I like the way that you added one hose that can be moved to either of 3 wheels depending on use of that wheel. Drilling the holes in the front works fine if you have sufficient water pressure to get the water to the wheel face. I may have to abandon my gravity feed and go to an aquarium pump to do something similar.
Thanks. It may not be obvious, but the moveable irrigator is adjustable for water flow.There is a short piece of tubing sticking through the hole that actually carries the water to somewhere close to the top of the wheel. The little pump I'm using I got from Amazon and it flows only 80gph and cost a tad over $8. It seems to pump plenty of water.

I chose to drill the small holes on the front of the unit rather than remove the plumbing from the top of the housing because I wanted to keep it as original as possible. I could remove the extra wheels and rivet a plate over the holes and it would be back to stock. People usually mark their grits there anyway.

Gorgeous stone!
After that long dry summer... it seems we're getting weather in unusually distinct seasons this year. Hopefully it'll reveal good rock and leave your orchard alone this time around.
