T-ing off a line

I have never worked with an irrigation system, but I have a client that needs an additional head to get adequate coverage.
The closest line that does lawn, has 7 heads now. Great pressure and volume.

The question is : What do I need to consider, when tapping into that line and put another head that doesn't require much pressure and volume?

The new head will only hit a 15 ft. radius, but is the same make and model of the other heads.

Coverage is inadequate and it needs to be fixed now. He's had all summer to get the brown spots adequate water. We have to float the rest of the lawn in order to get a little water to the browning areas.

He's not my irrigation guy, anyways, and I don't work with any. Companies are 40 miles away and I can't rely on the one local guy we do got.

Define great pressure and volume and you will have answered your own question.

I always liked "great pressure" as a descriptor. You can always respond, "In that case, I can give you a great system at a great price."

Dont forget to top off the blinker fluid after you have the new head in!
