Recommend a line of SDI products?

Water is extremely expensive in my area (despite being near Seattle where it rains most of the year ) thanks to local politics. Most of my neighbors have capped their systems and have opted to let everything brown out during the summer rather than endure the $400+ monthly water bills. Despite my reservations about potential drawbacks, I have decided to forge ahead with plans for an SDI system to irrigate ~2,500 feet of turf (in addition to 2,500 sf of trees/bushes/flowers).

I am leaning toward Netafim products because it seems that's what most installers here have experience with, but am aware of at least a handful of competing products. What should I look for when choosing a product line? Any reason to pick the other products over more commonly used Netafim stuff?


Netafim tech series
Rain Bird XFS
Hunter eco-mat and pld-esd
KISSS system (similar to eco mat)
Toro Microdrip

Netafim TLCV is state of the art. They are the company who is responsible for modern drip irrigation, everyone else just follows in their footsteps.
