View Full Version : Hall of Shame contribution

This is from one of my regular maintenance accounts. System was self-installed by the previous homeowner and really needs to be pulled out and started over but it's not in the budget so we milk it along as best we can. When I first started working this one, I had to replace 2 AVB's that were left pressurized 24x7 with PVB's (never took pictures of that). The valve wires on them were just hanging loose. Anyway, here's one of my favorite parts of the site. Popups on the left side, watering the grass on the right side.

Who says there's a water shortage?

Saw this one the other day. Pipe on the ground in a grid work with sprays, rotors, and impacts. I don't think it was glued because it was in multiple sections.

I didn't leave my card.

Here's one my tech just sent me over the phone. 1" Febco 765 PVB. 3 poppets inside. Or, one full poppet, and two bottom halves that were broken, and layered beneath the top one. Hmm..... think that might limit the flow at all. And on top of the canopy written in marker, said "Do Not Touch"

Who knew that Febco had a tri-poppet model? :)

That's a "Take-a-Poppet/Leave-a-Poppet" dispenser model.

Makes winterizing a simple matter of just picking up the pipe and let it all drain out. Or just gather it all and store it in the garage.
