One of our high schools wants a large (1-1/2") QCV installed on their varsity softball field in the area behind the pitcher's plate "like the Frosh and JV fields have" so they can water down the entire skinned playing area for games and practices without having to drag a hose (as was originally designed and installed by contractor when school was under construction). Problem is that the other two fields were constructed after the fact because they originally were to be located in a different area of the athletic fields. We had a semi-manifold POC to come off of in that install and had a 3" supply line (off the 8" main line) that provides plenty of water and pressure. Those QCVs work like a charm with a 1-1/2" impact sprinkler pounding away and wetting down the skinned areas in no time at all. We were told that a "supply already exists by the third base dugout" and the site figured it would just be a matter of tieing into the existing 1" QCV's supply and running a line about 75' to install the new QCV. Ha!!!! The supply is 1" all the way back to the main line and a 1" QCV will not adequately work to cover the entire skinned infield. Boss told me to CAD it up as a new project tieing into the 8" main line and to get an estimate together. Course... I want to do it right and not install just a 1-1/2" spur off an 8" main line so I drew it up running a 4" line 60' to the field's fence line that will be teed and capped for future needs. Then we'll run a 2" line all the way to the pitcher's plate and reduce at the 1-1/2" swing joint we'll be installing for the QCV. I came up with a materials estimate of $1,175.00 to do it all up correctly and can't wait for the school to choke on it. Course... the boss may eat part of it since we'll be installing the 4" spur to better allow us to change things in the area of the diamond in the future as they put more garbage in.
