    why would you need a sprinkler system for a scrappy small strip of lawn?

    How did you build the hose bib attachment.

    Wait, does he have to leave his water valve open 24/7 doing it this way? Or does the timer shut that off so that the water stops running? If anyone knows please let me know! Because if that's the case you're better off just watering your yard with a hose!

    First of all you don't need sprinklers to water that amount of grass and the sprinklers need the pipe deeper this is not the right way to do this.

    The best part of this video is when Kevin slams the shovel on to the pipe they just layed.

    So then what happened to the water flow test? 30 sec to fill the 5 gallon bucket.

    Poly cutters need to be sharpened bud! Also, no heat needed to put fittings in, just need a mallet.

    wtf…. That spray pattern at the end. Meh. Good tutorial though.

    I used to like these shows when they used to tell you everything needed to accomplish. Now, they just buzz over details that a DIYer needs to know to be successful. Its as if they are covering the information for those that already know the key choices. Like, why did he use 6" risers instead of 4". Why 1" pipe for three heads? How to adjust the heads…..stuff a person knows and learns from other, more complete instructional videos.

    Austin is so strict on water this would get shut down so fast

  • Service Technician 1 year ago

    please don't install irrigation like this. heating poly or funny pipe ruins the integrity of it
