I have a customer getting ready to start installing a large pond.
Be doing the math about volume and re-charge of the pond before you get
carried away with golf heads. The pump sizing will be have to be considered,
also.

I'm not the math guy, but I water about 16K sf with 6 gpm re-charge and almost 3k
of storage. It's a 24-7 deal waiting for re-charge & then another zone fires, gotta have
multiple programs or ISC. I'm pulling 20 gpm on some zones.

(and I might accuse you of over watering a bit if its quite that high Mike not much, but a bit )
When I'm sand-based, I lean on it. That's where the moisture probe gets it.

He was talking about putting in a fountain to keep the water aerated. [/QUOTE]

A "fountain" will not get it, but these bad boys will. www.otterbine.com

Your slipping Boots .... presenting a problem without knowing the solution. :nono:

-- 2.5" SCH 120 I.D. = 57.8 mm (O.D. - (2 x wall thickness))

Using the real I.D. and flow nomogram gives ~ 5 m/s flow velocity.

5 meters = 0.024854847689 furlongs
1 second = 8.2671957672e-7 fortnight

Flow velocity = 30064.42 furlongs/fortnight
Keep him occupied, maybe he won't have time to post soft core.

He's a poly guy, so you can't blame the glue.

But you get such swell fumes when you cut open a pressure-sealed 300 foot roll of the stuff.
