    As the book jacket states, this is a GUIDE to planning and installing Lawn Sprinklers. Key word is GUIDE. It's a great introduction and overview of the process. It is not a DIY how-to manual as it does not get into every small detail of how to do a full install. Those details likely will vary some with each manufacturers system anyway.

    All of the information covered was basic 101 irrigation. I was hoping for a guide that would provide more information on planning and design. Getting the pipe sizing correct and choosing the right sprinkler or nozzle. Statements such as " Your best bet is to take the plans to a qualified irrigation dealer, who can tell you which size pipe to use" (pg 87) is worthless info.

    It is a highly descriptive, waterproof resistant, on sprinklers. However I was looking on information on water drip systems that connect to a hose connection. There was literately nothing on that type of watering system. Since I did not want the more complicated systems, this book was useless to me. Still, I had to rate in highly because it was well done.

    This is a great book if you've never worked with a sprinkler system and dont even understand how it works or how to go about designing one. This will give you a good basic understanding of how a sprinkler system works but only in the abstract. The problem I found when trying to use this book for instructions on even minor repair work-- (i.e. replacing an anti-siphon valve or a section of pvc pipe or even how to work with pvc) is that it completely lacks any practical hands on step by step instructions or recommendations about how to work with the materials or how to install properly and to code. I've watched people work on sprinkler systems before and wanted to give it a try by replacing an entire section of leaky valve fittings and a broken valve, but I found more information by going online to how-to websites and just looking at the parts and fittings at my local hardware store to figure out how it all assembled like a puzzle. It seems like a well written book but isn't a good buy for the Do-it-yourselfer looking for an instruction manual to get right in there and work with outdoor plumbing.

    This was a good book to review but for a DIYer it makes some things seem more complicated than necessary.

    I'm happy with the service, especially the package and the protection of this item. The material of this book are good, especially if you are on the beggining. I will recommend to my friends.

    thought this would have something about how the timer worked on Orbit Irrrigation System for setting Timer setting but it doesn't
