Rain Bird’s 5000 PRS rotor has received Australia’s Smart Approved Watermark certification. To date, this rotor is the only one in the industry to receive this certification. An independent third-party testing facility found that Rain Bird’s pressure-regulated rotor reduced water use by 15 percent to 45 percent compared with non-pressure-regulated rotors currently on the market.
The 5000 PRS combines Rain Bird’s Rain Curtain nozzle technology with an in-stem pressure regulator to prevent misting and fogging and keep water on the turf. Four Australian agencies developed the Smart Approved Watermark certification program as a result of the country’s water shortage and strict water rationing measures.
