Rainbird 3500 minimum distance - how??

Moved into home with Rainbird 3500's that are overspraying into house and sidewalk. Head to Head distance is 18'. I bought new nozzles and the .5 (I think) screwed most of the way down prevents overspray - BUT, it creates such a mist, that any winds blows it away.

I have about 50 psi. What is the right combo of nozzle and radius adjustment for 18ft??

Consider turning down the flow control on the zone valve, if you happen to have one.

At your head-to-head spacing, you might be better off with MP-Rotator nozzles. A really old-school solution would be the Toro Stream Rotor series 300, but that is getting into advanced territory, as those heads only water fixed arcs set by a replaceable inner disc.
