    He's not telling Ed but there are rumors that he carved the as-builds of his first mega on a stone tablet.

    He used a SunDial controller and sched 40 mayans and latins.


    It's not the years Ed, it's the miles.

    A day older and a day smarter. Just zeroed two RainMaster clocks (90 zones total) and re-initialized for a lower water table on seperate potable/cistern connections with concurrently running and re-charge delay start times. You want to try that at your age? :cool2:

    The inspectors here want to see the primer, specially when using potable.

    We usually extend it about 1/4" or so outside the coupling and sprinkle it liberally everywhere else for that true Florida look.:p

    Isn't that a combination of 3/4 and 1" tees I see in that pic?

    if you mean the six-in-a box manifold, then yes, it uses a number of the 'nesting' fittings manufactured by Dura

    My lateral lines into the zones are CI 200 pipe.

    In my manifold I use slip, threaded, slip tees. The valves are connected to the tees with threaded nipples and the tees are glued to each other using pvc pipe.

    When I glue the Tees together, should I use schedule 40 or CI 200 PVC pipe? Perhaps it doesn't matter.

    Different strokes for different folks, I never use CL class pipe.
