I need a spelling and grammar checker here. I'm answering the phone, printing out work orders, giving out the days work to the crews and I'm mentally fragmented.

Did I see a tongue in the check of that little laughing face??? I guess you must pretty much agree since you didn't take me to task.

I absolutely agree with you. I have found that designing and building a complex system to be easier than a simple one. For example A designer/builder can throw alot of unecessary junk into a system without thinking about it, but to build the right system for the application takes more thought.

What do some of you charge for a typical irrigation design on residential account about 20,000sf?

Customers and many contractors don't know or understand precipitaion rates
which wouldn't be that bad if they hadn't gone and ruined the bussiness for those of us that do. :-( Almost everyday I see systems that have a mister stuck onto a rotary zone to cover some obscure little corner or nook or cranny, but around here no one wants to pay the price for a system that is designed properly when there are so many guys out there willing to put in garbage for dirt cheap..

You mean they install "cheater sprays"?

Hey, I did that once or twice. I mean no one gives you a perfect landscape so it's hard to build a perfect system. The soil was sandy and forging. I do draw a line sometimes. I just don't have the guts to build a one head zone for some obscure little corner. Thats going from excellence to neurotic perfection.

I guess I draw a line between excellence and perfection. Excellence is attainable and perfection is like chasing the end of the rainbow.

With the introduction of low angle rotors, particularly Hunter I20 with their great assortment of nozzles, design and problem solving has become easier.

We've even used a "cheater rotor" on a spray zone. You can come pretty close to your spray zone precipitation by carefully selecting the proper low angle nozzle.
