    Walkthrough on our newest school site. You tell me.

    Pictures #1: Hint; part circles along fence line are one zone and full circles at right are next zone.

    Doesnt look like head to head coverage to me! <in the first pic> Are those 2001s?
    I see a brown streak though the field.

    The brown streak is the newest trend in lawn fashion. Everybody wants it.

    BINGO! There's 94' between the sprinklers. Even with a booster pump there is no way the sprinklers will cover the area between zones. My boss is trying to get hold of the original plans to see if maybe sprinklers were installed and a valve just hasn't been working from day one or if there just aren't any sprinklers in this area.

    They're Hunter I-40s.

    Here's two pictures looking the other direction. These are spaced 98'.

    Ever use the Hunter I-60 series in retrofit applications?

    aside from the spacing issues........the pressure looks WAY too high. have you measured the pressure at the head?

    We've tried a few but we don't like their "openess" of the riser. One only lasted a week after one of our mowers ran a tire over it. Still have three cases in the back room.
