    Post deleted?? Maybe it has to be kept anonymous. Here is a pic of the head so it can be seen in relation to layout.[​IMG]

    And here is the area once again.....anonymously this time

    Rainbird 3500 series head. There is less than 6' from the head to the driveway edge! Makes for a great car wash.

    I think it's just because they are lowballers and don't care. The owner is licensed here in NJ which makes it even worse. It is all fed by a well which contains iron, so the paint jobs of any cars parked overnight will become etched from the water hitting them. They look like Sanford&Son pulling up to job....really a joke.

    I tried to tell her, to tell me when the hardscape guys were to come out, so I could move said rotor. Upon seeing this monstrosity, she actually was fine with the way it looked. #facepalm
