Sprinkler system for larger jobs

We have been using a sprinkler system for some of our larger seeding jobs this year, it's an above ground system that uses batteries in the control valves and a hand held programer. the 2" or 3" lines are slip fit with a rubber gasket and rubber/plastic strip that gets inserted into the fittings. 2" and 3" lines

control valve

area being set up

On this site water is 1000' away and 250' lower, hooked up to a deep well and fed with a 10 hp electric pump.

Looks great paul

Do you have a backflow on that system also?

Only problem is, here in NJ it would be illegal to do without a licensed irrigation contractor to put it in.

Steveair, this is a temp system and there is no need for a back flow preventer on this one, the well is at a land fill so......

On others we have a back flow preventer that taps a hydrant along with the meter.

I've also have used the unik systems from rainbird. I of mixed oppion. Sometimes they work great. The problem I had was not having the programming unit with me or the infared would be too dirty. It is handy for doing a temp system like the case you're doing.
