I replaced these boxes about two months ago. They are not in a traffic area, the damage was done by the lawn crews over time. Much more traffic and the valves (3" Irritrol 100 3PS; very expensive) would have sustained damage, at least to the bonnet.

This is not unusual in S. FL and one of the reasons I don't glue in valves or gang valves on a manifold so I can't spin them out if I have to.

That's what Ric is talking about; S. Florida is not like any other part of the country.

Oh, the boots haven't incurred any damage yet since I was forced to get rid of the other ones because duct tape doesn't hold up well in the S. FL monsoon season.
