Thank you for your welcomes guys. What are you saying I've been run off..I am right here.
It's nice to be taken seriously by at least some of you. I really don't know who you are talking about or who or what "She" or 'Sshrubbler" is. I am Irrigationgrl. Yes! I'm from California. I mainly do residential drip irrigation system/sprinkler system installations and repair. I also do troubleshooting, blow-outs/winterization, and offer consultations (about what I don't care I can consult about anything they need to know anyway).
I don't know doo-doo, but I doo doo know more than my customers do. I get by with the basics. Most of it is kinda no-brainer really..once you get the hang of it.That's a real good thing too cuz I don't have much of a brain, what I do have is blonde/redheaded.
I don't take pics cuz I don't have a camera yet. lemmie see I better go read back and see if I missed anything. Stroking egos you say?? If anyone's ego needs stroking it would be mine boys.

What's that? You completely lost me there. But I do like being referred to as "our new California Rose" Mr. bicmudpuppy, how very nice of you to say. i am not here to find a man..I am here to learn from men. To manipulate men into revealing their secrets about how to master the art of
installing incredible irrigation I am here to squeeze all the information I can out of you guys...then I was planning on leaving you all in the dust empty, shriveled up and bone dry.
But I thought about it and came to the conclusion that exit plan was going to be impossible. Because you men are like me, we are all about getting things wet and applying water and GPM, GPH, PSI,stuff like that.

Whatever do you mean? Me tease? Whyyyy I never....I read the site rules and they specifically state that if I agree to those terms, then I agree not to post anything that is even slightly sexually explicit or pornographic or lewd.
I agreed and I must in all good faith comply.
Do innuendos count? I throw in those sometimes. Plus I have noticed that when a gorgeous, vivacious , single woman like me gets amongst a group of men, no matter what I say it sounds sexually explicit. That is not my fault! Men just naturally take it that way.

You are absolutely right. Happens all the time. More than likely it will happen more during your razzing/hazing time period, and then get back to normal conversation. As long as you're not a hack, then we'll bash you forever :)

Here's a good joke for you Irrigrl.


A man and a woman who had never met before, but who were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a trans-continental train.

Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room,
they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper berth and she in the lower.

At 1:00 AM, the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying,.......... 'Ma'am,

I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket?

I'm awfully cold.'

'I have a better idea,' she replied 'Just for tonight,...... let's pretend that we're married.'

'Wow!...................... That's a great idea!', he exclaimed.

'Good,' she replied. .............'Get your own damned blanket.'

After a moment of silence, ........................he farted.
The End

Very good way to let it all go. On a side note to that, our Hayman fire of 2002 was started by a forestry worker burning a letter from her estranged husband. That was our severe drought year, and fires were illegal. Burned 138,000 acres. We were actually talking about this on the ski trip, as we were showing Les all the dead trees from the beetle kill.

Hey there I.G., tell us a little of how you got into this business and what you did before. I notice you don't have much of a profile. Some sort of anonymity is probably a safe way to avoid unwanted stalkers, but just give us a little bit of your background so we know what kind of experience level we're dealing with...

It is unusual for a woman to pick this field. You seem to have some writing talent too, and that implies higher education... any degree in the O.H. field or anything related?

If dealing with me becomes necessary...then I will elaborate on what I said about my experience in the 1st posts of this thread. No, I do not have any formal education in irrigation whatsoever. I had to leave high school my Jr year in order to support myself. by working.

NOW for you kiril... seems you were very bad while I was away by posting that naughty pic in my thread. When the moderators see that they might think I am stirring you guys up too much and that might cause them to disapprove of me. I am brand new and you are already putting me at risk. Behave.

So I suppose no-one will believe that I am Irrigationgrl and not that She shovel person until I post a pic up. BUT I have a question: Has that She person ever posted a pic of herself so you have some comparison? Do you even know what she looks like?

LOL waterit..dats funny.
I hate having to go advanced caz I can't read the posts above when I do that.

