    I have a

    Hunter 12 sta. ICC controller

    1" Febco 825 RP

    Fertigator fertilizer injector that no longer works

    Mixture of Richdel 205 valves, Rainbird valves and Hunter valves.

    My front yard has MP rotators and my back has Toro 570's pop ups,

    I have some Netafim sub surface drip tubing and Rainbird Xeribug pressure compensating emitters for my shrubs and ground cover.

    I have Toro spider bubblers in my flower beds and pots.

    I have an Acclima water management system along with a Fertile earth injector waiting to be installed.

    All this on a 7-K lot with about 2-K covered with house, deck and driveway so about 5-K landscaped.

    100' garden hose with a Melnor wave sprinkler. (Hell I can't afford one of those dang sprinkler systems) Actually it is a rental and the landlord isn't ready to spring for the irrigation system. He does all the mowing in the season and blows the driveway and walks .
