Re: watering


> Can you adjust the amount of spray?
Being an inexpensive kit, no, not right out of the box. But they offer extra
parts at a reasonable price, cheap shipping.  So I ordered the caps that
allow the emitters to be changed from 360 to 180, which is important to me.
At this point I don't see a need for finer tuning than that.

> Can you adjust the amount of spray?
The single system is designed for low pressure.  Increasing the pressure can
increase the distance of the spray, but also by twisting the tops of the
emitters, you can change the reach of the spray.  I plant to experiment with
connecting a number of units to see how many can be operated at the same
time while still getting the reach I need.

The sprayers can be at soil level or higher with the use of risers.
Depending on the particular situation, I could choose either of these or, if
there's still something not reached I wonder if I could add drip lines where
needed.  Can you run drips and sprays on the same line?
