Is the 570 series Toro the same as the 570Z series

<i></i><font face="Comic Sans MS"></font id="Comic Sans MS"><font size="4"></font id="size4"><font color="maroon"></font id="maroon">

I need to replace a cracked Toro 6" fixed spray, side inlet, 570series sprinkler. Is the 570Z series the same model or is it different? If it is different, where can I purchase the model that I need?
Many thanks for any help you can provide. I am new to this stuff. My system was installed by someone else.

The 570z is different. The 570z has a factory installed flow shut off device. If for instance the nozzle gets broken off and the flow changes the head will shut itself off. It all sounds good but but I have had a lot of problems with these heads. Save yourself a headache and just get a regular 570. You should be able to get them just about anywhere.

The 'Z' is just a designator for the current type of cap and seal used by the head. All 570's are of the Z form.

In general, you are better off using only the bottom inlet of any sprinkler head.

I stand to be corrected...the toro with the regulator is the prx, not the 570z.
