    A job with irregular lay out with lawn bordered by low ground cover,lays out on paper best with 18' radius(radii?)

    Low water available,6gpm,less than 1/2 acre.

    MP rotator?

    The 2000 flavor would be my choice.

    Yup, what's the low water deal, a well? I like 35psi to 50 for those little dears,
    with 50 my choice. Remember, a run time of a hour or more is normal 'cause
    of the low precip. rate; you may need a delay in between zones and/or
    multiple start times.

    Street water 3/4" line,5/8 meter. Tests out at 6gpm@46psi

    Anyone use the MP strip and corners?How bout the MP1000 for smaller radius stuff?
     
  5. We use them all. Corners leave something to desire. 100s are okay just don't stretch

    i dont think its troubles, just that those run times are going to take a while..

    I think the 2000 @ 40 psi throws 20 or so with .5 gph or close to that..
