some old guy tried to say I didn't drain his bf and his copper pipe broke...BUT i did drain it.. my boss will not lose a customer on this one and will always blame the service tech....

eh...
This spring we started using the ball valves that have the eyes to pad lock them either open or closed. This season we will lock them closed with the steel zip ties they use on shipping containers/trucks. They have a serial number which we will record the last 4 digits on service order.

Oh I wasn't aware you had knowledge of every compressor out there. I'm glad to know that every compressor out there has a regulator. Thanks!

Also I'm not pulling the tops off of sensors lol we have 5k winterizing clients.. have fun loosing them or relying on the customer to remember where they put them.

I think I do have a video on there or 2 1 of a manifold being built for my old boss..

I think they were irritrol valves and toro manifold T's....

The old guy in my video is still doing irrigation for his kids now(who he taught).

I don't remember any GD tunes during the video.
