    Currently on a trip to Disney and I can’t help notice the irrigation in the parks and at my resort

    30 rotors in 1 zone
    2 zones running at 1 time with phenomenal pressure it’s a true sight of magic haha
    Anyone else go on vacation and look at these things ? Apparently the parks have over 16K controllers and over 10K valves on one of the biggest centrally controllers systems in the world

    Yes, I look at those aspects all the time but most of the time they are not in operation during daytime hours.

    They’re also running huge pipes.
    Are you sure they’re all running on the same zone or there’s just a lot of valve in heads running?
    The last time I read up on them they were using maxicom and Valve is in heads... dunno if they upgraded in the last 11 years or so.

    Not sure ya know I’m just here on vacation lol
    But yea I read the same thing the maxicom system but it could be two seperate zones but either way 30 heads a zone is great pressure I’m sure there mainline is huge and there pump systems are intense I would love to get behind the scenes but we know that won’t happen haha
