I have a

Hunter 12 sta. ICC controller

1" Febco 825 RP

Fertigator fertilizer injector that no longer works

Mixture of Richdel 205 valves, Rainbird valves and Hunter valves.

My front yard has MP rotators and my back has Toro 570's pop ups,

I have some Netafim sub surface drip tubing and Rainbird Xeribug pressure compensating emitters for my shrubs and ground cover.

I have Toro spider bubblers in my flower beds and pots.

I have an Acclima water management system along with a Fertile earth injector waiting to be installed.

All this on a 7-K lot with about 2-K covered with house, deck and driveway so about 5-K landscaped.

100' garden hose with a Melnor wave sprinkler. (Hell I can't afford one of those dang sprinkler systems) Actually it is a rental and the landlord isn't ready to spring for the irrigation system. He does all the mowing in the season and blows the driveway and walks .

Ever see Melnor in-ground lawn sprinklers and/or valves and timers?

I've got the same timer with 4 shrub rotors on stakes. smallest nozzle available in the rotors. Works fantastic, just don't tell them rich folks that can afford real systems! Put a .5gpm nozzle in the shrub rotor (CR500) and space them up to 30' apart. Run 'em for 3 hours at a shot and everything is beautiful. I used to have 8 heads, but somebody stole 4. Not sure if I want to invest in 4 new ones :)

BTW, the hose bib runs all 8 just fine!:weightlifter:

1" Febco 825 RP
1" Hunter pgv valves
Weathermatic smartline SL1600 with SLW10
4" R.B. or Hunter bodies with combo U-series and mpr nozzles in back yard, front yard same combo bodies, but all MP rotator nozzles

Regarding the weather station, I do think that it will pay for itself in the future. Going to be nice when the weather station will come in the wireless configuration.

Now if I can figure a way for the grass to not die out from the blow up figures that I put out for the various holidays, I would have the best lawn in Manteca.
