    Q:Can I use Voyager II on 1/2" blu-lok tube and connections? Water pressure fluctuate between 80 psi-100 psi (early mornings its high around 100 psi).
    by|Sep 6, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  The Voyager II will work with Blu-Lock tubing and connectors, however we recommend trying to lower your water pressure to avoid issues with your system. Our Blu-Lock connectors have a maximum PSI of 80 so we would recommend installing a pressure regulator to ensure there is no extra stress being put on the joints of your watering system.

      Q:I need to purchase nozzles for the Saturn III Gen 2. I heard that the Saturn IV nozzles fit that model. Where can I purchase the nozzles?
      by|Jun 19, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  I called Orbit. They currently don't sell those nozzles separately. I have the same problem as you. I'm going to just buy a couple of the Saturn "IV" units which come with about 10 different nozzels, and use some of those in my Saturn "III" units.

          Annoying
          Once I got it working it was fine. But until then and even after it was a glorified pain. I ended up having it longer than the return date thanks to the winter weather and not being able to get to it, so I just trashed it and went on. This is definitely not a product I will use again.

            Qualité diminuée
            Lucky I had my old caps which I had to use because the threads on the new caps broke causing a leak. Otherwise I wouldn't have been able to use the new jets.

            Won't throw more than 30 feet
            The flow and throw table is junk. I had 40 psi pressure. According to it a no 8 nozzle will throw 44 feet. It only got to 30 feet. No matter what nozzle you use it won't go past 30 feet. I am taking all back to return

              They are fair for the price but you might want to get a hunter instead. They have better components and tend to last longer.

              You only got it half right. You are beginning to get like Lowe's, which is not a good thing.

              I have a lot of these sprinklers they work pretty well but seem to stop rotating after a few years.
