Hey Water Wizard sorry I am not interested in the machine but I was hoping you could help me with something. My inlaws live in CT and they want me to put in a system for them. I was hoping you could tell me what CT requires for an irrigation system as far as type of back flow, permits, and anything else you could think of. Thanks in advance.

its a 25HP Briggs and stratton. the 255 is nice, but is ee them as two different animals. the piper 230 is quick and small.

depends here on town to town, to be safe install an RP backflow. 825Y or whichever you prefer. check with the town for permits, again, its town to town. some towns here let you install on the tree belt while other make you sign a waiver. some towns let you install a census meter on the system too to ofset the sewer bill.....

i guess its only about 15-20 inches shorter than the 255sx.....so, ya, relative...

I remember that the 230 originally came with a cast-iron Kohler (23 HP, natch)

When in doubt, install an RP

On well water, maybe go with a PVB, and get the toxic-rated protection without grief, if the water has any particulate matter.

That machine is a antique , if you are still using them great , I suggest you go demo a few machines like vemeer lm42 or ditchwitch and move into this century

The thread about that little piece a few months ago said same. Action is like a sod cutter, though somehow, pulls pipe.

this piper pulls just fine. ive been using one for over 10yrs. its does not work you to bad and is very fast and neat. i also use a brand new maxi, the piper gets into spots where most machines cannot.

if you are pulling directly off of the well you do not need a backflow device. however, if you pull the water from the basement you do, as it is now attached to the potable water. kinda crazy, but its what its like around here. treebelt= the other side of the sidewalk. some towns want a waiver signed saying the town is not resposible for any plow damage ect....(the town owns the first 10 or 12 feet from the road). State code in CT says PVB, but town inspectors override that and want RP.

In WA, if you have a well and are hooked to potable, it's a RP, period.

If you look at his original #1 post, it has his website, with contact info. Phone #, Email. You might have better look contacting him there, since he is not a regular poster. Good luck.
