    Hell I came up with that years ago. Previous employee needed one rotor for his little lawn at his rented place. But the "quick snap" fitting was in a 6" round box. So you'd have to pop the lid and hook the hose up. Guess I lost out on my millions. But at least I used a PGP.

    Yeah, I thought that was the kicker. Mike - isn't that how you guys do some winterizing?

    We did a system at a pig farm a few years ago similar to that - 4 rotors on square spacing, RB quick-connect valve that the owner would hook a fire hose to (had a 20HP sub pump for his water supply). We used Falcons.

    In all fairness, that is a pretty neat idea...I'll bet the guy make more money in a year selling something that someone else makes (most if not all of the parts are already being made by someone else) All hes is doing is assembling and packaging.


    But I'll stick to my impact head on a tripod...

    We use them to winterize backflow assemblies.

    The Rocky Mtn. guys are going to go nuts about winterize, all ready.
    However, all you need is 7 psi to clear a DCVA/RP. Pump thru the testcocks, but don't leave the test
    cocks open, set the ball valves @ the backflow at at 45 degree angle.
