Let me know in 50 years if your pvc/poly systems are holding up. I service about 2 dozen brass systems that are 40+ years old. Yes, hydraulic valves on many. Buckner of Fresno heads or Champion of Los Angeles were the name of the game. And lest we not forget the Space 15's.

One interesting thing about the old Weathermatic line of brass nozzles, is that they had part numbers that implied the triangular spacing (in feet) they would be placed in. Seven ranges, from 10 to 24
