Relax with the knowledge your landscape is being watered by reliable 5000 Series Rotors and industry-leading Rain Curtain Nozzle Technology. Rain Bird® 5000 Series Rotors are ideal for medium to large-size lawns and evenly distribute water from 25 to 50 feet.

Outstanding Results

5000 Series Rotors with Rain Curtain Technology are engineered to deliver a uniform spray pattern, giving you superior distribution uniformity and a consistently greener lawn with less water. Get even greater savings with optional in-stem pressure regulation (PRS).

Superior Wind Resistance

The larger water droplets produced by Rain Curtain technology prevent misting and airborne evaporation so the right amount of water is delivered to the right place, saving you water and money.

Superior Close-in Watering

Gentle close-in watering eliminates dry spots around the rotor, prevents seed washout and allows the turf to grow healthy with no matting or bending.

Rain Curtain Nozzle Technology

  • Rain Curtain Nozzles standard on all 5000 Series Rotors
    • Large water droplets for greater wind resistance
    • Effective close-in watering
    • Even distribution over the entire radius
  • Tree of nozzles including four low angle (angle of trajectory 10°) and eight standard angle Rain Curtain Nozzles (angle of trajectory 25°) provides 25' to 50' (7.6m to 15.2m) distance of throw
  • Self-aligning nozzles

Installation and Maintenance

  • Slip clutch mechanism for quick adjustment on installation
  • Faster maintenance with a new self-cleaning arc adjustment screw
  • The 5000 Plus features a flow shut-off device to stop the flow of water to a particular head while the system is still in operation
  • Top-adjust arc adjustment requiring only a flathead screwdriver
  • Radius adjustment screw allows up to 25% radius reduction without changing nozzles

Design Solutions

  • 5000 in 4", 6" and 12" available in shrub or in stainless steel
  • 5000 Series 4" and 6" models available in stainless steel
  • Award-winning MPR nozzle set simplifies design and installation by providing matched precipitation from 25' to 25' (7.6 to 10.7m)
  • Standard rubber cover for extra protection. 5000 Plus Series features a green cover while the 5000 Series features a black cover
  • 40-360° arc rotation and reversing full-circle rotation in one. (A non-reversing full-circle only unit is also available)
  • True 4" (10 cm), 6" (15.2 cm) and 12" (30.5 cm) pop-up (measured from the cover to the nozzle

Durability

  • Heavy-duty cover assembly for extra durability in residential or commercial applications
  • Heavy-duty retract spring assures positive pop-down
  • Pressure-activated multi-function wiper seal protects internals from debris and assures positive pop-up and retraction
  • Additional O-rings and seals for extra protection in "gritty" water
  • Five-year trade warranty.

Options

  • Stainless steel riser helps deter vandalism on public turf areas (4" and 6" models only)
  • Pre-installed Rain Curtain Nozzle on most popular 5000 and nozzle combinations
  • Seal-A-Matic (SAM) check valve holds up to 7 feet (2.1m) of elevation change to prevent puddling and erosion caused by low head drainage
  • Purple cover for easy identification of non-potable systems

Optional PRS Feature

  • In-stem pressure regulator (PRS) reduces operating pressure to 45 psi (3,1 bar) for optimal nozzle performance
  • PRS saves water by:
    • Eliminating head-to-head pressure variations
    • Eliminating misting due to high pressure
    • Improving nozzle distribution uniformity by operating the nozzle at optimum pressure
  • Maintenance-free design can be easily retrofitted into existing 5000/5000 Plus, T-Bird™ and Hunter® PGP™ (using UPG model) rotor cases without digging up the entire body
