I live about 20 miles north of the main office and warehouse. I knew the rotors and nozzles looked exactly like Hunter's, but I thought they were cheap foreign knock-offs. Is the plant owned by Hunter or is it a sub-contractor for them?

So wind is the evil enemy of good coverage. Do you have high city water pressure where you are?

Around here if it is over 60psi you think you in tall clover. Either side of 50psi is the norm if there is a norm. Most of the time I try to engineer for at least 35psi at the head.

Harold,
I can go from 25psi with a 3gpm flow up to 130psi(i think thats the highest i've seen. Depending on what city I'm working in average is around 45 to 50 psi. Just depends how far away the city block is from a well source or tank source.

Harold and Tony,
I don't do service(sprinkler)maintenace contracts. Plus, many people either fix it themselves or have their own gardner. Majority of any maintenance\service incedents happen on my own maintenace clients.(helper kicking sprinkler that type of stuff.)
Re- programming of timers, that kind of stuff, if one of my maintenace clients, part of service, but non-client min.$25 service call.

John
