    I've decided the Detroit Lions are going to be my second to favorite team this year.

    If you don't know the brand of poly you installed, that's a problem right there.

    What does that have to do with the Detroit Lions?

    Round here they single clamp .

    To each their own , I prefer PVC , have had great results from it for 25 years
    I personally have no reason to change , there is no benifit to my business or customers.

    I cant be doing it wrong ,or using the wrong poly . since I dont use poly , I use PVC . Around here they use the poly rated for 100 psi , it has problems on the higher pressure houses , this is a good thing , I am the company who solves their problem , not the company that created it . We are about 80% service , the more problems with sprinklers simply means more service work .
    I realy dont care what type of pipe, heads , valves or controller I repair . I love to meet a new customer who has a poorly designed or installed sprinkler system it just means more service work , plain and simple.

    In any PVC area, I would have doubts on the supply houses stocking good poly pipe. In poly land, the standard utility-grade stuff is utterly trustworthy, because only good material will continue being sold in truckloads to the same suppliers.
