Which Spray head?

Hey so i have 4 spray heads on the side of our lawn in between our driveway and the neighbors driveway. I want to replace all the spray heads. Was looking at the hunter spray heads there are bunch of different ones. We have about 65-70 psi pressure (pump installed). Which one should I get? Was thinking the hunter pro spray? Then i saw the hunter pro 40 spray so i didnt know which one I should purchase. Please let me know what you think thanks

you will need to determine what the radius of the sprinkler head needs to be to water the area properly and what the spray pattern each spray head you require is.
Then you need to measure how far it is from head to head on what you have now.
Then look at the sprays available and determine which spray head is best for your application.

Pay attention to the PSI that you have and try and determine what the psi will be at the spray head. Some heads work better at X psi than they do at x+ or x- psi.
There are spray bodies available with built in pressure regulators that can help with too high psi if that's the case

Recommend to read the irrigation tutorial in order to get a better grip on the situation.
