The Toro Precision Nozzles

If you got low pressure, low flow G.P.M. and you want to fix the poor design. This is not counting the possibility of a valve that needs to be replaced, leak in a lateral, partially open water supply.

The Toro Precision Nozzles are better than the hype. I recently had a .5" supply and had to design and install sprinklers on a budget. The nozzles were more expensive, but they saved me timer size, pipe, and wire. I am not a walking commercial for toro nozzles, but wow.

I am just saying for what it is worth. 8)

What pressure did you have? (static and dynamic)

I had 45 PSI static, did not run dynamic. It was a bid that I had given and I was pretty sure that I had 3/4 supply coming off of house plumbing. I peeled back the insulation and it was 1/2 inch. If you haven't tried them, and you get in a pinch, they will fix it. They come in male and female thread so specify female for compatibility with non Toro. Do the whole zone in them to see the real deal.
I have been off of the site for a couple days.

Thanks

Just this spring we did some work for the city irrigating some center medians along a county road. I used the the precision nozzles on that project and was able to install 72 sprays/zone. They were all 12ft halves. Had to get a little creative with the lateral lines, but what a savings! Precip. rates are lower, but who cares?! Still haven't installed them on a residential system, though. Still don't want another nozzle box in the service van.
