In all seriousness, we actually did something similar for a client who had about 3k feet of patio. They wanted a way to to quickly spray water on it because it got to hot for the kids to walk on barefoot. Did a zone of sprays along the perimeter with a manual valve. Now had I put the heads mid patio like in this picture i probably could have used half the heads.

I hate cobras. Why give a great snake name to such a crappy product. It should be called stupid tube.

Someone installed the water service line 6 inches deep. I tagged it with the puller. I was pulling at 10 " . Thinking it was a root I pulled up to hop the root... then water started rushing out. Lol

All is well with a bid for a service line replacement too

dissimilar materials can be welded without issue if the right materials and techniques are used
I'm not so concerned with the quality of the connection as I am with its physical strength. Some suction lines will be in moving water, and they need to have the physical strength of a mechanical connection.

Don't know what kind of chemicals were stored in the closet with the controller but it sure corroded the wires/terminals.
