SprinklerRepair is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Rotarty spray nozzles

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I no longer do installations, but I use rotary nozzles (mp rotators) on repair jobs.
Often you will see systems where some knucklehead installed spray and rotor heads on the same zone. To even out the distribution, I install rotary nozzles on the spray heads. If you look at a precipitation chart, you will see that you can closely match the existing rotors. Beats the heck out of splitting zones.

Hey Steve,


I like that they look interesting. Have you guys ever been on this site http://www.irrigationtutorials.com/sprinkler00.htm it gives alot of ideas for install. Pretty much if your an idiot it goes step by step and will show you how to install and what to install.

Do you promote these services with flyers or are they normally just upsells to current customers?
