Re: Sprinkler systems too much trouble?
Is it easier for to her to water manually or easier for her to have you water manually?
I installed my own system. I used the thicker piping. I installed drains in the system I put in but the back yard does not have drains to my knowledge (it might). I use a small compressor to blow them out. It's really no where near the same as having it professionally done but it does blow a little water out so I figure it can't hurt. I've never had the pipe crack from freezing. I did just break a head and the riser a couple of days ago when mowing but this was because I installed the head too high up. If a system is installed correctly it's very little maintenance.
