Rain Bird Corporation, a privately held company, was founded in 1933 during the agricultural boom in California. We are the leading global manufacturer and provider of irrigation products and services. Since the beginning, Rain Bird has produced and offered the industry’s broadest range of irrigation products for farms, golf courses, sports arenas, commercial developments and homes in more than 130 countries around the world.
Over the past eight decades, Rain Bird has been awarded more than 450 patents worldwide, including the first in 1935 for the original horizontal action impact drive sprinkler (U.S. Patent #1,997,901), which revolutionized the food production industry and ushered in a new era in irrigation, worldwide.
We almost exclusively use Rain Bird products. We have found over the years that they outperform the other brands with most of their products. We also use Rain Bird's commercial-grade products. These commercial-grade products are only available through distributors like Grand Junction Pipe. The plastics seem to be tougher and last a lot longer than if you were to buy them through a retail store like Home Depot.
We have been using Rain Bird products since we established the company in 1997. Though we have, in certain circumstances, installed other manufacturer's products, it seems like we always come back to Rain Bird.
