Good thank you. I will go ahead and make that change.

You're talking a difference of .2 GPM between an 8ft and an end strip.

Indeed not pretty. Especially the two number 8 ss clamps. But it's behind the shrub and almost hidden. But once my wife sees it I may have to redo. End strip might be better as I can install ground level. But the gpm may be high, I'll check. Thanks

In the days of brass nozzles, there were several water-straight-up patterns to be had. Really sloppy, but sometimes effective.

That's a site to see

An end strip turned down or a van barely open could have done the trick

I'll install drip shrubblers tapped off the nearest spray head on shrubs where it needs more water.. It over water's compared to the rest of the spray zone but it's nothing horrible. Or a couple rings of netafim

After more thought I decided to make my own modified head. And it works great. I took a 8 foot radius quarter circle head, put it on it's side, attached it to a riser and installed. Then reduced the flow to 75% (Toro head). The water flows upwards to the leaves and falls to the ground.

And I used all spare parts. Zero cost zero trips to Home Depot.

Adjustments needed

Hi everyone,

I installed a small system last Spring and it works great thanks to all here who helped me.

I planned to wait until the hot weather which is now to see if I have any underwatered areas.

In one flower bed on each end the larger (8 foot) bushes - Lillac and rose of sharon are underwatered. I can easily add a head on each end and I have ample gpm capacity remaining. I need to connect to a zone that has sprays, so I think I can install additional sprays only? And I guess just a 5 foot quarter circle spray?? Not sure what to do. Any ideas?
