    If it's a 1" meter, cool. Cappy has not told us the source yet.
    Tho Kiril & his new buddy will chime-in with their Sodium /Penethol
    equation shortly.

    20 zones is nothing. at least around my way volumes are a lot lower. we have a lot of accounts that just looking at it you would figure 10 or 11 zones, and because they won't go for the water service upgrade, end up being 20 zones only because you can only run 3 heads/zone.

    maybe it's the same in MASS.
