4 1804's buried and connected as pairs
Sounds like the,"I paid a guy to put in a sprinkler system right before I went on vacation and I came back and it doesn't work." And then you find out theres no pipes or wiring

This one is so stupid it makes me laugh mainly because the standard box is 4" above grade. Don't ask me about what the other valve, or what it does, why it isn't, etc. . .

Nice boot shot. Next time open-up the white sleeve, we MUST know what's in there!

SVC predates NODE, but as far as I know they are identical.
