spray nozzle radius

The info on the Hunter fixed spray nozzles lists a 17 ft nozzle. Does SprinklerWarehouse carry this? The online store only lists the 15 ft.

I am unaware of a fixed arc nozzle with a radius of 17'. You may be thinking of the adjustable arc nozzle with a 17' radius.

brass are also very expensive as compared to plastic although if they are installed correctly, they will last much longer than plastic. but its a very finiky install. honestly if you are looking to cover a 17 or 20 foot area....... a rotor with a low angle nozzle will do much better unless you are just a big fan of sprays.

the weathermatic brass nozzles will screw on in place of plastic nozzles on both the rainbird spray heads and hunter spray heads

man you people cant read. i said installing the head can be finiky, not the nozzle. i mean that they tend to stick more than a plastic one if it is installed a little to low. now a pro wouldnt have a problem with this, but a home owner may. but like i said, if your looking to throw 17-20 feet, use a rotor with a low angle nozzle.

no brass head - just the brass nozzle on a standard plastic popup

well if you want a brass nozzle that bad on a plastic pop-up, go ahead. should still use rotors in an area that size.
