Everyone off christmas shopping? I'm working for a few more days and then I'll take until the new year off. With temperatures around 38 during the day in 25 at night, I'm ready for a mini break. Just to keep this irrigation related, we do a lot of work before the landscapers have the final grade, or topsoil done. Most of the time, we just poke our swing pipe up out of the ground where heads should go until they are done, and then install the heads. Does anyone else do this? Its saved us considerable time trying to locate buried or broken heads.
