*Caution: Part numbers for these products don't appear to follow in a logical pattern that clearly identifies related products. Don't rely on the part numbers alone!!! Carefully check the descriptions, product labels, and look over the product itself to assure you are getting the correct item.

(NS) means nozzle sold separately.

Minimum standards:

It is my opinion that any spray sprinkler worth spending money on should have the following features:

Without the above features a sprinkler is not a bargain at any price, maintenance and repairs will cost you more than it would have to just buy a good-quality sprinkler.

Note:

I have not reviewed sprinklers and nozzles separately. It is assumed the sprinkler body will be used with the standard nozzle recommended by the manufacturer. In other words, if you use an ABC brand model ZZZ series body, I assume you will use it with a nozzle supplied by ABC brand for use with their ZZZ series body. The reason I point this out is that the nozzles for many spray-type sprinklers are interchangeable with those made by other manufacturers. They tend to have either "Toro style" nozzles with male threads on the nozzle, or "Rainbird style" nozzles with female threads on the nozzle. In general, I don't recommend mixing different brands of nozzles and bodies.

Feature key:

The following abbreviations are used in the reference chart below for various features of the spray sprinkler models:
