A dual RM site, having some programming issues since the cistern seems to be not getting the re-charge required. The water for the cistern is coming from this pond.

Nice wiring job. I use to do electronic wiring harnesses so I can appreciate that. Thumbs Up
How do the rotator screens hold up with the pond water? Any issues with clogging?

The I-20s, RB 3500s and all the brass nozzles have held up great since the system was installed in 2006. The RB 5F heads have failed, as have a couple of the MPs, but with them, I don't think it's the water quality, in that they chuck, but don't rotate. I did notice today a iron colored water in the overflow from the dual 1200 gal. cisterns, so I want the pump guys to take a look at the screens in the tanks. All in all, it's been a very cool install, with clients that were willing to do it right.

:laugh::laugh: Actually the system works pretty cool, we installed a filtrific.com and pump from there to two 1200 gal septic tanks, then an on-demand pump to the irrigation. :clapping::drinkup:

Hope you are using the RB non potable "mardi gras" caps so the dogs will know not to drink from the irrigation system.

:laugh: Honestly, I did have the water tested before we went ahead with the project, it's potable, though I did install a re-charge valve from the back-flow protected main pump, which I may use for the first time ever. :dizzy:
