My degree of trust in the valves is not the concern. As I said in my first post we change out the guts 99% of the time. But I Don't trust the landscapers Skid Steer steer or truck etc that does mechanical damage. They might pay for repair, but the time to redo it is Huge. Oh sure you have your valve in a safe place in fact so safe they are planting a tree beside it. What about Freeze heave??

Our Florida Sand is soft but it never freezes or shifts because of freezing. I have had the Nightmare of rebuilding manifolds so I always designed them a little more spread out. I never liked to run a main line and spread the Valve out all over the yard where they where hard to find even with my 521 or a clicker.

Sorry I don't agree with your work or your Liberal politics.

it is one thing to do a off label applications. It is total stupidity to post it on the world wide web and expect people to approve.
