New Texas rules and regs regarding irrigation systems. http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/assets/public/legal/rules/rule_lib/adoptions/07027344_ado_clean.pdf How do the guys in Texas feel about these new changes. I think they will be good. It should do away with all the poorly installed systems. I will be a inspector that will check the new installs out. I have seen a few that have been installed in new 350,000 + new homes and they are terrible. It is clearly some of these guys have no clue what they are doing. Lots of 4 rotor specials, or 10' spray heads on the sidewalk spraying to the curb. So they will be spraying about 5' into the street. See rotors on the back fence and spray heads by the porch. Whatever happened to head to head coverage. I understand not ever yard can have that but these yards are pretty square with no trees. They can do that now but once January 2009 starts I believe the part timers will be done. The city I work for will require that they turn in plans prior to installing the system for review. That way we can catch the 4 rotor fix or the sprays between the curb and the sidewalk.
