Ditto. Change it one pixel, and add a 2 or B to the end.

That looks like my earlier work

Is the first pic a handyman's compliance with dirty water code, or cleaner/primer gone wrong?

rock garden as directed

I did it! Thanks.

This actually sprays his marble chips with glyco to keep the weeds off them... I've SEEN him do it, and I've seen this system running. Those palms are not like deciduous and conifers you guys are used to, that entire trunk is full of water, he only need to let a little rain and a small amount supplemental irrigation do the job for those trees. but he waters every time i come by there (3 X per month).

Don't you just take the nozzles off & let the water expand up the risers?

I thought I was a (small) giant in a land of mental midgets and have come to find the reverse is true

My point is that every head on this property is above the surface by at least 6 inches. This system was installed about a month ago. She had the same hack overseed her lawn and now it needs its first mowing but there are sprinkler heads all in the way.

Here's a good example of what Tadpole said. HO said he followed the advice in the book (had it in his hand when I got there), was still having problems, and thought he needed a new pump and well:
