Spray Bodies

Features

The Ultimate Protection for both Potable and Non-Potable Markets
The RD1800 Series has been built to withstand harsh operating conditions such as chemically treated recycled water (reclaimed / nonpotable), dirty water containing grit, debris, and other particulates, and high operating pressures common in commercial irrigation systems.
Non-potable models add an extra level of defense against the chlorine and chemicals found in recycled water, and feature a purple seal with the international "Do Not Drink" symbol and warnings in English and Spanish
Benefits
Patented, Triple-Blade Wiper Seal precisely balances flushing, flow-by and debris protection to optimize performance and durability at pop-up and retraction. Precision-controlled flushing at pop-up and retraction clears debris, ensuring positive stem retraction
Unique debris pockets hold grit in place, removing it from circulation and preventing long-term damage. Parts are resistant to corrosion in treated recycled water containing chlorine
SAM PRS Models: Incorporates all RD1800 Series SAM and PRS features. Meets the needs of all spray areas, regardless of changing elevation or water pressures
Flow-Shield™ Models: Provides low flow vertical water jet visible from +200’ line of sight when a nozzle has been removed
Non-Potable Water Models: Provides an alternative to clip-on caps and molded purple covers. Easy-to-read English “DO NOT DRINK”, Spanish “NO BEBA” warnings, and international 'do not drink' symbol
