4 part irrigation Question thread....

1. Where are you from?

2. What do you use to trench?

3. What are your personal fav products/why?

4. what do you charge per zone..

5.commercial or residential?

ok here goes..

im Eddie from cape cod mass

We use a 255 plow ditch witch that goes up to 18 inches..Sometimes on our ball fields we use the 4-10 that we sub out..We only use poly pipe as up here we are lucky...

3.ok here goes for our personal fav products:\
Rotar heads as follows:

Big rotar-Hunter 1-25-nothing compares where we are-best stream/water usage
MED ROTAR-HUNTER PGP- for all of our residential instally...durable,cost efficent,easy to adjust,great nossles,burrys great/easy to interchange with the service work ie Swaping the guts
small rotar-Rainbird 3500-they get the job done in small spaces

Spray heads-
hunter 10,12,15,17 ft adjustable-best to bury..small...easy to matienence..great umbrella
toro 570- 2>3>4>8>12 inch pop ups....best nossles...easy to burry durable..work great by roadsides...

Controlers-Rainbird...costly yes..durable....easy to set up....last long time

rain sensors- i guess it dont matter..

wire-not that crap from cali

backflow-PVB febco 765 i inch usually

valves-Rainbird-def the best....little to no problems with them after years in the ground.

I guess those are the basics

4.we charge anywhere from 475>600 a zone on residential

5. we do both..trying to get a ball field with a 2 inch pvc main feed from a 45 gpm i belive..... and i hope we land the SOB

It was another joke, I'm a software developer, I write server applications.

The reference was from Senator Stevens (The guy in charge of government/internet relations apparently) saying this a few months ago:

"The internet is not a big truck, its more like as series of tubes"

Which spawned the term InterTubes, as his statement was so incorrect it was amusing.
