    Wondered about that myself. Strainer at the bottom of those I-2os I believe.

    I'd rather it get to the nozzle, so the crew can spot it and clean it when they're doing the walk-thru. I've never used filters on spray heads, and had the guys keep a close eye out on the gear drives, especially Stream-Rotors, which have a very cool filter basket. Again, it's visual; the crew ( mostly the owner) has to pay attention to the operating performance of the system.

    So what do you clowns employ to cover plantings when you have to maximize coverage on low pressure? On your best day you won't do better than to use maxipaws.

    Some of us re-zone and use sprays or Stream Rotors. I've seen tree and shrub bark torn to pieces by impacts. :hammerhead:

    It's pond water, chuckles - no drip - no high pressure pumps - no head-to-head spacing

    you don't get the job on account of the nice people have a budget

    I did, you must have a different market; or attitude? :dizzy: i got a ton of re-do jobs because I SOLD it! Boiler plate specs, meeting with the clients, explaining what we were doing, our warranty. 90% of those clients are still ours 30 years later. :clapping:
