safe-T-Lawn has gone Bye Bye. They came in business in the spring of one year, produced over a million heads, and went out of business in the fall of the same year. Replace with the Hunter PGP

I checked the hunter pgp, but the area I am watering is between homes, usually about 9-15 feet apart.Are the hunter pop ups good also?
These are in a manufactured home community little pieces of grass all over the place. Thank You

If you need a spray head get RAINBIRD 1800 series with "U" series nozzles. The nozzles may be expensive, but however, they have great coverage.

On those rainbirds does the adjusting screw mate up to a seperate seat? We have always run the heads w/o the strainers, what is your thoughts on that.Thanks

What exactly do you mean?

I don't recommend you run nozzles without the strainers. You never know what could be in the line, and most of the time prevent you from having to replace the nozzles every so often. Why not put them in?

On some of the new heads like toro, the buttons came with a seat on the underside ,I did not see any on the rainbird, I was curious what the adjusting screw mated up to. Right now we are clearing buttons every now and then, little pieces of debri get lodged in them. With the strainers in place the flow will drop but the pattern will remain uniform when they start to glog. Is that the theory? I don't know why we never used the strainers, I will have to look into it. Thank You

There might be a little difference, but not much.

I have 13 Safe-T-Lawn pop-up sprinkler heads. They measure 4" across ( the pop up head is 2 & 1/4" ) and 4 & 1/2" tall. I also have 9 Rain bird Sprinkler heads that measure 6 & 3/4" across and are 11" tall. These are brand new and are in the original box. They appear to have a 3/4 " pipe inlet. Is there any where I can sell these? Thanks, Tim Maher
