You can always delete the photos, and add a boot shot, or even some onion rings.

And who pays for you deciding to do extra work by splitting up manifolds into separate valve boxes?
i agree, i have a few manifolds that are easy to repair that are threaded and ihave made jsut a select few myself with that in mind!!

who pays, the customer of course. ihave to cut it apart anyhow, it is easier and makes more sense to split it up a bit and put in separate boxes! duH!

i have never had a customer think that was a "bad" idea, they are always thankful when i expalin it to them(if they are there)

Piker winterizing with a dinky compressor. Remove the end riser's nozzle to speed up the operation.

On some systems I will remove the last nozzle on the zone. Primarily zones that are on the narrow parkway strip between the sidewalk and street. A lot of these heads tend to be 5', 8', or 10' nozzles. And they take quite a while to allow the water through due to gpm design. So removing the last nozzle speeds up operation.

I'm too lazy to do it unless it really saves time. Usually you can just push down a popup head and let the flow-by do the work.

I actually thought about doing just that very thing before I figured to use the outside hose bibb pumping air through the inside copper system. But, I didn't want to muck up their hot water supply. Plus, with my luck the drain valve would probably leak after I touched it!
