True story....adjacent apartment complex to our largest hoa...
Drove by on saturday and noticed that a head was broken and valve likly stuck as water gushed down street and pooled...on return trip past 4 hours later same deal...got home called dad and discussed....he had already gone and discussed problem and offered to shut system off for free( HE LIVES NEAR THE COMPLEX)...
They told him to beat it as they had their own irrigation guy...
As it turned out, my brother later drove by without discussing with dad or me and asked them if they wanted him to shut off...same response...wtf?

It took their guy until Monday to shut it off.....

A year earlier,
I stopped at a hotel at 7pm at night to tell them their system had a stuck valve...beat it , we got our own guy...

My own dentist, same issue, stuck valve at 2pm, highly visible and illegal...he told me his guy was working on it and didn't want me to shut off...so it ran

A neighbor to our shop had timers that were on during the middle of day...his receptionist wouldn't let me reprogram the timer or talk to their boss.

Ima lawn guy and an irrigator...guess trying to be frieindly don't work...next time, I'll tell em it'll be 150 bucks emergency visits
