Outstanding Results

Superior Distribution Uniformity. 5000 Series Rotors with Rain Curtain Technology are engineered to deliver a uniform spray pattern, giving you a consistently green lawn throughout.

Superior Wind Resistance

The larger water droplets produced by Rain Curtain technology prevent misting and airborne evaporation so the right amount of water is delivered to the right place, saving you water and money.

Superior Close-in Watering

Gentle close-in watering eliminates dry spots around the rotor, prevents seed washout and allows the turf to grow healthy with no matting or bending.

Includes:

  • 1 complete set of standard nozzles per rotor
  • 1 Set of Instructions (1 per shipment)

Best rainbird product out
For solving lo-drainage issues these check valves work great. The spring mechanism can fit inside of the 42sa body as well. Be sure to flush the line by leaving the nozzle off and running the zone in order to free the line from any dirt.

No More Green Spots
These are great for the lower areas of your yard because they prevent the draining of the entire charged system into the low areas causing over-watering.

Performs very well
I really like the check valve feature, the one at the bottom of the hill does not get drowned after the system shuts off. They perform well with a large variation in water pressure.

For the low spots to prevent excessive watering.

I have used these for years. They get destroyed by lawn mower and mineral build up. Usually the later. I havent found any advantages of the more expensive SAM variety.

What is difference in 5004-PC-SAM and 5004-PLPC-SAM ?
Lynn B on Apr 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 5004-PC-SAM means it's the 5000 series rotor, 4" Pop Up, Part Circle (Adjustable), Seal-A-Matic (less water runs out after it retracts back into the ground because there is a seal that wraps around the pop up portion of the sprinkler head. 5004-PLPC-SAM means that it's the 5000 series rotor, 4" Pop Up, Parc Circle (Adjustable), PL means plus which allows this rotor the flexibility to be shut off during operation at the rotor instead of at the valve or controller (in other words, you use the provided screw driver to turn the flow through the rotor on and off while it's running).
Does purchase of the rainbird 5000 include nozzles or is that extra?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it comes with a full set. Sprinkler warehouse even gave me a rain bird rotor screwdriver tool for free on my first set I purchased from them.
Rainbird 5004+pcsam. Installed one at bottom of hill thinking the check valve would prevent the head leaking after the zone shuts off. The head still ran water out of it after the zone was shut off. Is this normal?
Paul M on May 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I'm sorry that the check valve did not fix your issue as expected. Please keep in mind that Rain Birds SAM check valve can only withstand up to a 7 foot elevation change. If your elevation change is exceeding 7 feet that may be why the check valve is failing and the leak is persistent. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
