Also, always use my analogy that a sprinkler system is just like a vehicle. There will always be repairs and upkeep as there are moving parts, electrical systems that fails, routine maintenance just like changing oil, etc. Plus there are always upgrades to make the system/vehicle better, more efficient, and more shiny!

Maybe that's my next calling, creating some unnecessary BLING for a sprinkler system. Something to shine it up, but does absolutely nothing.

In specific applications rotary nozzles have a good use. In most others they are just useless bling

Yea .... cause a pigtail makes or breaks a system, but a highly efficient nozzle is just useless bling.

Not like the lady first job of the day.

So I said we can come back either at the end of my day or in a couple days from now... " Bla bla bla! I got 5 rentals for you and 10 nieghbors for you!! I'm taking them allllll away if you don't fix this now!!!""
my reply is "if you want to impress me, take your eye out"................... we all breath the same air mitch
