    That's just fine, are systems inspected for 80% coverage by the state or
    locals? As our Texas buddies have said, it still does not prevent crappy
    systems from being installed.

    they finally did it eh. Did they close the loop holes they originally had in it as far as being a registered lc or "grandfathering" in people

    Very interesting. I've been meaning to take the exam for a few years but always get sidetracked.

    I had intended this past spring to sit for the exam next week at Cal Poly SLO, but never got around ordering the workbook or the current version of the Turf Irrigation Manual (my copy is a hardcover from the mid 80's)... or applying to take the exam...just forgot about it all...

    So it looks like I'll be signing up for an exam at SLO in December...or maybe November in Anaheim..

    In fact after reading Eddie's post I went to the IA site and ordered the books about 20 minutes ago...
  5. If a Texan with a Texas Irrigators License moves to NC does he get grandfathered in?:) If not we should for being so friggin progressive and establishing a model for the rest of the country.:rolleyes:

    The 6" pit box rule should get lots of support up north.
