Holy schnikes! That pic brings back some memories of adjusting one of those suckers while running.

One time I had the impact end gun come back at me. Almost blew me off the pivot. And yes, the water pressure hurts.

started this job today. we had to weld the flanges onto the existing pipe that goes under the road. the old system used aluminum pipe that was clamped on and was run above ground.
