    How to save on material/labor and get the job. 20x60 area so 8 heads if done right. I remember bidding this system, didn't get the job (I wonder why). Guess what they have dry spots. Installer won't return calls, big surprise. Cha Ching

    Can't upload video too big. Imagine this, one PGP #9 nozzle in the middle of the 20x60

    Same site as above BTW

    You mean to tell me that one circular sprinkler won't cover a rectangular yard? *gasp* hope they learned their lesson about going with the cheapest bid.

    It's set to the side and middle of the 20' x 60' area set at half circle. Really nothing new in my area. He's out of business now so I'm cleaning up his "stuff", $$$$

    He plows his pipe in so I'm guessing the ground was dry and hard. Really not that tough soil at this site. I've seen this at many of his installs. Always dig veeewy carefully and "feel" for pipe around the head.

    I LOVE the lowest bidder and the newest guy in town. Smells like money.

    I am guessing the rest of that mess was junk and never used again given the look of the surrounding landscape.

    Was on a tune-up job today and saw this baby......I was working quickly anywhere around the tree. The creaking made me work faster. :angel:
