    I realize that, but how does he get the water into the aquariums? An air gap would be sufficient.

    You mean this silly arrow? My wife says that I am directionally challenged. And hey, it's like Meatloaf says, "Two out of three ain't bad". I got the valves pointed the right way:)

    As far as the instructions, these supplies have been in the basement for two years. Who knows where they went. I must have looked at an online version of the instructions 20 times trying to figure this out before I gave up and asked for help. That is why I left the PVB in the system - to remind me to pay attention to detail.

    I will get some pictures of the rotors up afterwork!!

    That's how the water gets in the tanks...

    Here you go! Now I have to get the grass out of the planter blocks, kill the weeds and plant the bluegrass.

    Thanks again all!!

    It's less than 35' across... How many darn rotors do I need?:)

    I have the #1 LA nozzles in start to with. Not sure what kind of pressure I am getting from the pump. I am going to put a gauge in when I change the interior plumbing. I know the rotor output is 45 psi or less as the are the PRS model rotors. I will play with the nozzles to get good coverage. I would think if I go up too high, I could be hitting the street from the planter:weightlifter:

    It may be something weird with the pictures but it seems like you have them too close together along the row, and then the rows are too far apart.

    I spaced them 25' apart along the row and the rows are probably about 30' apart...
