    Don't hang your head! Rejoice for there is WORK and plenty of it :clapping:

    City water... 40 - 50 old year galvanized pipe to a 1.25" meter with reduction bushing to 1" into the irrigation system. They are trying to figure out why they are just not getting the coverage... WTF?

    I love the patch... I love it even more when $hit breaks.

    Like when your neighbor is nice enough to mow part of your yard for you......with the mower at the lowest possible setting in the hottest part of the year.

    DCVA, and no irrigation system yet. Maybe I'll get it done this fall.

    A dead giveaway? Large circles of green turf with rings of brown. Usually loss of pressure/volume. No head to head coverage in original design.
