We have plenty of water. Whoever coiled the 2" line up last did not properly drain it. When we turned on the irrigation. I was a little disappointed at the amount of water covering the patch. Then I looked to the right and saw the geyser. A couple of splices and 10 feet of pipe removed. We were back in business. We have three spigots with a 45' Radius each covering the 50' x 50' patch. We did a test run for 30 minutes and threw 600 gallons of water out. Which I am very happy with. I need to learn how to properly turn the fertigator off as I threw about 10 lbs of CalMag Fertilizer down also. It was not until the end when I filled a bucket we realized we had Blue water.
