    We received one of two bids today for our irrigation installation for our parish campus. We're interested in the front of the property as highlighted in the plot of survey attached.

    Suggestions include:

    Rotary Heads - Hunter PGP Gear Drive
    Spray heads - Rainbird 1800 Series
    Electrical Valves - Irritrol 2400 Series
    Controller - Pro-C
    Interior pip - Copper 1"
    Underground pipe - Polyethylene/PVC

    Is this adequate for church/school grounds? Any problems with foot traffic, snow plows, etc.?

    Suggestions include:

    Rotary Heads - Hunter PGP Gear Drive

    spend the extra cash and get hunter i 20



    Spray heads - Rainbird 1800 Series

    i like hunter pro spray with rainbird nozzles...just me.



    Electrical Valves - Irritrol 2400 Series

    go for hunter jar tops...irritrol solenoids burn out too fast too frequently


    Controller - Pro-C

    can't go wrong with a pro c


    Interior pip - Copper 1"

    sounds good...put a watts 800 m4 backflow or rpz...pvb more cost effective.


    Underground pipe - Polyethylene/PVC

    poly pipe for heads, pvc from back flow to manifold.


    below, i have the same type of system installed here...i did not design, but our company installed it. check it out. works good, no?

    Hunter I20 rotors and Institutional series spray heads. Water proof wire connections with no underground splices. Only splice at valves. Matched precipitation nozzles on rotor heads. Head to head coverage.
