    this is why I pay the big bucks... just picking, this believer it or not is on the front a VERY nice and expensive house... we will be and if rotor hangs around be ripping every bit of it out and installing a new system, but I feel bad because the previous owner did it himself... sad to see a $2mil+ house w/ a home depot designed irrigation equip

    Is your area still affected by drought conditions or is your area back to full steam ahead?

    I know you said this was a Cheapo system, but are those sprays the right thing for that "bed", would you do it that way (with better stuff)?

    Would you install drip for that bed, or pretty new spray heads?

    What are the new system specs? Price tag?

    that is a homeowner installed system that will be ripped out along w/ the driveway and this will be another disneyland project. on lakes (like this one) I prefer sprays over drip, also given our weather here I prefer sprays regardless because even though plants don't need the water on a regular basis after the first three years it's nice to be able to just turn on those zones when we enter these drought conditions. drip gets chewed through, fills up w/ sediment and whatnot. This system is looking like we'll go w/ a 2wire acc-d clock, maybe a ET unit and a 2hp berkley pump. the home owner who is actually from cal. wants disneyland and that's what I love doing. I won't disclose prices for customer privacy reasons... yall might want me to show photos as I'm building it, and I hate to have neighbors and nosey people gawking.
