Melody<br>rental - yeah - hadn't thought of that. I'm sure a 4hr time
frame would do<br>it and shouldn't be too expensive. Less than replacing
lines damaged from<br>freezing water. AND I wouldn't have to store yet
another thing that is only<br>used once a year.

it. If you<br>> don't know someone, I'm sure you could get it at a local

Well, my sistem is in but we've had plenty of rain so far, so I
won't<br>> know<br>how well it works for awhile. I toyed with the idea
of taking it<br>> in during<br>winter, but it took me most of a day to
lay it and if I had<br>> to relay it next<br>yr, it would be a nightmare
trying to get it the<br>> same. So it will stay down<br>and hopefully I
can get the lines blown<br>> for the winter. I almost bought a<br>small
air compressor for the job,<br>> but all I can find are ones that
are<br>powered via the cigarette<br>> lighter port of a car. That's not
workable<br>> for<br>me.<br><br>Kitty<br><br>----- Original Message
