I have a Hunter strip sprinkler (4" popup) - SS530 nozzle. They spray
to the sides just fine but in the front, they spray down. It says 5
feet out, but this guy is only shooting 15" before it hits the ground.
Plenty of pressure, just aiming down. Can these be adjusted or do I
need a different nozzle?
It is easy for a sprinkler head to get out of plumb because of various
causes (you ran over it with the mower, or the earth wasn't packed around it
well). You probably need to dig it up and pack the dirt back around while
keeping the head vertical.
Problem solved. I took a file and filed down the middle part of the
nozzle (the part that directs the spray down). Working now, but what a
pain. According to the Hunter web site, this should be able to spray 5'
X 30'. The only way you'll get the 5' (in front of the head) is to put
in up about 3' above the ground.
