Nothing we haven't seen before but always fun to look at.This guy is a top heart surgeon in the Dallas area.
The first is the famous "How do I get water on this side of the fence technique".
The second is the backside.
The third is an es that he pointed at the pot to cause runoff into the bed.
Does anybody else feel that having an exposed label on the head by your front door tacky?
The final two are how I do these small flowerbeds. I also ran one into that pot. We use thousands of the rb 360 ts spikes.

No not me. I've had a RM remote for ten years. London Rain just got his. Has a pic brand new in the box.

That doctor's a heart surgeon because he couldn't handle the "brain surgery" it takes to be a decent irrigator. :laugh:

Funny... Put that WM transmitter next to my new Hunter ICR transmitter and they'd look awfully similar... except mine has a digital readout screen on it. :)

Uhhh, yes that is tacky, and so is that ugly old cement edging there for the pavers, and so are those huge brown lines with white writing on them. Of course when you add water plants to that bet they might hide them.
Think there might be a bit too much water on that area now Tails? Well, you can always just run that zone for 2&1/2 seconds at a time, that might do it.

Hey, I gotta get my digs in when I have the chance ya know, please don't take them personaly.

It's a nice touch that the chunk of fence he ripped out with his hole cut-out is still sitting on the ground below. I'd hate to see what the OR looks like when this guy's through.

Obviously this doctor doesn't have a trenching shovel in his "irrigation surgical tools?" :laugh:

The great thing about this is that you can set the sprayer to mist, shower, stream, or flat mode.

Therefore?:confused: I'm going to research those ICRs and see how they compare performance wise. Their is a mustang and then their is the SHELBY COBRA.

I gather you like tacky? You stated the obvious and still were critical. Flowers and mulch will cover the tubes. The impatiens won't complain about the water.

LOL... The ICR turns Hunter controllers on just like the WM turns other controllers on. :)

So a combination of the two would be helpful. Install all new clocks as Hunters and use RM on existing. I think and you correct me that on the ICR you index through the valves until you get the one you want? Can you jump from zone 8 to zone 16? How fast is the on/off? Is their a half second pause or is it instant?

Irritrols: Why use a WM pigtail that has to clip to each station when the Eicon pigtail connects to the circuit board? I'd then need a third remote system.

I haven't played with it much but you do scroll to the zone you want to fire. There are other "modes" but I haven't had the time to look at it all.

There seems to be a pause when the system is pump supplied. On domestically supplied systems it's pretty much instantaneous. But hey... I'm a government employee and can afford to wait. :)

I was thinking for you because I know you have the Eicon. I'm guessing the 37 pin style remote will cease to exist 10 years from now. The connector is really a glorified extension cord. I'm just trying to understand how a three wire hookup can run zones without scrolling through all the zones to get to the one you want to turn on and off. On the 37 pin remotes each zone is wired in so you can go straight to that zone.

The Eicon uses a radio with key pads and the zone number can just be punched in.

The scrolling of the ICR isn't so bad since we pretty much know what zone we want to start at. We have zone maps on every site with automatic sprinklers and we'll be within one zone even on the largest fields when we fire up the ICR after referring to the zone map.
