    Hassle-free. No trenches to dig. Installs in minutes.
    Garden hose clicks in and out of connection. No screwing.
    Stays in place while you mow.
    Hides underground.
    Most yards require placement of 3 heads.
    To water, pop hose into connector (on right in photo). Turn on water and pop-up head (shown on left) sprays.
    Easy to install. Easy to angle to aim water.
    70 ft. diameter spray area, up to 360° angle.

    ...and a direct cross connection at no extra charge! What a POS.

    But does it qualify as having a swing joint?

    :rolleyes:

    I bet it operates at <30psi too...maybe its the answer to my new install. Hmmm, set some quick couplers in convenient locations and viola!

    Ah damn...:laugh:


    Seriously though, this would be something that would be PERFECT for me to get for my grandpa's yard. Seriously. He doesnt have the money for underground irrigation, plus he likes watering anyway, just to have something to do, but as he gets older he isnt doing the best job at it. This might be the answer? Just put them where they need to be all he needs to do is move the hose around. Might be something to look into?
     
  7. I have a neighbor with something similar to that. Very shallow pipe with a ready made swing joint attached to an r-50. Has been abandoned because I see him watering with a rainmobile.

    OK, I'll bite.... what's a rainmobile? Is that some artsy, decorative sprinkler on a garden hose?
     
  9. You never worked on a golf course I see. Traveling sprinkler ring a bell?
