We just wanted to pass along our congratulations to Rain Bird for winning the Sweepstakes Trophy at the Tournament of Roses Parade. Their float, "Mountaintop Majesty," featured a family of mountain gorillas in a setting inspired by the Virunga National Forest in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In keeping with the company's products and philosophy, the float included over 13,000 gallons of water used for waterfalls and mist. This marks the third year in a row that Rain Bird has won this trophy, which honors the most beautiful entry in the parade.
Check out this video preview from before the parade.
No More Geysers (NMG) is a sprinkler riser with an internal shut-off valve. When a sprinkler head breaks off, NMG automatically shuts off the water at the break. NMG stops the “lawn geysers” we have all seen; so it conserves water by avoiding water loss when a sprinkler head gets broken off, and it lowers the risk of property damage and liability caused by water flowing out of the sprinkler system.
