    Hey fellas, quick question, I've done landscaping and some sprinkler work for the past few years.

    I know how to put in lines, heads, and thats about it...

    When ever I get sprinkler work I usually just install all the lines, heads,
    Timer, drill hole into home for the pipe to hook up the BFP and take them to the side of the house (by the water meter). but that is where it stops, I dont know how to hook up the BFP or Valves/Zones... I want to learn how to hook up the BFP and Valves/Zones so I dont have to sub that part out everytime, lately I've just been subbing the whole thing out because it wasnt worth my time to install all the basics and have someone else do the Brains of the system.

    Is there any good sites on this out there...

    BTW: I've looked through the previous pages and didnt really see anything touching this part.

    It's called plumbing, basically. Who is doing the system designs/layouts?
