    I have a property that I take care of in southern MO it is fescue sod that has a sprinkler system , the owner is not in town often it is just a vac. home , my question is how many days of the week should I set the system to run and what time should it run and for how long, it was a new install last spring and he had it running 30 min at three in the morning every day it did ok but I am afraid that is to much. thanks for the replys sorry about the spelling Shawn
