Does anyone have experience changing their traditional spray nozzles to the more efficient rotary nozzles? I have found too much information and not enough experience. Some say you need to replace the whole body and others just the nozzle in the popup. While I'm sure my system would benefit from all new bodies, my skill level wants to just do nozzles. If I try to dig I'm going to great something. I know it! I'm just concerned about other factors I may not be considering for what may be an ill-advised shortcut.

Thanks!

I know that, but it was in a specialized group and I thought I might get more than ONE if I posted it more generally.

I have some rotating sprinkler heads on some of my Rainbird pop ups and they work fine. I installed them in places that would give me the coverage I needed. It is no trouble just pop the stems up and screw on the rotating nozzles and adjust them. They come with instructions on how to adjust.

You will like them. They waste less water also.
