    Had some "spare" time so I drew up 3 different plans to water the same area. The first plan shows the measurements. Which plan would you choose?

    plan 1 - 2 zones with sprays and rotors
    plan 2 - 1 zone with 14 sprays
    plan 3 - 1 zone with 10 sprays

    Anyone know of any other optional layouts?

    I'd go with Plan 1, but I wouldn't use that tiny spray zone, I'd put one rotor very fuzzed up in the corner.

    Why not use MP-Rotator 1000s and 2000s which could be incorporated into a single zone? :)

    I thought about mprotators as a 4th option, but i'm trying to avoid the overspray at the 7' corner. I'm thinking a 1000 series mprotator can only be adjusted down to 10' or so at best.

    I recently did a similiar job with a 10' corner and used the mp's. Even thou I used prs heads and adjusted the mp down in the 10' corner there was still overspray of about 2'

    Huge spray zones are a real pet peeve of mine.

    You could always put a flow control type valve in, use 1000s and 2000s/3000s and throttle the flow down just a little.
