he may have even been from So Cal, Tx or Georgia as far as that goes.

More likely the broken line i found.

3psi was the least of that installers problems. I m with mike, guy needs to figure out how to use a wheel and take a class on head-to-head irrigation.

How long to find the valves?

That zone is either 10' or so above the poc or below the poc(if city water).

And heads arent spaced correctly. Not that it has anything to with you. It would be an upsell for me.

Your depth perception must not be working today, i have none and i could see that it's 50 to 60 feet maybe even more. The pressure tank is another 25 feet above the point the pic was taken.

There is no upsell potential here, trust me. Jobs like these are why i do few repairs.

if your pumping down, you would have a few extra psi with .5 vs .433
