick question here,

I am between two sprinkler system estimates. One company uses Orbit Professional line (trying to get more info on this product in another post) for everything the other estimate uses Rainbird line for everything but gave me a choice of upgrading from the Rainbird 5000 Series Rotors to Hunter I-20 for cost which will cost me an additional $6 a head. Since I have only 20 rotaries, It will only be $120 additional.

Is it worth it for a residential application? Let me know your opinion on the I-20 heads vs the Rainbird 5000 series.

My PSI is 60.

Thanks in advance.

The Rainbird 5000 series is just fine for your application. Save the $120.00. Don't get me wrong, I install Hunter products, and the I-20 is a great head, but the 5000 is also a great head, and spending the extra money in your case is not needed. Anything over the Orbit products is a good start.

go with the Hunter I-20 they are well worth it. If you are worried about pressure you could always throw a 3/4 hp pump on and have great pressure around 100 psi.
