    Imagine this scenario.

    You have a water source that provides 80 GPM at 100 PSI. It is centrally located between two sections of turf that are roughly 20' wide and 2000' long. (Picture roadside green belt)

    How would you design this. How many zones? What size Pipe? I know how I would (and I've done it), just curious how others would tackle this.

    If you were really bored, you'd have created a scale drawing of the job.

    Bored is not synonymous with not busy.

    Didn't we do this already once? Seems like we kicked this one around a while back. Don't feel like doing it again tonight. Can't believe I haven't been off line for a full 24 hours and there are almost two pages of unread threads.

    I'll RainCAD it later this weekend and get back with you. Is there a design fee accompanying your finders fee??? :)

    Where's the POC... end or middle of the 2000'???

    High wind? Soil type? Amount of Sun? Slope? Programming requirements?

    Sounds like a commercial property we maintain....It has a 3" main with 11 zones of all spray heads..Just received a work order to replace 140+ sprayheads...Still waiting on my Rain Master Remote before I start this one...
