Sign number 1...Def more than just a low head drainage..Most of our commercial systems run in the AM..Meaning that all this water around 11 am is very suspect..

Hey why not, more pics the better.

I mine as well post pic's from the leaking richidel (sp) valve that had no box around it.

I replaced with new 10 pgv valves, new manifold, new vb, new clock, rainsensor, and added 5 new zones... Funny how one leaking valve led to all that extra work.

around here people have just been fixing what NEEDS to be fixed.....no upgrades, or not as much than in the past.

no no no... i said more work, not money. fixing up pops house :weightlifter:

Had 5 zones (2 front and 3 back), now in addition to that it has 1 front bed zone, 3 back bed zones, and 1 zone to fill the pool up once a week for 10 min.

once I got into the system and saw how much I could improve, I went way overboard. Per my usual, I always go overboard. Still not 100% done though. Will get pics tomorrow....


BTW: lets see more pics from friday!

I'm assuming the valve will be replaced. Let's see the VB after that job.

pete- the RB dv was swapped..didn't touch the vb, and still made good chunk of change on that 1 hr stop.
