    That all depends on what equipment you encounter, and your own level of repair expertise. Stocking 'one of everything' would have you driving a tractor trailer.

    I asked one of my heros, Virgil Young, that same question years ago:
    He replied, " you never have everything you need."

    I like the old slip fix, a few valves, 90's, couplings, busings from 1/2 up to 2 1/2 inches. Heads and Nozzles.

    Specialty tools include a broken-nipple-extractor, and specialty wrenches for any impact-head popups you encounter. A decent multimeter will be invaluable for wiring and controller problems. Bigass slip-joint pliers are a must.
