Note: Remember that the distance between rotor heads should never be greater than the PSI. Therefore rotors operating at 35 PSI should not be spaced farther apart than 35'. I don't recommend using nozzles with flows under 2.5 GPM except in corners.
For an in-depth description of features found on this and other rotors, see the faq on "How to Select the Best Rotor-Type Sprinkler".
