Rain Bird 5004-PLPCS-R 4 in. Partial-Circle Adj. Rotor with PRS SAM

Relax with the knowledge your landscape is being watered by reliable 5000 Series Rotors and industry-leading Rain Curtain Nozzle Technology.

Rain Bird 5000 Series Rotors are ideal for medium to large-size lawns and evenly distribute water from 25 to 50 feet. The 5000 Series Rotors with Rain Curtain Technology are engineered to deliver a uniform spray pattern, giving you a consistently green lawn throughout. 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. 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.

    Rain Bird 5004-PLPCS-R
    I installed 8 Rain Bird 5004-PLPCS-R and they perform great.No leaking seals, check valves work great and the regulator's keep the spray pattern constant.My system is running off my well with tank pressure running 65-40 psig.

    Working well after obtaining the MPR nozzles from a landscape distribution company. Wanted to keep the overall distance around 25'. The shut off feature of the +(plus) is worth it, can change nozzles just by activating the zone then walk over and change out.
    I would but them again, sprinkler warehouse prices can't be beat...

    I really like only needing one tool to adjust sprinkler head. I switched from the Hunter PGP Ultra and MP rotators to the Rainbird Rvan and 5004. Iâ??m a home owner but pretty satisfied with the quality and ease of adjustment on these heads.

    I needed the check valve part of the sprinkler head to prevent puddling after the system is turned off. Existing same model heads work well except for the low heads that puddle. It is a nice feature.

    Water saving. High cost of watering lawn.

    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.

    Hello! What exactly is the difference between Partial-Circle Adj. Rotor and Full Circle Rotor?
    Tocut V on Nov 25, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: Hi! The Full Circle Rotors are not adjustable and cover 360 degrees. The Partial Circle can cover as little as 40 degrees and as much as 360 degrees. Everything else is the same. In my opinion go with the adjustable rotor. Also, the PRS and SAM features have been a life saver. No more sprinkler head water drainage and no more noisy airy start ups.
    Hello, I currently have several of the 3500 series installed and would like to step up to the 5000 series. I have a fair amount of elevation so the 3500 series struggle at times to reach from sprinkler head to sprinkler head. Will this 5004 series provide me with a true 35 feet of spray? Will they require more water/pressure?
    Jim Q on Apr 23, 2013
    BEST ANSWER: Jim, The minimum design pressure to support this sprinkler is 25 psi. The pressure regulating feature can handle up to 65 psi. Within this pressure range you can adjust the radius from 25 feet to 50 feet by choosing different angle nozzles and with an adjustment screw that can reduce the radius 25% for any nozzle choice

    My opiinion is that you should have 30 -35 psi pressure to produce the results you want. If you have less than 25 psi pressure, you likely need to adjust (reduce) the head spacing. You can buy a simple pressure gauge that screws on a yard hydrant to measure your municiple water system pressure.

    The 3500 series accepts a variety of nozzles. You might first try installing different nozzles in several of your existing system heads to get a greater radius coverage.
    Can I replace a 5000 non pressure regulated unit with a pressure regulated unit, or must the entire zone have pressure regulated units to realize the benefits of pressure regulation?
    Mark F. on May 26, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: You doesn't need to have same rotor model to get the benefits of PRS system. But the answer is yes and no to your question. Yes, because you can and your system will continue to work correctly (as it works today). No because if you are concerned about the amount of water you spread on your lawn, you cannot mix both head (because you are not spreading the same amount of water on each model). Look at the manual of the head and look for specs about water consumption for each model. (Probably it's little difference, but it's up to you). It's just a question of pressure regulated in the rotor itself. But I'm curious to know why you want to change your model ? Is it a question of water saving ? A question of regulating the distance of the water ? A question of getting the best performance of your head (eliminate the spray caused by to many pressure in your system) ? If you answer no to all of these questions, you don't really need PRS system. If you want to prevent rotor to purge water caused by slope in your lawn, SAM is a good option. In other case, this option doesn't really have purpose. Just be sure you have between 45 and 75 PSI in your water main line to get the best performance of the PRS model. To many pressure will be a problem with the head (even if this model have a pressure regulator inside, look at the specs sheet in your manual). Thanks
    I want to shut off just one head is this the head I need?
    A shopper on Sep 30, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have six zones with each zone having from 4 to 5 heads. In zones 2 and 4 I shut off one of the heads due to underground spring run off. When the run off dries up, I can turn the heads back on easily. Been using Rain Bird 5000 plus for years and greatly prefer over Hunter and Toro heads. Very easy to set arc, turn off/on, change nozzle etc. Just be sure to get the desired rotation - full circle or half circle. And sprinkler warehouse great to work with.
    is your "Rain Bird 5004-PLPCS-R 4 in. Partial-Circle Adj. Rotor with PRS SAM" the same as what Rainbird calls their "5004+PCSR - 4 in. 5000 Series Part-Circle Pattern Pop-up Rotor with PRS Pressure Regulation and SAM Check Valve"?
    S Y on Oct 28, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I have looked through the brochure information trying to find the difference that is not obvious from the criptic part number difference. Both parts provide flow control shutoff, pressure regulation (PRS) and the Seal-A-Matic (SAM) relief valve, all good features. The only difference I see for the PLPCS-R is that it lists the non-potable (gray water) water source purple top where the PCSR would have the green top indicating a normal water source. Refer to bullet item #2 in the part description.

    BEST ANSWER: Replacement nozzles-I've been replacing all my hunter heads with Rainbird 5000 series nozzles. Every time I purchase from Sprinkler Wherehouse they send every nozzle,for each head, I believe they have ,to cover any application ! Chet Luginbuhl

    I have some Rainbird 5000 units that were installed when the hosue was built and now a few of them have stopped rotating. Can I replace those with this one without digging up the whole assembly?
    A shopper on Jun 2, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: The 5004 body drops right into the sleeve (outer casing) of the 5000. You'll get all the features of this newer model, as the features don't depend on the outer plastic sleeve. I've done this at least 20 times.
    I am looking to replace a Rain bird TDR-2 / R-50 I can not seem to find what to replace it with or any of them?

    Thanks Stacy
    A shopper on May 27, 2013
    BEST ANSWER: I think the shopper should take a look at the 5000 series popup heads. There should be one that will duplicate the coverage of the TDR-2/R50. I do not know what the coverage rate was for that obsolete rotor, but the 500 series popups come with a set of jets from 1 to 8 gpm so there should be one that matches the coverage rate of the TDR-2/R-50, if the customer know what that was.
    Can these be set down to 18'?
    L E on Nov 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The radius range for the 5000 series is 25-50 feet. The 3500 series goes from 15-35 feet. While you could throttle down the shortest throwing model, I don’t believe you will get consistent coverage under 25 feet
    What is the difference between thew plpcs-r and plpcs-np?
    Roger L on Jun 13, 2012
    BEST ANSWER: The NP stands for non potable so it has the purple head. The R is because it is pressure regulated. I use the Rs due to them giving you the same pressure at each head. This helps if you have a system that wasn't installed correctly by using the correct pipe size. Older systems that have been fixed over the years and rigged with couplings or parts to get by would benefit from the R heads. If you water with reclaim, many places require the purple head. I hope this helps.
    just noticed that another store sells the 5004 Plus PC with PRS and SAM for a lot higher price than SW. It appears to be the exact same product. Is there a difference? Is this a refurbished rotor instead of brand new?
    Robert H on Jun 12, 2015
    When I measure my existing 5000 which I need to replace, it measures about 5 inches from the top of the spray head to the top of the base when it is running. Would the 5006 6 inch be the proper replacement?
