    he will be saving 4 $ a piece... per than a hunter pgp..

    i really don't care what he decides...

    but I think K-rains are junk.....
    Trying the season with pgp, might not end up using it...

    Anyone else want to weigh in?

    Keep a file of the addresses of K-Rain installs - surefire service income.

    Especially if it happens like the T-Bird fiasco, when they paid us to replace them.

    BTW Rotar, did you go back to the same company, or are you with a new one?

    That happened to us also, does one think K-Rain would step up
    to the plate like Rain Bird did? Doubt it.

    Doubt it as well. One reason I won't use them.

    I have stuck with RB and Hunter over the years because they have always stood behind their products, even when there was a problem. Even if they cost more.

    So what is the cost of the KRain if they can save $4 a piece? PGPs should be between $8-$10 depending on quantity. That would make the KRain $4-$6. I can get the RB 5004 for under $7 at Ewing right now.

    You're somebody again, I agree. The cost of parts are minor league
    compared to the cost of ripping some cheap junk out of the ground,
    on your nickel.
