The 11000 Series Rotors also have an exposed diameter of 2.7 inches, making it far less likely to affect athletes practicing or competing on the field, according to Rain Bird.

“A typical sports field irrigated by a standard one-inch rotor solution will require 35 rotors around its perimeter, 15 of them on the field of play,” said Jeffrey Johnson, Rain Bird’s senior product manager for commercial valves and rotors. “The 11000 Series Rotor can irrigate the same field with 22 rotors, only eight of which are on the field of play. That translates to fewer components and less piping for lower costs, faster installation time and less maintenance.”

The 11000 Series Rotor features a 30-345 degree, reversing, part-circle mode and a non-reversing, full-circle mode with an optional opposing nozzle. The 11000 Series Rotors come with nozzles pre-installed and can be adjusted with a standard screwdriver.

The rotor produces larger water droplets, while the Seal-A-Matic (SAM) check valve prevents wasteful low-head drainage.

The rotor features a 1.5-inch ACME inlet, simplifying installation with swing joints if desired. It also includes snap-ring access from the top of the rotor. Optional features include a sod cup or rubber covers in green for synthetic turf or purple for non-potable water use.
