Answer: 
Joe, these particular nozzles yield a water flow rate that will vary depending on a couple of different factors: spray pattern arc (full-circle, half-circle, etc.) and water pressure. Please contact our Support team at 1-800-488-6156, so we can speak with you and give you the specific answers that would fit the conditions of your yard. Thanks!

I purchased several Orbit 4" pop-up sprinkler hard top adjustable pattern heads that adjust up to 15 ft. at Home Depot. How do I adjust the pattern? I don't want to get all wet doing it.

Answer: 
MountainLawnGuy, the adjustments come by simply twisting various parts of the head. First, locate the black "dot" on the top of the nozzle. Next, set the left edge of your spray pattern by twisting the entire stem (not just the nozzle), until the black dot is pointing to the left edge you seek. Once you've done that, rotate the nozzle (just the nozzle) until the black dot is pointing to the right edge of Read More

Rated 2.1 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Leaks, Darn near Worthless I bought this to replace a 10+ year old Rain Bird head that my in-laws accidentally backed over and cracked. I thought with the metal head it would be more durable. The truth is, I don't have any idea how durable it is since it only lasted about 5 minutes in the ground before I pulled it out. It leaks, plain and simple, around both the seal and the base of the spray head. So, if you're trying to water the 3" diameter around the base of your head, this will work perfectly. If you're trying to water the 8-15' "range" of this head, don't bother. I'll be returning this and purchasing another, cheaper, Rain Bird that doesn't leak. Period. July 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Leaks too much to use Put seven on a station. Leaks were so bad sprinklers would not pop up. Replaced with seven similar Rainbirds, which work fine. July 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Leak like crazy causing pressure loss like everyone else says, these leak like crazy around the pop-up head. If you have enough of these leakers on one zone, it will just kill your line pressure. Ironically I was setting these at 180 degrees to replace 360 degree heads May 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Virtually indestructible After replacing many, many sprinkler heads that had been destroyed by the lawnmower, I discovered these ones with a metal cap. They are virtually indestructible, and work just great. I like the hard top so much that I wish I could buy just this part and go around replacing the caps on all my other sprinkler heads. I've installed about twenty of these, and had no problems whatsoever. I suspect that the people who are complaining about leaking heads have tried to install too many sprinkler heads on one circuit. When this happens, there's not enough water pressure to lift up the pop-up shafts, and you end up with a puddle around the sprinkler head. October 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great Needed to replace a broken sprinkler head and didn't want to pay the markup with the local irrigation company. I was skeptical at first, but this easily replaced the broken Hunter sprinkler head. Turned on the system and all works good. May 7, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk don't buy Terrible leak around stem, & leak makes squealing noise. Un-usable & waste of time for me. Can't believe they market this product!!! March 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seems to work fine It's not even about other people and their experiences. It's not even about me. This is a well built head and probably way better quality than any other in it's class due to the hard top. I keep reading all these people saying they leak around the stem and all the low scores given but fact is I have never had rainbird do any better and the 1800 series are pretty much the crappiest sprayer I have ever used. They boast all the features in the 1800 but it always ends up leaking, cracking or just not spraying smoothly and these Orbit hard tops actually have a very smooth even stream on all adjustment angles. I was soaking wet after but I got my answer very clearly. I think alot of envious people who criticize the orbit models are either uneducated people or perhaps they are people that are out to smear the name of a good product because they tilt their nose up at a product like this since it has a retail model. Some people buy nothing but contractor grade heads and let me just say I am a union worker who does quite a bit of irrigation and so many manufacturers have decent sprinklers. When something as durable as this comes along it really sheds light on how some of the well known companies charge double for something that is not justified when comparing performance. Even when installed at ground level or slightly below, rainbirds get jammed up from repeatedly running my mower or quad over the lawn for whatever reason. But the hard tops on the orbit will not budge. Way to go orbit. Now I do have to admit the longevity of these orbits is not yet known but tell me a 5 year warranty isn't something that does not make this purchase worth it and I will say you are not qualified to even write a review. Because from hunters, toros, rainbirds, and orbits, among some others....... I've used them all. You cannot beat a head that has this type of construction. Not for the price with a 5 year warranty.. I will keep my eye on them. But I was more than happy with these. Versatility up to 360 degrees with a 12 foot radius works perfectly for my situation too. I have them mounted on risers that extend up the side of my 4x4 wooden fence posts and then I heated my PVC to curve the last 18" of pipe to get these to mount almost horizontally and the water is distributed beautifully in my landscaped pool area. I would do a video for this review later if they will allow an edit because I tell you what, I do not buy the things I read others post sometimes but if those people who complained so much about these could do a video showing the issues they are having I bet we who know what we are doing might see what they are doing wrong. I do not believe a sincere professional would be able to to say these were bad. Not if he or she was being honest. So I will try to get a video of these. I can probably make these leak if I wanted because I know some things that cause any heads to leak. You have to make sure you install them properly and threads must match. As for the stem, I know about this type of leakage too. When these are new, I would not expect them to leak but I can see how someone could ruin one causing it to leak so be careful when adjusting and I think you will be just fine. Don't bend the stem while the water is running. Be careful when adjusting. May 6, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst sprinklers ever bought. Thought I was doing good getting sprinklers made in the USA; but they were a waste of my money. I purchased roughly 20 4" pop ups and 15 2" pop ups. Most of them leak around the cylinder like others have mentioned; not a huge for me. But what's getting me is the nozzles are somehow breaking after time. Granted they're only 3 months old and I've had to replace 5 nozzles because the pattern starts to drastically change and then after a few days the nozzle head seems to break inside. Hard to explain, but after spending quite a bit of money on new sprinklers I'm very disappointed. June 11, 2013
