I hear ya about watering being expensive! Here is Spfld, they get us on sewer. They claim they keep the water prices 'flat" but the sewer prices go up and up. I just laid all new KBG last fall after having a "central Illinois mix" (rye, creeping red fescue, kbg, etc.). Since its a hybrid of about 5 different types of KBG it should do ok in the heat and full sun, but I know KBG needs more water than other grasses. I have several of the other sprinklers you suggested. They do work better for consistentcy, but damn do they take forever. It literally would take 5 hours to fill a tuna can. Can you tell, I am scared that this summer will be like last? It was awful and I don't want to lose this new grass. Although it's too hard to control disease like last summer.
