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 turf areas 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 consistently greener turf 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.

The reliability and performance of the 5000 Series is available with these great optional features. Click below to learn more.
