    We have run into this situation several times because of house/lawn design.

    We have a small area maybe 3x3' is 30 ft. from the nearest spray zone but is within 3' of a rotor zone and a rotor head. We don't want to pull pipe for just one head. Can we put a pressure compensating screen and use a spray head ?

    What do the gurus do? Tell me to pull the pipe and stop the whining? :laugh:

    Even if you compensate pressure, youre still putting out a lot more water with the spray than the rotor.


    Make the other head shoot over into the area?

    Stop being a boob and pull pipe! Is that what you wanted?

    I have suggested a landscape feature like a rock garden in these cases! Maybe a cactus? :rolleyes: Getting rid of the lawn is not likely going to get you a good response. What would you put there instead Kiril?
