    I came across this today on someone elses install.

    Its like they couldn't get 1 1/4" under the side walk so they ran two smaller lines under?

    Does this equal the flow out as common sense says it would?

    Otherwise known as a large commerical landscape company in my area that will install an entire commercial lot for 10k :dizzy:

    These guys are notorious for crappy work and because they are the extreme area low ballers, they always get it.

    They did our walmart and were 60 days late, last I heard they are all wrapped up in a lawsuit because they owe WalMart 70k in late charges.

    I think the style of company is pretty similiar, I often wonder how companies like that survive.

    Does this company start with a D and end in 's? Sounds like their MO.

    Why don't you run it and see if it works or not? I can see loosing pressure but can't be enough to matter that much.

    Jon, it will work. Kinda like having a mini looped main. and if it has been working does it need to be cut out?
