    Dug this one up today on a baseball infield. Pretty self-explanatory. :cry:

    You use the Rainbird Falcons?

    And what is that...two male adapters, two female adapters and two nipples when one nipple would have done? :)

    Or is that 4 threaded male adapters together? :laugh:

    At first Jon I thought you were nuts because that's a Hunter I-20 on the business end of the gobbledegook. Then I realized some of my nozzle boxes are showing in the background. LOL

    We use the Rain Bird Falcon high speed (6504?) sprinklers on all baseball and softball field infield dirt areas. These systems are installed (usually paid for by youth leagues or booster clubs) so the fields are easier to prepare and take care of. Picture of latest system attached.

    Actually (in order): 1 cheapo cut-off riser, 1 Marlex 90, 4 FIP x MIP extensions, 1 Marlex 90 and 1 FIP x MIP extension. Someone's idea of moving the sprinkler a little and raising it.
