    Ok guys...

    Just for the record, I'm back @ the bottom of the pole. I install what a Rep bid's out...Many things I have been doing I take issue with....I was warned about coming to corporate America and having to Install what someone
    who has barely any irrigation exp bids out...The kid is great and is still learning, but needs to study precip rate very closely...thats all i will say.
    So please take this as a strong caution from now on....

    Deal?

    I have used 3/8's funny pipe to 17mm drip fittings....mixed sprays n rotors....Put bubblers on drip zones.....

    me/fellow tech discussed pros/ cons on moving them up..He assured me that even in this sandy soil climate the water from the hunter pro sprays shooting up hill that gravity would keep the soil close to the road wet.....time will tell Comments?

    Slope helps out the watering. I see enough poison ivy to not mind wearing the jeans. Painter pants are good in hotter weather.
