Best Price Best Rotor Sprinkler
Best price for this sprinkler anywhere. I have ordered and used different rotor sprinklers and find the Nelson Rainbirds by far the best. The water flow thru these heads are much more accurate and don't allow for dry spots close to the sprinkler itself.

Adjustable Arc is COOL!
Really a nice pop up! It is adjustable from less than a 1/4 to larger than 3/4. Easily adjusted with water on, just turn the top. I like the quality. Highly recommend Rain Bird products

The 3504 was extremely easy to replace after following a you tube video. Would certainly pitched from here again.
Fortunately the company that installed the irrigation system left pictures of exactly what I needed. This 3504 was perfect.

Good Rotor for Smaller Areas
This rotor works great in those smaller areas where the larger rotor shoots too far, and a pop up spray head just won't do.
September 7, 2015
I would recommend these sprinkler heads to anyone needing an adjustable head for a specific area.
I needed some sprinklers to match some specific angles and spray a specific distance. These heads were perfect for my needs.

gpm from this sprinkler head ?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2012
BEST ANSWER: depends on how u nozzle it from 1.0 to 6.0 gallon nozzle.
it comes with a 1/2" female tread?
jose c on Oct 26, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Get the Rain Bird 3504 6", I keep my grass height at 5" during the speak of the summer. YEs, it's 1/2 femal tread, make sure to get the elbow tread ( L shape tread), this will reduce the trench depth for the pipe.
Does this sprinkler come with the 6 nozzle tree?
Steve L on Jun 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Sprinkler Warehouse sells them that way. You should be good to go!
I sometimes have low pressure in my well system. which sprinkler heads work better with lower pressure?
ron g on May 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 3500 will work well with low pressure, paired with your GPM flow. One thing you can do with these heads is adjust the nozzle size. They come with a tree that begins with .75 gpm nozzle, which is pretty low. You can start with, say, a 3.0 GPM nozzle in a full circle head and then use the .75 on the corners. That will match your precipitation rates on all heads. If the flow or pressure is too low, you can nozzle the center down to 2.5, then 2.0, and so forth until they pop up correctly. You may also need to cut the number of heads per zone. It all depends on whether your are puttting in a new system or fixing an old one.
id like to get a whole system, with 10 pieces of rotor rain bird 3504. Can I get the whole system ?
Ivonete S on Aug 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: U first need to install a brass back flow valve then check your gpm (gallons per min)and psi (your water presser) then after that u will need a irr book.
A shopper on Jul 19, 2012
BEST ANSWER: It depends on what size your riser is. This requires a 3/4" diameter riser. If you have a 1/2" diameter riser, you can just replace it with a 1/2" diameter to 3/4" diameter adapter riser (sold at home depot, lowes).
I have 85lbs of pressure It took 21 sec. to fill a 5 gallons bucket I want to use #3504 sprinkler heads How many sprinkler heads can I use on a zone ?
Joe A on Oct 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: So that equates to roughly 15 gallons per minute(gpm). You only want to use about 75% of your max flow or 10-11 gpm. Then figure out your nozzles on your heads. You need to know the radius the heads will cover. If you use a 3 gpm nozzle for full circles, then use 1.5 gmp nozzles for 1/2 circles and .75 gmp heads for 1/4 circles to match your precipitation rates. Map out your yard with those flow rates and don't exceed 11 gmp.
Why is 3500 series more expensive than the 5000 series?
A shopper on Jul 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I dont know. My take is that they havent been out for mor than 7 -8 years
is this rotor head capable of being retrofit into? and 1800 canister?
Rodd H on Jul 15, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I have no idea. I bought the entire rotor.
I am comparing the 3504 & 5004 (rainbird) rotor sprinklers. What makes the difference in spray distance. I noticed the inlet to the 3504 is 1/2 in. and the 5004 is 3/4 in. Is this the only thing that restricts the distance? Also why is the 3504 less expensive?

thanks, Gm
Gary M on Jun 11, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The entire body of the 3504 is smaller than the the 5004, therefore, so are all of the gear mechanisms that make the rotors work. Having all of the gear train in a smaller package will cause more water restriction that the larger bodied 5004 hence less distance. Also the 5004 will be capable of using larger nozzle sizes than the 3504 so it will be capable of more gallons per minute. Also larger nozzles mean greater distance. It is less expensive because it is smaller, and to be honest, not quite as robust. I have had mine installed for over a yearr and a half without any issues at all. Great product.
The website says this item is unavailable for order. Has it been upgraded? If so, what is an equivalent?

how to adjust 3500sprinkler head?
Alfred W on Oct 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: First thing to do is rotate the sprinkler head to its stopping positions. It will only go in one direction until it reaches the stop, where it will click and then rotate back in the other direction until it reaches that stop. DO NOT try to force it in the opposite direction until it reaches the stop. Once you understand that, the next step is to adjust the screw with the arrow beside it (it uses a flat head screw driver). Rotate the head one direction or the other all the way to the stop. Push the screw driver through the + until you reach the set screw. When you turn that screw you are adjusting the opposite stop. In other words, when you turn the head counter-clockwise, the screw adjusts the clockwise stop. The plus and minus next to the arrow are supposed to indicate increasing or decreasing the arc, but that only applies when you are at the counter-clockwise stop. When you are at the clockwise stop, it is opposite. The set screw will only turn so far until you reach a full 360 arc. DO NOT try to turn the set screw past that point.

The best way I have found to adjust the arc is as follows:
1. Rotate the head all the way to one stop or the other
2. Adjust set screw until the opposite stop is where I want it to be (requires trial and error, in other words going back and forth until I have it right)
3. Rotate the head all the way to the other stop (which is now where I want it to be)
4. Adjust the set screw until the other stop is where I want it be

Hope that helps!
