look carefully, this was an exercise in discipline.

the first step in preparing for sod was figuring out our water situation, we knew our water pressure was weak and inconsistent so we needed a plan to water the entire front yard effectively and consistently. ideally one would also test this plan before hand but we will get to that later...
i did some research and found good reviews for the davey water booster pump.
before installing the pump i measured the water pressure at the faucet outside and found it to fluctuate between 25 and 50 psi. the install of the pump was as easy as a little cpvc and teflon tape. weve been using the pump for a week now and we find that it quietly and consistely provides 60psi at the faucet.
