    Hi All,

    Two months ago I laid sod around my back patio, but my current configuration does not quite get complete coverage. I have attached a picture of the layout and the way the heads are positioned and set to spray. The large one on the left is a 180, and the remaining three all spray in two ways.

    Does anybody know where I can get the heads that spray two ways as mine don't seam to spray to the sides quite far enough or a different type of head that would work in this situation?

    Thanks for any help.

    Strip heads have never worked well for me. You are better off to run 90's and 1/2's along both sides of the narrow area, spraying towards the middle. Use 5' heads and you should be ok

    Change your configuration.

    You will not be able to get heads to properly cover your areas unless you move your existing heads and add additional heads. You also haven't given us any dimensions.

    There is no possible way to get proper head-to-head coverage with four spray heads, it doesn't matter what nozzles you look for, unless you flood your entire yard once a week. You must have brown spots all over the place.
