Is the sprinkler top hard plastic or rubber? Also what is the model #? I'm trying to find Model 55179. Thanks!
Asked by: Frankie
Frankie, this is the 55179, so you're at the right place. This sprinkler has a top that, for lack of a better way to put it, is made of hard rubber. It's not 100% rigid like plastic, but there's practically no give.

Why orbit offer the rubber gasket seal replacements. That would be easer and cheaper than replacements. 90% of the failures is the rubber center seal only.

Saturn IV Professional Gear Drive is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A filter. What a novel idea! So easy to put a filter on. Not sure why more of these don't have them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Feel like i wasted a lot of money I installed 20 of these last year. So far 5 of them are broken. They stopped rotating. Tried to look up repair on them but everyone just says replace them. I had some Saturn III from my old system that I was able to replace them with but im not buying any more of these. Ill be buying the rain birds when the rest of them go out. Its sad that i have had to replace so many already after a year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
