Rain Bird 1806AP

The 1806Ap model stands superior in terms of adjustable. Because you can set it to any slice between 0 and 360 degrees. If the shape of your garden is strange, we can say 1806AP is just for you.

Rain Bird P5R

The P5R model comes with two adjustment options. The first is a full circle of 360 degrees, and the second is a partial circle of 20-340 degrees. If your garden is small, you can avoid wasted water by setting the violence of the fountain after placing it in the middle.

Spray Distance

The spraying distance of your Sprinkler is as important as its ability to adjust. How far it distributes water and how far it can reach it will be of interest when you buy it. Sprinklers usually have a spraying distance of 10-50 feet. Of course, there are Sprinklers that spray far further than these distances, but they’re not for houses, but for large fields focused on industrial agricultural products.
