Question about Ace Hardware Hunter& Low Profile III Ceiling Fan
First off, I wish these heads were more intuitive in adjusting the spray. One adjustment for left, One for right and made clear where center is from adjustment point.
Ok, when I was trying to adjust the spray, it started clicking now it won't do anything. I'm trying to set the spray pattern. Is the head now broken or can I fix it....help!
I googled Hunter sprinkler heads and where to purchase them. In my area (the East bay, Tri-Valley) in Nothern California.
I went to Ewing Irrigation in Dublin, CA and found the Hunter sprinkler heads there. The man working the counter got two for me and he demonstrated how to change the head by unscrewing it from the base at or just below ground level by removing the old one and screwing in the new head. He also showed me how to adjust them with the spray pattern. You will need the little tool that comes with the sprayer head.
Making sure the center arrow is completely to the left and rotate the head to the right then back to left. They are set to a 180% spray pattern from the manufacturer. If you want a bigger pattern you turn the adjuster toward the ( + ) side and if you want less pattern you turn the adjuster to the ( - ) side. He showed me how to install the red sprayer inserts by simply pushing them in the cavity making sure the little u shaped indentation is pointing up to allow for the set screw to go through to adjust the spary.The spray varies in distance and amount of water being emitted from the head depending upon the insert used.
I was able to replace the Hunter head, adjust the spray and changed out the insert a few times until I found the one I liked. I used needle nose pliers to remove the initial spray insert that the man @ Ewing installed until I found the one that worked best.
I found using needle nose pliers makes it very easy to grasp the little inserts for replacing.

Hunter heads have a fixed right stop. Simply rotate the sprinkler all the way to the right until it clicks, and then rotate to the left until it clicks again. By using the Hunter Adjustment Key (tool), simply turn to the "+" to adjust it to a larger radius and to the "-" to adjust it to a smaller radius. These rotors are the best in the industry and should last for many many years under normal operating conditions. Far better than anything Rainbird, Toro, or K-Rain offers to contractors or homeowners.
