    The 2000 flavor would be my choice.

    Yup, what's the low water deal, a well? I like 35psi to 50 for those little dears,
    with 50 my choice. Remember, a run time of a hour or more is normal 'cause
    of the low precip. rate; you may need a delay in between zones and/or
    multiple start times.

    We use them all. Corners leave something to desire. 100s are okay just don't stretch

    i dont think its troubles, just that those run times are going to take a while..

    I think the 2000 @ 40 psi throws 20 or so with .5 gph or close to that..
