    Hey guys.

    I am going to be starting my "first" commercial job next Wed. I have done a few others but not anything that will be plumbed and covered by a parking lot.
    I am planning on all irrigation that will be covered by pavement to be ran in sleeves that our twice the diameter of the main/laterals.
    Does that sound right?
    The only thing that is different to me is plumbing all the irrigation inside of the sleeves. Ex. running a lateral line parallel to a concrete planter then t-ing into it. Basically double plumbing, right?!? Then once into the planter we will be installing deep root bubblers, etc.

    I think this is the same way that I have plumbed for pots sitting on concrete. Ran 3" sewer drainline, and 1/2" inside the drainline.

    Does that make sense to anyone???

    Thanks,

    Evan
