Went back to the cemetery today to see what damage they incurred during last week's lightning event. They had said that one of the ICC's was blown off the wall - not so, neither one damaged in the least. Rainsensors both OK, PSR-B-s both okay. Start running zones, oops 2 in a row on same controller have blown solenoids. And one of the pumps has blown its discharge piping completely off, must have been deadheading on the fried solenoids.

Replaced solenoids, ran and got galvanized parts and repiped both pumps all the way to the 1st horizontal turn underground. Installed check valves on each discharge side to keep them from pumping against each other with PRV's downstream of checks.

Everything looks good, I go sleeve a light commercial we have coming up and finally head home about 6PM, stopping to pick up the mail on the way. Get home, open mail, find payment for insurance co.'s portion of cemetery repair.
I ONLY INVOICED CEMETERY LAST TUESDAY, they have yet to pay, but insurance $$$ are here.

Going fishing the rest of the week.:cool2:

Right in the middle of Fay? At least you'll get some rain out of this. I think.

Great illustration of the relationship between you and Fay.
If I remember right, a few weeks ago you posted about how to charge for this huge cemetary job. What did you ever decide?

Original invoice was for $10,143, but has now grown after today's little episode.

If only the air from Fay could be harnessed to winterize all northern irrigation systems........

Nice cross threading! At $ 125.00 & up for winterize, I detect a note of jealousy.

I'm only jealous of the fact you get to travel your twinkie in warm southern weather without working all day.

How long does the average winterizing take?

How long does the average winterizing take?

5 minutes and up, depending on zone and volume and inlet size. the average 12 zone system takes less than half an hour.

Not with us, we walk thru the system with the remote and look at every
head. We like winter work.:)
