Steps for Adjusting a Rain Bird Sprinkler Head

Adjusting a sprinkler head requires only the use of a single screw driver, and just a manual for people who have not done any adjusting before.

  1. The first step is to stop the entire sprinkler system and ensure no water is slowing through the sprinkler head.
  2. Going over the entire sprinkler system, find the sprinkler head that needs to be adjusted and make sure water is drained out of that as well.
  3. Next look for the screws on top of the sprinkler head. Using a screwdriver, tighten the screw head on the sprinkler. Tightening it will decrease the distance of the sprinkle head spray.
  4. Next the direction of the water spray can also be adjusted. Grip the head and then turn the nozzle to a direction wants the spray to hit the plants/grass. By doing so, one can easily move the spray anywhere required without having to change anything else.
  5. Also pull up on the variable arc nozzle and turn it to either right or left to increase or decrease the length of the sprays. The number indication on the nozzle indicates the feet at how far the sprinkler will throw water. Adjusting the nozzle is also called adjusting the radius of the sprinkler and for this purpose a flat belted screw driver is preferred.
  6. After making sure the nozzle and the sprinkler head is securely tightened off, open the water supply of the sprinkler system and observe for any pipe leakage or wrong water spray.
