Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I couldnt understand where to connect the timer, and how exactly does the timer turn on the water

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the timer mechanics seem irrelevant ... set it and forget it. the placement of the sprinklers seems to be the key. and the coverage they provide.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1some sprinklers go tck tck tck in a full circle, some in a partial circle, some are fans that that cover a slice ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh ok, my teacher is really specific lols he would say where would you place the valves(which i dont know are) and he say ill take my buisness elsewhere

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok i guess my question would be i have a sprinkler that can go from 40 degrees to 360 degrees how many can a valve hold?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i would not know about the valve placement ... valves seem to be used so that you water sections at a time instead of the whole yard at once.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0These questions i could not find on google, or maybe i havent looked hard enough

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh i see so i would not need a valve?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you only have so much water pressure to deal with, and if you have to many open port heads, then your coverage sufferes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0HMM ok, how would i be able to make all the sprinklers go at once?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This sounds much better than sections

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but quite frankly, the requirements of your project are not something that i think we can generalize here. nor do i have any expertise on a most efficient setup. all i could do is offer some types for covering the lawn.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1depends on the timer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok sure, i have found a sprinkler than run 2638 feet and can rotate up to 40 degrees to 360 degrees

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I need help understanding how to get the corner of his fence without touching the fence

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in real life, we dont need to cover every part of the lawn, water will travel thru the root systems. and i dont know the physics behind an efficient placement. sometimes you have to hit a fence lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So not every square inch needs to be watered but just enough? How many sprinklers would you think someone would have in a house this size?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i wouldnt know that part ... maybe make up some squares that define coverage, and place them about the place to see whats possible.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1433107303300:dw the circle represents the area the actually gets wet the square could represent the area that gets enough water.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1placing squares is simpler than placing circles in my opinion
