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.

Customer Questions & Answers

Power source?

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

Can you add additional sprinkler heads to this system if the 6 that come with are not enough?

Asked by: Brandon
If your yard is too big, you probably want to go with a multi-zone system. Only one zone can run at a time so that should take care of your water flow rate problem.
Answered by: DIYer

Is this a one zone unit?

From the diagram of the system, it appears that all six heads will pop up once you set the system to go on. I am not sure if my water pressure will make all six pop at the same time. My front lawn is about 5K sqr feet and my back is about 4K. Can I purchase multiple kits to water the entire lawn?
Asked by: Harry
Yes you can buy multiple kits but you must have the minimum water pressure.I had a plumber install a 3/4/ inch line to increase the pressure.

How does the auto drain valve work?

Do you need to create additional space at the end of the run to accomodate the drained water? Are the lines automatically drained after each watering cycle?
Asked by: Tsjl98
When the water pressure drops, the valves open, letting any water in the pipes drain as long as they are at the lowest point. No need to blow out lines of you installed them right. No gravel either. The drain valve at the end has a screen that keeps dirt out. Mine work flawlessly.

Easy to Install In-Ground Automatic Sprinkler System is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 88.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat the price. Good quality equipment Like every other home owner sick off moving sprinkler around. After researching on sprinkler system, I came across this automatic sprinkler system, and boy I'm happy that I purchase and spent time installing it. The package said one afternoon!! yea sure if you have 5 people helping you lol. I'm very impress on the quality of the system. From tubing, fittings, sprinklers head and timer there all good quality. The digging was the must painful time. other then that 6 sprinkler reach all my side yard. Decide to do the other side off the house by using same product but with different fittings and timer and thats how I know that rain bird made this to last for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Installation sprinkler system is exactly that The automatic sprinkler system was easy to install, I just had to remember to bury it deep enough so the lawn mower didn't chop off the heads. It surpassed my needs so I purchased a second one for my son's house and he installed his in just a few hours. It is important to watch the installation video online to help you plan the system placement best for you. My grass, I found during the installation, required aeration, and when that was completed, the water soaked in better and the lawn turned greener in a very short period of time. This was a great investment and I would recommend it to others who have a desire, motivation and a flat end shove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rainbird, 6 Head sprinkler Kit Great Kit, has everything you need except possibly some additional tubing which is inexpensive. The instructions are great and the product is also great. I used a weed eater with a edger attachment that I use for trimming along the sidewall to dig the narrow trench. This made the tubing install very easy. This is an easy one day install. I am very impressed. The time is great too and very easy to program. I will buy again for a lower yard. Highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good buy/product except automated timer I purchases this package last year in the fall and installed it pretty easily. I used it all summer and it really helped my grass quite a bit fight the effects of my dogs. The sprinklers I thought would not hold up but they work quite well for a year now. However, the "water now" feature (manual watering) on the automatic timer stopped working about six months after I purchased the system. I brought the unit in over the winter as suggested by Rainbird, but one day this summer it just stopped working. All in all I am happy with the purchase but would probably buy the components without the timer since it doesnt appear to hold up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sprinkler system for diyers This system was simple to install and works like advertised. The instructions are easy to read and the steps for installation make sense. The option for changing out the water flow heads makes for overall lawn coverage. This system comes with six heads which covers most average residential front lawns. The timer is not bulky and has lots a varying operations to fit your needs. The tubing seems well constructed and I am hoping it endures a cold winter. However, the package comes with ample tubing so if a problem arises there is enough replacement tubing for future use. I would recommend this product for diyers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product great but timer only worked a few minutes I could not afford a professional system so I found this system on Home Depot web site. The installation was not as simple as I was led to believe. It took me a week to design and install the system. The digging was the hardest step. After installing the system the timer quit working. Now it only shows the word SET or a 3 symbol word that looks like not. I've tried pressing every button and every setting and it refuses to do anything. A sprinkler system that will not let water through it is not really a sprinkler system..... Hope I can get it replaced, as I have put in 35 to 40 hours in installing the system. Home Depot has always been good at replacing bad products with a good one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Product READ THIS FOR ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW I began my 5000 soft backyard project with the concern that I would end up quitting half way through and wishing I had hired someone to install irrigation. Our quote for sprinklers from another company was just around $2000. After researching irrigation systems I came across the RainBird Easy to Install System. I calculated the amount of zones I would require based on my water pressure (which I measured at 63-65psi) and my flow rate (which I measured at 6.5 gallons per minute) and determined that I would need 4 kits. So I bought a manifold with four spigots and off i went. I have heard that it takes people an afternoon to install one kit. I did all four kits in right around 6 hours. Maybe it was my pre-planned layout?? I am not sure. But I am certain that It was incredibly easy to set up this kit. After all was said and done I had a combination of 6 sprinklers in a line, 2 sprinklers in a line and four split off from there, and the factory recommended 3 sprinklers per split side. What I am here to tell you, is that MY experience with this product is such that, I planned for the sprinklers to be 15 ft apart and be able to reach each sprinkler head. Well MY predictions worked out perfectly. Every sprinkler head shoots at or around 16 ft with my pressure and flow rate. My yard has 24 sprinkler heads and four automatically controlled zones now. With the over seeding we did and the ETI Rain Bird watering system we had sprouts growing in as little as 5 days. This product is phenomenal!!! Just make sure you have the pressure and flow rate. I really think that is all you need. Then, you have the freedom to hook up sprinklers in any form necessary... THAT IS JUST MY OPINION and NOT the FACTORY RECOMMENDATION!!! I won't be held liable for your mistakes/choices!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
