The inlet for this sprinkler head is 1/2 inch. So the fitting size would need to be a 1/2 inch MPT. Thanks!

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value; easy adjustments Swapped out old sprinklers (poor coverage) at this house I recently bought. Did 9 in about an hour and a half. Very easy to adjust - pay attention to the directions. Set your right stop point, then adjust the arc (you need to feel the adjustment tool as it sits into the adjustment screw). Rotate the head left to verify your arc setting, then tweak as necessary. The variety of nozzles lets you choose the correct flow rate for your setup - .5 for a quarter circle, 1.0 for a half-circle, etc. Coverage looks to be very even. June 27, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by two out of three worked... Two of them worked OK, and I was able to adjust the spray pattern to 90 degrees. The third one just sprayed 360 degrees, clockwise, never reversing. To adjust the spray pattern, you are supposed to rotate the green top all the way to the left, then all the way to the right. But when I do that, it just keeps rotating right - there is no "all the way." I just spins, just like the spray pattern August 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great I have been using mine for 3 years now and have not had any issues easy to install. March 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great nozzle selection If you are looking for coverage in the 18 to 25 foot range this is an excellent choice. With the nozzle selection provided, uniform water application rates can be achieved no matter what the sprinkler arc saving water. Rates can even be made to match spray heads so it can be used in a mixed head application. July 17, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't be cheap, you will be sorry Do not buy this cheap product. They will not adjust easily. I have had more problems with them breaking while trying to adjust the spray pattern. Spend a little extra and buy the competitor brand. You will not regret it. June 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A filter. What a novel idea! So easy to put a filter on. Not sure why more of these don't have them. June 21, 2013
