    The homeowner(supposedly a licensed plumber installed this with no boiler drain) so we took it apart and had to installed one.. What blew me away was the fact this guy didnt install any sodder in the joint...

    The side yard all 570 fixed sprays..prepped and ready to go...It was a busy day so I didn't have much time to grab the camera..I tried..we had it pulled with the piper and prepped before 10:30.

    The other side of the yard..all 570's fixed sprays.Great water pressure.

    one thing i hate about the piper is the amount of digging required..but alas we couldnt fit the 255 in there..

    I was happy with my toro flow gauge until i read that it is only accurate when the psi is under 40 or 50. Would have given mine away, think I played can hole with it.

    Not true. The flow gauge is indifferent to supply pressure. All it is is a 30 psi gauge with a special scale. Once you calibrate it, by comparing it to a water meter, when all the water flowing through the meter is going to the flow gauge, then you can find a 'set point' where it is dead solid perfect.
