I'm sorry this sounds like work. I mean day in day out work. AND I'm not being paid.

You need to space these at 20 feet assuming your irrigated area is really 60 x 40. Don't use standard rotors at that distance, the close in coverage gets jacked when you crank it down that much.

Just use MPR40-06-CV with MP2000 nozzles. The only thing you need to be concerned about with the MP2000 is maintaining your dynamic system pressure above 40 PSI (somewhere between 45 and 50 would be ideal), or you will probably end up short on the coverage. If you are concerned about the edges along the hardscape, use SDI (netafim) tied into the same zone.

From the info I can see I would use MP Rotators @ 20' spacing. You may not be able to run 3 zones at one time and maintain correct pressure. Dumping a lot of water at a short time is not the best idea and MP's water slowly. At one point you say money is not a problem and then state you want to save electricity. You are contradicting yourself as the amount of electricity to you will use will not be very significant.

No offense but it seems your basic knowledge of irrigation is limited and you probably should consult a professional and get it right the first time.

As long as professionals are willing to give free advice in this forum, why would he go elsewhere ;-)
