Rain Bird 5000 Nozzles Are Engineered to be the Industry’s Most Reliable and Best Performing Rotor
With unmatched performance from 25’ to 50’ coverages, your new Rain Bird 5000 sprinkler head makes light work of residential, light commercial, and commercial applications. Get even coverage and enduring reliability with the best rotor that contractors demand.
Evenly Distribute Water Over Medium to Large Size with Rain Bird 5000 Nozzles
Rain Bird’s 4” rotor with 2.0 nozzle is excellent for offering unmatched performance. From 25’ to 50’ coverage, you can enjoy the innovative features and industry-leading curtain nozzles with performance and reliability in mind, proven by millions of installations.
A 4” (10 cm) pop-up height is perfect for clearing the grass while still providing full circle water distribution. This pop-up height also takes into account the natural space lost to sprinkler rotors sinking into the ground. Now, you can get adequate coverage through every watering application.
What’s more, the Rain Bird 500 series rotors’ revolutionary slip clutch makes it easy to set the left edge of your spray pattern. With a 19-second application, you can save time when it matters most when installing hundreds of rotors each year.
Rain Bird 5000 Nozzles & Rotor Series Innovative Features
Superior Distribution Uniformity
Rain Bird 5000 Nozzles and rotor series are engineered to deliver a uniform spray pattern, thanks to innovative Rain Curtain Technology that gives you a consistently healthy, green lawn throughout the acreage.
Superior Wind Resistance
Rain Curtain Technology produces larger water droplets that offer superior wind resistance. You can prevent misting and airborne evaporation to deliver the correct water amount to the right place, thus saving you water and money.
Superior Close-In Watering
Dry spots around the rotor? Not anymore with Rain Bird rotor sprinkler’s superior close-in watering. This gentle close-in watering eliminates dry spots around the rotor, which prevents seed washout. Thus, you’ll allow turf to grow healthy without matting or bending.
Durable Leak-Free Wiper Seal
Rain Bird 5000 nozzles include an oversized seal—almost 5x the sealing surface of competitors, which means 5x greater leak protection— to prevent puddling and leaks. The leak-free seal guarantees consistent pop-up and retraction from your sprinkler head for years to come, never needing replacement. Because replacing the wiper seal on competitors’ products is time-consuming and expensive, you’re saving time, money, and energy by choosing Rain Bird’s 5000 nozzles.

A Glance Inside Rain Bird 5000 Series Rotors
At the very top of your Rain Bird 5000 sprinkler head, you’ll first see a reinforced, durable rubber cover.
Next, you’ll discover the flow path to the nozzle bore transition radius. Then comes the reduced flow path entrance, followed by the durable, reliable water-lubricated gear drive. The gear drive is nearby the grit-resistant seal, finishing up with a heavy-duty stainless-steel spring towards the bottom of your rotor. See the product graphic above to get a closer look at how your Rain Bird 5000 rotor is constructed.
Options For All Rain Bird 5000 Nozzle Applications
When you choose a Rain Bird 5000 series nozzle, you’ll have the available option of flow shut-off in plus models to make installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting that much easier. This saves you trips to the controller and the valve so that you can focus your energy elsewhere on the landscaping!
You have the option to add a Seal-A-Matic (SAM) check valve to your Rain Bird sprinkler head— this holds up to 7 feet of elevation change, thus prevent low head drainage.
Lastly, you can feel confident that you’re getting consistent distribution without misting and fogging, thanks to an in-stem pressure regulation option for PRS models. Rain Bird’s PRS models can save you over a gallon of water per minute by reducing excess water pressure, ensuring each sprinkler head is regulated to no more than 45 PSI.
Using a pressure-regulated stem (PRS) model optimizes the performance and flow of water in each sprinkler head in the zone by balancing the outlet pressure. Using a PRS model guarantees water-efficient performance across the entire sprinkler system and takes the headache and guesswork out of designing your sprinkler system.
