    I never said stuck nozzles, but i will include them.
    Difference between body, heads, and pop up nozzle.
    If you were intellectualy honest, you'd know that.:cool2:

    1) "spigot"
    2) when i step on it, mow it, kick it, you turn it on after winter and the "hammer effect" busts the head, it doesn't retract cause its a home cheapo, we drag a tarp and bust the hard pipe sticking up from the ground, or the mower pushes the body over and busts the hard pipe that it's attached to... Plese call for an estimate.

    hey. didnt say it would be a good alternitive. just a cheaper one.

    avoiding it wouldnt be any different than avoiding those dumb walk way lights.

    yeah, don't expect me to weed and rake without snagging your stupid outdoor light power cords and drip-lines strewn about the beds:hammerhead:
