A few weeks ago I asked about lengths of funny pipe on remodeling a zone. Through maturation, my yard has moved a little and Zone 5 was inefficient at best. I originally was only going to move the sprinklers that had "moved" from the edge of the lawn to well inside the lawn. Then I turned the zone on and watched the sprinklers that were not originally going to be moved water a huge turnout area of our driveway. After debating with Kiril on the focus of water conversation, it burned to watch the water land on the drive, even though we're on a well and not writing a check. So, in the spirit of thinking globally and acting locally, I decided to reposition a few more heads, add one, and quit watering rocks. Total investment = about $20 in new parts (an MP-3000, a PGP, and a hand full of fittings), about $10 worth of stuff out of my supply box (another handful of fittings, a 6" riser, some marlex and some funny pipe) and about 6 hours in the 100 degree weather. The time would have been a lot less if I had remembered that I stepped down to 3/4 inch pipe on part of the zone because of distance from the main and known that compression tees don't work on Class 200 pipe. Both brain farts cost me a trip to town each, which is 14 miles each way. But now I've got a warm fuzzy feeling when I watch the zone run without dropping any water on the turnout. Unlike a normal city dweller, it will take me years to realize the payoff from not watering the drive, but the warm fuzzy has to be worth something. Kiril, I'm not ready to add a zone for the foundation plantings, nor am I willing to let my grass get to the edge of dying before I water it, but your evangelical approach to water conversation did make a dent - albeit a small one. And for Rotar, I gave the blue PGP nozzles another try. I like the really small ones. I replaced a bunch of red 5's, 6's and 7's with blue 1.5's, 2.0's, and 2.5's. I still like the big reds better than the big blues. In the middle, I just can't tell much difference, with the reds getting a slightly more favorable nod. All-in-all it was a kind of laid back Saturday of system tweaking with a couple of minor headaches. I developed a true appreciation for my new SRR remote. It made nozzle swapping completely painless. Every time I thought the heat was going to get to me, I would just walk face first into one of my #9 or #10 PGP's. And you guys get to do this EVERY DAY and GET PAID! Geez I'm jealous.
