5000 PRS / 5000 Plus PRS Rotors with
Flow Optimizer™ Technology

Turn high pressure into lower water bills

When the pressure’s on, save water and money with Rain Bird 5000 PRS Rotors. High water pressure is a common problem in communities across the nation. But this big problem has a simple solution.

By regulating high or fluctuating pressure at the head, Pressure Regulating Stems (PRS) with Flow Optimizer™ technology can help save approximately one gallon per minute per rotor or spray. Given the high price of water in many areas, customers can also enjoy considerable cost savings—annually and over the life of the system.

A typical residential site using Rain Bird® PRS 5000 Rotors and 1800® Series Sprays can save 106,000 gallons per year.* That’s enough to fill an average swimming pool five times over. Check out the 5000 PRS Savings Calculator to estimate how much water and money you’ll save.

  • Eliminates head-to-head pressure variations
  • Improves distribution uniformity by operating the nozzle at optimum pressure
  • Ensures long-term performance by minimizing component wear and tear
