I recently installed 4 rainbird 5004 rotors using 6.0 nozzles (for 360 degree radius).
The nozzles are supposed to be ‘rain curtain’ but when the water comes out, it comes out like a straight shot of water instead of spreading out evenly via raincurtain. I can see a circle imprinted on the grass where the water hits it.
Has anyone else experienced this issue? Ive replaced the nozzles with brand new nozzles just to rule out the issue being a faulty nozzle. Also, I recognize I could twist the screw on top to create more of a spread but that would also reduce the radius and would prefer to not have to do that.
Hopefully I’m not the only one who experienced this…
Btw - i also have 42SA rotors (which are supposed to be identical) and they produce what i would consider the ‘rain curtain’
