Good luck. i've always wanted to "winter work" in a southern climate. I'm just too much of a homebody. Plus i kind of enjoy snowplowing... and the whole Poly to PVC conversion.

That said, anybody who can provide some work in bermuda or costa rica (preferably with some golf privileges, I'm available Dec-April.

The opening post in this thread made me "hear" Frank Sinatra singing "My way" and then a few silly lines popped into my head. Feel free to add or change some lines and re-post it.

Many of the young-uns here won't have a clue about this, but here goes some funnin.

:: Try to picture Capt SR singing on youtube like Old Blue Eyes::


And now, the end is near;
And so I place the final rain curtain.
My friend, cold weathers here,
It's not a phaze, of which I'm certain.

Ive lived a life thats full.
Ive irrigated each and evry highway;
And more, much more than this,
I piped it my way.

Regrets, K-rain a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I pushed for nozzles of blue
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted trench;
Each careful rotar along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I piped it my way.

Yes, there were times, Im sure you knew
When I cut off more than I could glue.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I dug it up and ripped it out.
I PWN'd it all and I stood tall;
And piped it my way.

Ive loved, Ive laughed and cried.
A trench to fill, a hossman abusing.
And now, blow outs subside,
South for work, I go a cruising.

To think I dripped all that;
And may I say - not in a SHE way,
No, oh no not me,
I piped it my way.

For what is an irrigator, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To install the heads he truly feels;
And not the nozzles of one who kneels.
The record shows I dont buy at Lowes -
And piped it my way!

Septic jobs=cr@ppy job but someone has to do it.

Is this a repair from an irrigation install done a few weeks ago?

Take pictures, verify that indeed *it* flows downhill.

uploading pics right now..

boy the ground stunk like sheeeet..Speaking of such I had to drop my second deuce on this dudes property..

HAHA>.

good pics to come...much headaches had today...A little back round info..

Septic company came in and DEMOLISHED everything, except the wire and the feed from the well..Well he demolished the feeds...Most heads 600's and 570's were not dunzoed, but we had to flush out rocks dirt rinse repeat....It sucked.Worst part is that we had to keep reducing pipe sizes just to get water to certain feeds...It was a end of the season kind of day..We had fun...
The well is a 2 horse i belive on a relay..Being its not a V/S pump we had to tip toe through the steps so we wouldn't not blow the casing/pump....Needless to say there was much yelling and choice curse words to complement the loud talking.To make things better this was on a Richdell slider..
Septic repairs =the suck..

upping right now.
