Unfortunatly I think you'll get a lot of different answers to this. Are we talking about Mississippi or California? I'd guess the going rate in Ca. will double the rate in Miss. Also, different parts of Ca. will vary.....Newport Beach or Stockton. Then there are your reputable installers and the not-so-reputable, that underbid the former. We've seen the results of that in this forum! In Ca. I've never seen anything other than sched 40 pvc used, lately.

so let me rephrase, in north west texas how much would a quality sprinkler system be priced? by the head, by the zone or just some sort of other guess. i have heard that 95 for rotors and 55 for spray heads, what about drip? are these prices fair?

Drip is way too varied to have a pat answer for. Just get estimates, and if none of them suit you, don't buy. Consider letting the contracters quote prices, and you just say yes or no.
