maxipaw and pgp-atr

Will somebody please tell me can I put a maxipaw and pgp-atr or any rotor on the same zone together? I notice the precip. rate favors the rotors over an hour period, but what about 15 min. Does the rotor travel back and forth 180 degree enough in 15 min. verses the maxi?

Yes, you can have any mix of rotors (any brand or any model rotor) on the same zone together as long as you match the precipation rates. Anotherwords, you just need to use a nozzle in the PGP-ATR rotor that matches the water output of the Maxi-Paw rotor. If the Maxi-Paw rotor is applying 3 gpm (very common) then use a nozzle for the PGP-ATR that outputs 3 gpm. The PGP-ATR rotors come with a complete set of nozzles (if you purchase them from so you can use the one you need to match the Maxi-Paw water output.

The PGP-ATR was designed and built to replace the Maix-Paw rotor. In fact that is the only thing it can be used for. The PGP-ATR is a PGP Rotor that has the threads on the bottom of it to allow it to be screwed into a Maxi-Paw canister base after you remove the MAx-Paw rotor guts from the canister or body in the ground.

To help you figure out how much water your Maxi-Paw or PGP-ATR rotors are outputting here are nozzle charts below:

I hope this helps.
