I realize that, but how does he get the water into the aquariums? An air gap would be sufficient.

What's funny is that I recall Wilkins 720s having pretty clear directional arrows on them... and an instruction sheet.

You mean this silly arrow? My wife says that I am directionally challenged. And hey, it's like Meatloaf says, "Two out of three ain't bad". I got the valves pointed the right way

As far as the instructions, these supplies have been in the basement for two years. Who knows where they went. I must have looked at an online version of the instructions 20 times trying to figure this out before I gave up and asked for help. That is why I left the PVB in the system - to remind me to pay attention to detail.

I will get some pictures of the rotors up afterwork!!

Oh, and no worries about back flow from the tanks themselves, none are hard plumbed into a water source. I fill up 44 gallon garbage cans with water to get the temperature right and add the chemicals. Then I pump the water into the tanks.
That's how the water gets in the tanks...

The final pics

Here you go! Now I have to get the grass out of the planter blocks, kill the weeds and plant the bluegrass.

Thanks again all!!

It's less than 35' across... How many darn rotors do I need?

I have the #1 LA nozzles in start to with. Not sure what kind of pressure I am getting from the pump. I am going to put a gauge in when I change the interior plumbing. I know the rotor output is 45 psi or less as the are the PRS model rotors. I will play with the nozzles to get good coverage. I would think if I go up too high, I could be hitting the street from the planter

It may be something weird with the pictures but it seems like you have them too close together along the row, and then the rows are too far apart.

I spaced them 25' apart along the row and the rows are probably about 30' apart...
