I can't tell if the O.P. just thinks he's being funny or if he's that big of a c@ck!

As a few others have said, swap the low end parts for the quality parts. The piping on the pink zone is ridiculous too. Tee off in the middle of the 8 heads so you have even pressure in two directions so there are 4 heads on either side of the tee from the valve. As someone else said, the little square near the paving is also a bit of pita. Change it from lawn to something else.

We're all pros and depend on service and installs to feed our families; big difference from a h.o. seeking free advice.

I see that the "Point Of Contamination" is clearly marked on the plan.

I don't see it but it should be worded "Possible Points Of Contamination"

Talk about bad p.r., RB and anyone else doing free designs, selling their low-end crap and pimping us for work. If I did not like 1800 and 5000 series heads, I tell RB to stick it until the crappy free design stuff ended. Something I might bring up at I.A., "security, report to the Rain-Bird booth".
