    Let me know if you are thinking of installing another system, I've got a bunch of old crap laying around in the back 40 I'd like to clean up; washing machines, old lawn mowers, tires, broken ladders, you know, the typical irrigation system stuff. :)

    And if you only knew what I made my moisture sensors out of...LOL! I never knew it was a bad thing to have a MacGyver approved irrigation system. The main point was that even a system built from junk has outperformed some "professional" installations.

    Just because a "professional" built a system doesn't mean it is done right or is a quality build ..... in fact the opposite is true more times than not.

    MacGuyver built his own Rainmaster controller from chewing gum and popsicle sticks.

    MacGuyver studied under the eminent sprinkler genius, Tom Swift, I believe.

    Tom discovered the 24-volt valve solenoid from space garbage.
