Sprinkler system

This sprinks--uh, springs--to mind 'cause we were just working with our sprinkler system--again.  Ever since we moved to our new house with its sprinkler system (our first ever), we've had different people working on the whole system (six zones) for various reasons at various times, and we just got zone 6 working again.  We all thought--and hoped--that it was a loose wire, and it was.  The guy was checking it out, and the wire fell into his hand.  A clue!  Zone 6 is on our big hill, and that area really needs water.  (We've been in a drought.)  Now we stand around and admire the rotating water as it waters the lawn, the trees--the sidewalk...

Here's hoping that there are no more sprinkler issues at your house!

Isn't water amazing and the methods we have of using it. Have fun watching the water rotate around you through your new sprinkler.

Dana, Thanks! As soon as we fix a rotor--a sprinkler that rotates, I understand--it will stop leaking. And a number of heads need adjusting--too much water or too little water, but at least we don't have that gusher behind the oak tree anymore...

Jenny, Thanks! Btw, birds sometimes enjoy showering in a sprinkler.
