Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by iheart2code Lasts for a few years, then needs to be completely replaced
I equipped my entire, three-zone backyard system with Rain Bird Sure Pop 600 sprinklers. They worked quite well for about 3 years, and then the riser seals started to go bad. The seals started to calcify and became warped, causing sprinklers to leak and/or not pop up at all. I tried cleaning the seals and soaking in CLR, but this did not solve the issue.
Ordinarily, this would not be a problem. Buy replacement seals, install, and you're as good as new. HOWEVER, Rain Bird does not individually sell the riser seals, leaving you to purchase an entirely new sprinkler ($3-9) JUST to get a seal from the new unit. This would be a 4-5 star review if Rain Bird would individually seal riser seals.

After looking up the instructions on the rain-bird site, I can confidently assure any potential buyer that these sprinklers are a complete waste of money! They do not pop up and they are not adjustable as to the spray pattern.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by gppinky Very uneffecient use of water.
I have tried a few different Rain Bird heads, and all of them sprayed a fine mist high up in the air to get an uniform spray that remind me more of a mister than a sprinkler. The problem is that half the water evaporate or get blown away in when there is a light wind.
I got rid of them ASAP and gone back to Hunter heads where it is a spray and not a mist.

Whats best about this is that it saves you having to stock half and quarter pattern sprinklers. It does it all and the easiest yet to adjust.
