Manufacturer Information
Choosing the right model of a sprinkler head or nozzle can be tricky. Once you identify the type of head or nozzle you need, we recommend reviewing the brand and model’s “spec sheet,” aka “performance sheet,” typically found on the manufacturer’s website. These sheets will provide information on the different types of models’ arc and radius, precipitation rate, and more, including installation tips.

For example, here is the Rain Bird R-VAN rotary nozzle spec sheet.
