Re: Sprinkler systems too much trouble?
I tend to agree with your wife. The house I live in now has one that is a few years old, and it is a maintenance headache. In fact, I've discontinued use of it. The situation might be different if I had installed it myself. I you do install one, I highly recommend that you make a detailed map of the installation and maybe take pictures as it is being put in. Also be sure to keep detailed records of the parts and valves used. Some other things to think about are being sure that there is an easily reachable manual valve shutoff valve and that sprinkler heads, valves, etc. are not placed too close to streets, driveways, etc. where cars might park on them. Whoever put my system in did not do that.
