    The gpm and radius feet it covers is just fantastic!

    I mean you can't beat it..

    mp 2000 @ 45 pounds gets 20 feet @ a 180'...Mi amore!!!

    Just remarkable...I am redoing my folks front yard. Thought I would have to upgrade to 3 valves from 2. Looks like I might not have to with the mp 2000....Also thinking about putting 1812 spray bodies around the driveway and road...I know they work great together..Anyone care to weigh in on those for 12' inch bodies for turf? Should I use the 6' insead?

    I feel like using the 1812 RB cause of the extra throw I'll get..Seems like a little extra work but the extra throw might be worth it...

    Anyone care to take a guess @ how extra a mp 2000 @ 40 psi will throw with on a 1812?

    I am thinking about spacing the 2000 about 17-19 feet apart on the larger spray body...

    well now I'm tired..

    I would not put a 1812 if its just turf. A 1806 would be the tallest i I would do

    No need to guess, and not enough to make any significant difference. Use the 4 or 6", if not for the only reason that 12" pops would look silly in turf.

    I like 12 inch pops in turf.. well in my yard I do @ least. I wouldn't put them on a customers property..

    Somehow something tells me that extra rise is getting me a little more feet on a 360....But thats just my preference....

    pics to come today and possibly a manifold install video.....

    HeyeddieI can see where you are trying to go with the 12"popups. kinda a cool artistic thing. Make sure you get each one perfectly level. If a 12" gets slightly off it looks dorky when spraying at an angle. Low voltage lighting perfectly placed really accentuates the stream effect of the MP.

    If you got the time and inclination I say go for it. Play some Willie Nelson for sound effect since He is the King of the Fourth of July concerts.