My emitters of choice just happens to be co-incidentally Dial-A-Flow Shrubbler.
They have a fully adjustable flow, you can choose how much water you want it to put out, once an for all instead of having to add or subtract emitters if something is not getting the right amount of water when you chk and adj a newly installed system.
AND there is rarely any need to punch in a spaghetti line w/emitter around to the other side of a large tree or shrub...because when open all the way one or two shrubblers provide great coverage.

This cuts your installation time in like 1/2, eliminates the messy look of little lines everywhere, and the trouble of lines getting pulled out with rakes and people cutting them up with weekwackers, or stepping on them or any of that stuff.

They are cleanable, do not clog up like other emitters and they last three times longer exposed to summer sun. They are superior by far to any emitter on the market today in my opinion.
That is why I use them.

Not sure I agree with this. Shrubblers have their place when installed with a stake and hose. They are as durable as most any other micro spray option. The only major problem that I have seen with them (beyond critter chewing) is caps popping off if adjusted to close to the max, and the entire body (threaded versions) getting blown out of the hose.

I agree and Fimco's not too far off the mark: we've done pots with copper laterals and tubing through the bottoms; no crappy looking spaghetti tubing showing.

Cooper is overkill IMHO, especially since pots can be moved, changed out with different sizes, etc.... but whatever floats your boat (or more appropriately whatever the client will pay for). I also run the pot feeds through the bottom.

My emitters of choice just happens to be co-incidentally Dial-A-Flow Shrubbler.
They have a fully adjustable flow, you can choose how much water you want it to put out, once an for all instead of having to add or subtract emitters if something is not getting the right amount of water when you chk and adj a newly installed system.
AND there is rarely any need to punch in a spaghetti line w/emitter around to the other side of a large tree or shrub...because when open all the way one or two shrubblers provide great coverage.

This cuts your installation time in like 1/2, eliminates the messy look of little lines everywhere, and the trouble of lines getting pulled out with rakes and people cutting them up with weekwackers, or stepping on them or any of that stuff.

They are cleanable, do not clog up like other emitters and they last three times longer exposed to summer sun. They are superior by far to any emitter on the market today in my opinion.
That is why I use them.

I use Shrubblers on a regular basis, but only for container plants, where the adjustable flow is a big plus, and where I never use fewer than two per pot. Usually it's a zone dedicated to clusters of container plants, on a deck or patio, and running off Octabubblers.

BTW, I.G. take a look at the drip offerings from Irrigation Direct (http://www.irrigationdirect.com).

You might like the "cleanable" emitters (http://www.irrigationdirect.com/products/db.asp?id=DD-TC20).

Why bill a flat rate like that? Usually going to be in a shared trench...or if you're using drip tubing, for instance under a deck... less labor, less material costs than a typical lawn zone...

I estimate my costs, add overhead and profit... a typical zone to container plants might be more like $600- $800, and not just to one pot... more like twenty or thirty :)

I'm referring to adding a zone after the install is 5 years or so old. Splice in a valve, run new wire to timer, hopefully won't have to replace to more zone timer, then add piping to pots. It can easily get to 1500 from my experience. Now that we have to make sure the bckflw is up to snuff that may have to be factored in as well. If it is a one or two pot situation I tell the customer to get the SCOTT'S moisture retention potting mix or add lots of vermiculite and use plants that don't need mucho water. I call it balancing the watering needs. Something I've become an expert at.:)

Not sure I agree with this. Shrubblers have their place when installed with a stake and hose. They are as durable as most any other micro spray option. The only major problem that I have seen with them (beyond critter chewing) is caps popping off if adjusted to close to the max, and the entire body (threaded versions) getting blown out of the hose.

Show me what you mean by installed with a stake and hose?
Buttbuttbuttttbut Kiril..... I never adjust them too close to the max so the caps don't blow off. To critters, all emitters are equally chewable, they don't differentiate. I doubt critters prefer shrubblers aver all other emitters . and finally
I never use the threaded barb type just for the reason you stated.

