Today I'm starting up another customer's system and one of the heads isn't rotating by the end of the driveway. I go to inspect and immediately notice it isn't a Hunter PGP. It's a Lego.

I thought they only made toys? I know I'm really new in the world of irrigation but I never knew. I figure the installation company had one to get rid of or something but I'm just guessing.:)

That's what I did. Works great. I was just curious about the Lego more than anything.

Well they make plastic stuff, so why not sprinkler heads.

I'm sure they build crap for the space shuttle too.

Lego Irrigation is an Israeli company. They have some low voltage controllers and valves among other things. Here is a link about them. Jeff

I've seen some of their impact heads in yards here. No idea where people got them. But.... they are now in the landfill :laugh:

if its at the end of the driveway the customer probably ran over it and replaced it.ask him so you don't have to go thru any grief when he gets the bill.

Interesting that the client has to be slammed upside the wall before they
tell you what happened.

As new as I am to irrigation, I don't know much about Conbraco or Lego. But I do know customers with Orbit systems are on their own. :nono:

Orbit gear drives = Hunter.

Orbit gear drives = Hunter.They also have what looks like a Rainbird 5004 clone. Conbraco seems okay, from a distance. They have an RPZ design that looks like it can be drained for winter without any dismantling, and they were smart enough to buy the old Watts PVB design.

Supply houses are fed up with FEBCO pricing so they seem to be boycotting them. I paid 65 for that 3/4" DCVA Conbraco.
