A recent seminar showed me that I was lacking an important diagnostic tool in my irrigation tool box. Can someone point me in the direction to find this tool here in Eastern Pennsylvania? I've looked on the web but got know where. Thanks !!

Ewing will mail order you one. I use a 100 lb for sprinklers and a 125 for mains. I took the pitot and hooked it to a flexible hose about 2 feet long and put the gauge on that. Lets me stick the pitot in the rotor and see the gauge without getting too wet. I mounted the gauge on a hose bib adaptor and can pull it off and stick it on a unit I made to go on top of a spray body. That lets me see what a spray system is doing and it's all in one kit.

I'll shoot a picture of it and post it.

you are outta controlNot really. I happen to have one of these 'important diagnostic tools' in my top desk drawer, where it's been comfortably resting for a decade or so, just waiting for its big moment.