I've never tried to tap a spray zone to water pots. I've added a lot of pots and baskets to drip lines. I've added drip lines to rotor zones when that was the only way to get the water without bending the customer past their bank threshold. I have never been a fan of adjustable bubblers, shrubblers, etc. The 1/4" Hardie tubing with extruded emitters every 6" is a personal favorite. Figure how many .5gph emitters you want and either loop it with a tee or tie off the end. Get them to the pot or plant with blind tubing. I've never looked up the specs, but I don't "feel good" about more than 12-15' (30 emitters tops) on 1/4" tube before tying back into the main feed line. I would think that 1gpm w/ 1/4" tube would be very easy to do, and that would mean 120 emitters or 60' of tubing w/ emitters, but I like to know it will work, not hope for the best.

No, they are not Pepco. They do not have a 2-way arrow on top, they do not have that kind of barb. These are designed differently on the inside than Pepco or any other shrubblers on the market. I know I have experimented with most of them and investigated why Dial-A-Flow emitters work better than the others.
If the emitter does not say "Dial-A-Flow" on the top as well as being numbered from 1 to 10 on the top...it is NOT the same one I am talking about. Also, I don't use them on a stake at all.

This one is set to a low flow, if turned up to 9 the water can reach a circumference coverage of 6" or more depending on the pressure u have. They are far from being "junk" considering most drip irrigation parts offered.

Given your definition, the shrubblers you are using operate exactly like the ones Pepco makes (limited radius). There are two varieties I have seen ... the limited radius group and the large radius group.

Also no offense, installing shrubblers like that is only asking for problems IMHO, and I am sure you know why. If you are going to water like that use Netafim.

Then I obviously defined them in a way you did not comprehend. I assure you you are quite wrong. The Pepco ones do NOT operate exactly the same way. Are you paying attention all to what I am trying to get through to you Kiril?
Didn't I just say that they are different on the inside? Let me try to clarify it one more time for you.

Dial-A-Flow are designed unlike any other shrubbler on the market.
It is a PATENTED design that only they can legally use.
Pepco can't design their shrubblers like Dial-A-Flow shrubblers are designed. Pepco and the others are just copycatting.
They have a different shape to INSIDE AND to the cone that makes them to operate better.
They do NOT operate EXACTLY the same as Pepco.

Now... I hope we don't have to go through this again. It's is OK for you to trust my word. If I you need further convincing I am willing to send you one of each so you can open them up side by side and see for yourself. Or If you insist I will take pictures of the insides of both. I'm sure I have a cheeepazzed Pepco around here somewhere.

IG, I don't care how they are designed on the inside. My point was radius. If your "dial-a-flow" shrubblers have the radius you have stated, then they are exactly like the Pepco shrubblers in that respect. My point (with respect to shrubblers) which started all this is that when you are using a type with limited radius, the chance of cap blow off increase because people are trying to squeeze just a little more coverage out of them.

If you want to show us how different the two brands are, by all means post a pic of the two side by side. We like pics.

If whatever emitter you use can maintain its adjustments and not drift, then it's pretty much all good. As long as it isn't like plastic spray nozzles that begin to shut themselves off once you throttle down the distance.

A lot of times after just throttling them down 1'-2', they will eventually work themselves down farther and sometimes far enough to shut off. Not sure why some will, and some won't. loose screws maybe?

I wasn't getting that 'self-closing' from the Rainbird 'shrubbler' type of emitter, fed from their 1800 Retro adapter filter/regulator.

I'm a fan of the Rainbird PCS screens, for their ability to throttle flow, without drifting. (better if you can design with everything 'wide open' but sometimes it isn't possible)

RB has about 1 nozzle per foot of throw (not really, but close.) The only time I tend to throttle down is on oddly shaped areas, or maybe with SST's sometimes.

RB has about 1 nozzle per foot of throw (not really, but close.) The only time I tend to throttle down is on oddly shaped areas, or maybe with SST's sometimes.I definitely use them less these days. In fact, once they introduced the 5-foot nozzles, the screens weren't fine enough anymore. One definite trick you could do with the PCS screens was to mismatch an undersized screen with a stream nozzle, to create a do-it-yourself shrubbler. Great for roses.
