Orbit 100 Series Spring-Loaded Pop-Up Sprinkler Head with Brass Nozzle
This sprinkler has a good quality wiper seal. It has a good ratchet mechanism, although I would prefer that it be just a bit harder to turn in order to prevent slipping out of alignment. It comes with a solid brass nozzle. I would suggest considering Orbit's 5400 series 4" pop-up spray head rather than this one.
I would only use low pop-up heights (less than 3 inches) for bubblers or shrub areas with widely-spaced shrubs and no ground cover. For lawns I suggest one of Orbit's spray heads with a higher pop-up height.

- Minimum pressure: 15 PSI
- Maximum pressure: 50 PSI
Orbit does not provide a pressure range for this sprinkler, the range above is my best guess based on the construction of the sprinkler.

Note: I haven't been able to find data for all of the water pressures shown in the table above. Some of the data in the above table is my "best guess" as to the approximate flow. The nozzle radius likely is greater than 12 feet at pressures over 25 PSI but I don't have any data on the actual radius at the higher pressures. You should assume a maximum of 12 feet when designing with this sprinkler.
