Last pic from that one and a new job. I guess if Leary doubled Lawn Genies this would be his style. Rare red Hydro rain valve.

How much for those clocks? seriously. I got a training wall going up and I'm trying to get every version ever.

Dana... do you still have that Febco clock?

I think I dumped it. Had too many POS timers sitting around taking up space. Sorry.

AHHHH Peter,

Scott ran across one of those at that church we take care of by the cemetery that you do.

By every head, it T's up like that. Due to the pipe only being inches in the ground, everytime a mower runs over it, they break. Not to mention those 5 acres are all on MP rotators, with heads that are set too high. Broken MP's all over the place. $$$

Definitely a theme now. This is why Texans should never attempt manifolds. Had to dig out the whole box to do a simple diaphragm repair.

They just need to be taught how to do them right. Everything can be done wrong, even a single valve in a 6" round.

From what I've seen....

Everything is done wrong in texas.

It's like the news DW. I only tell the bad stories. Nobody wants to hear a feel good irrigation story.

July 3rd buried valve in french drain also at an angle.

Not sure why all the valves are oddly turned these days. A hunter green bleed and the solenoid doesn't have its cover cap. We found that buried in the soil while digging. Somebody serviced this valve once and didn't clean up the wires or bother to box it.

I'm fireworked out. After fighting crowds for 15 years to get my daughter to fireworks shows I'm content to just visualize them in my easy chair.

Maybe somebody can post a good link for fireworks?
