Optima UCR-1 Nozzle Replacement


I just had the the splines on my Meyer submersible pump strip out, so I replaced the pump and the bladder tank to the tune of a very hefty bill.

When the well guy was checking things over he fired up my sprinkler zones and noted that all but 1 of the 7 zones dropped the pressure to around 30 psi (dynamic). He informed me that I need to drop the nozzle size on my sprinklers to keep the pressure up around 50 psi while the sprinklers are running.

The problem I'm having is I have a bunch (20 or so) of Optima UCR-1 sprinklers, and I can find any parts for them. Does anybody know where I could find nozzles for these?

I pulled one sprinkler out so I could check it over and it is running a 3.0 nozzle, so I'm guessing I'd need a lower number nozzle to get a smaller hole size.

Thanks for your help,

You would need 2.0 nozzles made for the Rainbird R-50 rotor.
