with stainless steel 5004 plus prs sam (rainbird owns the rotor world now, i dont care how cheap they are at Dollar General) The 5004 PRS is a cadillac up against ALL Iv seen. Which, today, isnt much I can promise you. )

double check and all the code related gadgets , excluding turf drip in narrows. Yes.

plus any other suggestions that could be sincerely suggested by the only "beat-around-the-bush-until-its-frustrating-old FARTS-that-i-oddly-trust"

getting a roundabout price for a sprinkler system installation including parts, must be the hardest thing for a person to possibly accomplish.

but just before i go crazy, some day! i'll first call the competition and waste their time for a bid on an install I dont really intend to purchase.

F competitive pricing objectives, I only want to install the BEST! period, if that cost me and customers both extra, even extra money, so be it.

______________
so lets say about 12 zones with about 80 rotors and sprays

matter of fact, I actually have done a 20k 12 zone with ~80 heads,

didnt make a nickle
If you a some estimates then post a scaled drawing, gives us the parts you want installed and any info that is specific to the property and then let some guys try to bid on it. Much like a contractor giving the subs plans to bid from.
