Orbit Economy Spring-Loaded Pop-Up Sprinkler Head

 

Orbit Pop-Up Economy Sprinkler

Description:

This sprinkler is for the “price is everything” buyer. It is intended for the buyer who looks at all the sprinkler prices and grabs the least expensive product available. This sprinkler has a bayonet-style cap made of very thin plastic. The cap has holes in it to further reduce the amount of plastic. The wiper seal is of minimal quality. The body is very thin plastic. If you are looking at product reviews, then you are undoubtedly looking for something better than this sprinkler. I would suggest considering Orbit's 5400 series 4" pop-up spray head rather than this one.

I consider any sprinkler with a pop-up height less than 3 inches unacceptable in most circumstances due to the increased maintenance necessary to trim grass away from the head. I would only use low pop-up heights for bubblers or shrub areas with widely-spaced shrubs and no ground cover.

Specifications:

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.
