    Man, you guys aren't very flattering. I thought you would like my Daisy Duke look.

    I bet you don't even have any appreciation for my matching tool bag.

    I can put PVC cutters, glue and primer in there and whip out my tool in a moments notice.

    Darn irrigation pro's have no respect for Joe Homeowner.

    That actually brings up a thought I've had before. I used to do concrete work and always wore a nailbag.

    I've wondered about modifying my nailbag to be able to hold a pair of cutters, a can of glue and perhaps some swing pipe fittings. Does anyone do this? Right now I just carry around a plastic tool tote.

    We've tried the tool belt thingy without much success. Not enough room in them. However, an "earth friendly" (canvas) shopping bag works wonders. Roomy. :)

    Plastic tote for parts, canvas bag for tools.

    My dog saw that picture and went in the backyard to wash his mouth out

    Yep 6 years to late.

    I no longer have grass - it's all concrete and I found an on-line source for green donuts made of carpeting.

    Anyone want me to re-post that photo again? I still have it.

    But, to be serious... I discovered I only needed 4 donuts for the sprinkler heads along the driveway

    Good choice, you can get into some things you don't want to.

    But I have to wonder why you need donuts if the head is installed at the proper height? Are you cutting your grass that low?

    Realized this was an old thread.
