Are you refering to Jess Stryker's site? It is an all inclusive tutorial on sprinklers from A to Z. I dont remember the URL right now but I bet you could find it by doing a google search on Jess Stryker.

Jess Stryker's Tutorial is a good first step. But to really get a perfect understanding, I highly recommend Rainbird's "Landscape Irrigation Design Manual" and also RB's "Low-Volume Irrigation Design Manual".

They are both very cheap. $10 for the first one and $5 for the second. But I think you can download either book for free somewhere on the RB website.

The second book goes into a little TOO much detail, if you ask me. But it's definitely worth reading. The first book, however, is one of the best I've ever read. Taught me a great deal more than the Jess Stryker tutorial did.
