    haha..
    This guy has been in the trades a long time...He has been slipping in the field due to personal problems involving to many otter pops and gennie bucks.

    regardless he claims it gave 12 gpm on the flow gage.Four days later a poor 5 GPM from the town water was recorded...

    He zoned all heads/valves for 11 or so Gpm....

    1. I haven't gotten paid..
    2.He is installing a booster pump.
    3.I haven't gotten paid...
    4.He is blaming the town....The town could care less.
    lol....Goes to show you even the TOP DOGS make mistakes...

    We all eat crow in the trade.....How much and for how long depends on the person.

    This is why you use PGPs, and re-nozzle with #3 and #2 and #1 nozzles. :p
