    And the bank account to hold you over as the commercial folks will delay paying you 90 days or more.

    "Do not use parts from Home Depot or Lowes, even if they are made by commercial companies. Most companies (K-rain and Rainbird etc) have two lines, and their cheap line goes to the home hardware stores. These are garbage. The same goes for anything that Orbit makes."

    personally i`ve never had any problems with RainBird stuff no matter where it came from...but you are right on the money about Orbit...my customers ask me about them and i tell them no way, i only recommend RainBird stuff.

    Stupid question, but I have always wondered. Are the RB5000 series rotors found at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. worse quality than the RB5000 series you would find at a pro supply house?

    Since only the pro supply house stuff gets sold with an over-the-counter replacement guarantee, the question never arises.
