    Nice little article on the San Antonio Water system in the latest Turf Magazine. The thing that caught my eye was requiring swing joints on all sprinkler heads. Seems like a no brainer but that is a radical change here in Texas. Unfortunately they will be done with giggle pipe or hunter sj. Maybe Purp should specialize in swing joint consulting when he retires.

    As far as I'm concerned, all the real professionals have been using swing joints for the past 10 years.

    Guess it is time for me to retire. We've been using them for 25+ years. :)

    About five years ago I handed one of our swing joints to a "consultant" out of Clovis and he asked, "What's this?" :dizzy:
