  • 40-360° arc rotation and reversing full-circle rotation in one. (A non-reversing full-circle only unit is also available)
  • True 4″ (10 cm), 6″ (15.2 cm) and 12″ (30.5 cm) pop-up (measured from the cover to the nozzle)

Durability

  • Heavy-duty cover assembly for extra durability in residential or commercial applications
  • Heavy-duty retract spring assures positive pop-down
  • Pressure-activated triple-blade multi-function wiper seal protects internals from debris and assures positive pop-up and retraction
  • Additional O-rings and seals for extra protection in “gritty” water
