Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

If you are tired of hassling with hose and sprinklers, and getting poor results from manual watering, this new automatic system is a perfect solution. The first professional grade Rain Bird sprinkler system designed for homeowner installation, it provides everything you need to keep your lawn green season after season while saving water. The system attaches to any outside faucet and includes six high-efficiency rotary sprinklers with patented Rain Curtain nozzle technology. The same sprinklers used in professionally installed systems worldwide, these rugged sprinklers deliver a rotating curtain of water with large droplets that fall quickly to avoid windblown overspray and to cover evenly from head to perimeter for reduced overall watering time. Simple adjustments for spray rotation and distance help you keep the water on your lawn and off the house, sidewalk and driveway. Controlling the sprinklers is Rain Bird's heavy duty timer with large readout screen and simple scroll settings for automatic watering any days of the week and up to two times per day. Flexible scheduling allows customizing your settings for specific needs such as watering of slopes where two short cycles will allow the water to soak in better, avoiding runoff waste. The timer also features manual buttons for "Water Now" and "Cancel" watering without affecting the program. An illustrated manual shows the 5-step installation process as well as example sprinkler placements for different lawn areas.

  • Sprinklers retract into the lawn for a clean, uncluttered appearance and easier mowing
  • Complete kit includes timer, 6 high efficiency rotary sprinklers plus tubing and connectors
  • Self draining to avoid freeze damage in colder months
  • Covers medium size lawn areas from 1000 - 3000 sq. ft., with average residential water pressure and flow
  • Recommended minimum water flow: 6 GPM
  • Rectangular watering area with proper head-to-head coverage: 512 sq. ft. at 6 GPM, 800 sq. ft. at 8 GPM, 1152 sq. ft. at 10 GPM
  • Maximum watering area with all heads set to full circle pattern: 3050 sq. ft. at 6 GPM, 4845 sq. ft. at 8 GPM, 6936 sq. ft. at 10 GPM
  • Sprinkler pattern (adjustable): 40 to 360°

Im a newbie so excuse me, but i see no mention of a power source...I assume the timer has to be plugged in? And do the sprinklers "pop up" because of the water? or is it electrical (as i dont see anything but the hose being installed)... TY

Answer: 
I would not. The flow of water and pressure dictate the maximum number and flow of heads. They are set up with .75GPH nozzles out of the box. 6 of them will then produce a flow of 4.5 GPH. Between the pressure reducer they have in the circuit, the restriction of the small .5" tube and the number of heads and a "T" or two, that's nearly at the limit of their system, IMHO. I put only 4 heads in my system Read More

I put only 4 heads in my system and bumped a couple from .75 to 1.0 or 1.5. The .75 nozzles don't shoot the water very far. They say 16' but that is a myth. Think 12-13'. The 1.0 and 1.5 nozzles shoot farther and 1.5 is probably necessary to get to their minimum 16' range. If you absolutely need more heads, try two zones, on a "T" off your hose bib, and set for different times. Read Less

Answer: 
You would need to determine the gallons per minute (water flow) of your system and PSI. Normally you shouldn't put more than 6 on any run, but this is just a guideline not a hard rule. If you have ~6 GPM that is the bare minimum for 6 heads on fairly short runs. Anything more than that and you will see a decreased performance in distance and function.

One item that is usually missed when measuring, especially on older homes, is when you are doing the test, have someone flush a toilet in the home. Then take the lowest reading and use that. Many times you measure the GPM and PSI only to find out you can do more than one run at a time because you see a huge GPM drop when in use.
I am not at all suggesting this isn't something a home owner can do as DIY, but once you start getting into multiple runs, systems, and heads with multiple, coordinated timers, the entire project can get very complicated very fast. Read Less

Answer: 
It is recommended not to. However, I believe it is based on water pressure of your home. So in the direction there should be minimum water pressure, so if you are adding 2 more (from 6 to 8) which is a 1/3 increase, then you will need to verify the pressure exceeds by 33% above min. Not having enough water pressure can affect the distance of the spray as well as Sprinkler head not popping up all the way Read More

Definitely! When the cold season approaches, just before the ground freezes, all you have to do is to shut off the water coming from the main entrance and empty the lines with a good compressor with continuous pressure (not with a holding tank). Some companies do did job for you ($110 to $125) if you don't have a compressor. I'm in a place where temperatures go under -35C and my system is still good for Read More

When spring time arrives, open the main water valve, and then one station at a time very easily, and you are ready for another good weather season.

Answer: 
Sprinkler systems are always shallow, above the frost line, regardless of location. You would want to blow out the lines in the fall. If you search for "how blow out sprinkler system" there are videos available. You can do it yourself with an inexpensive compressor or hire someone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 66 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Name Says it All! This kit has been a huge time and energy saver this Spring. My lawn never got watered as much as it should've before because of the hassle of dragging the hose and sprinkler out and, more often, just forgetting. This kit includes everything needed to automate watering the lawn. With a little planning i was able to cover my entire front yard and landscaping with a single kit. Installation was very straightforward and just took a little planning, measuring, and digging to get everything working perfectly. I'm very happy with this kit and would recommend to it to anybody wanting the greenest lawn on the block with minimal effort April 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rain bird GREAT Easy to install, just follow directions. 125 foot of hose, my house needed 10 more feet. Get the rain bird hose its a special fitting hose for the barb ends. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product Sprinkler is super easy to install and quality is also good. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Two timers failed DOA out of the box. Installed the entire kit, with only 4 sprinkler heads. The timer did turn on, but water flow was weak. Wondered what was happening, so I took the timer out of the circuit and water flow was great. I have really good pressure and volume of water flow. Then the timer just died entirely. Rainbird was nice and after an hour on the phone with them, they sent me another timer. Took about 10 days to get. Then I tried it and it wouldn't turn on at all. I swapped another brand timer and it worked fine. So its not me, fans. The electronics seem good--this is one of the only ones I've seen that has day of the week timing. Most are "every 2 days" or "every 3 days". This one can be set to Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, which is what our County allows for watering. Burt if it is DOA, so what?!? The rest of the kit was easy to install and worked well. July 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIY It takes more time and prep work then expected but entirely worth the money! July 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install I bought this to water my back lawn. I've been trying to grow a lawn for 2 years to no avail. After installing this sprinkler system I have the lawn I've been dreaming of. It was easy to install the system after I'd dug the trench where I needed the sprinkler heads. I have terrible clay soil and I couldn't just use a shovel to make a slit in the yard like the instructions say to do. I'm glad I got this kit because I didn't need to try and figure out what kinds of elements to buy individually. Even with the extra work, I'm happy I purchased this system. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install Very complete starter kit for someone who whants to learn how to install a spinkler system July 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easier to install than expected !!! The sprinklers cover about 16-20 ft as advertised. I bought two kits and installed a row on each side of my house. Easy to set up. Just put stakes in the ground where you want the sprayers to be, then wire tire them to the stakes and run the tubing to each stake. You can apply water to them above the ground to make sure they cover the desired area before burying the lines. Buy some extra teflon tape and a Y-connector for the water supply so you can still use a water hose without disassembly. May 31, 2016
