    Came across a 1977 Ewing "catalog" (actually a 4" binder catalog) of products and price lists. Ewing had six CA stores at that time and the info is priceless. Maybe I should put it up on Ebay? :)

    Boots alltime favorite manufacturer. :laugh:

    Now, if they resold that Intermatic 3-zone timer, I wonder who actually manufactured the 11 zone controller.
    I think I have some of those sprinkler heads.

    Alot of that look similar to some rain bird products. Especially the controller.

    Thanks Hayes...that takes me back! Those were the days when you'd see signs at the distributors that said, "to the trade only".:cry:

    Hmmmm, that Moody brass valve found its way into the Nelson line. I recall a system of those which was always needing a diaphragm replaced. (the beaded edge would separate from the diaphragm - too bad they didn't make it a reverse-flow design, with a diaphragm flaw like that)
