Rain Bird PCT Series Pressure Compensating Threaded Bubblers

Rain Bird’s Pressure Compensating Bubblers are ideal for a variety of applications including shrub plantings, trees, containers, annual color, and flower beds.

Rain Bird’s new pressure compensating bubblers are designed for a rugged environment. Offered in 5 gph, 7 gph, and 10 gph models, the bubbler style outlet and medium-flow options provide more flexibility for commercial applications. The ½” FPT threaded inlet makes these devices ideal for installations using a PVC pipe and schedule 80 risers.
