Speaking of mike, he's incommunicado due to an accident that put the Mac out of commission. Been quiet huh.

Many happy returns to the mayor of Cactus Hug. We'll let him rest up.

A lateral break in a new play area

I couldn't find the flow of water anywhere I dug in here!

Busted out the accoustical and found it blind

First place you always look in a case like this is wherever they were digging (i.e. swing set legs), no equipment needed.

Exactly. Swing sets, fence posts, newly planted trees and shrubs, drain pipes, home for sale signs. I have a customer who puts a hockey rink in the back yard every season, and they hit the PVC laterals about 2 out of every 3 years for about 10-12 years now.

Good point.. Fence installations that would be a no brainer . I guess not for playsets for me .. I can't recall a playset issue having a broken pipe around the post it's always been near the border . I haven't exp that one yet.

Actually this playset was installed last year and this was a new homeowner. I could just tell it looked new. The zone worked adequately it just didn't have the same ' umf ' as the rest of the zones.. The gpm was 2x the amount as it should have been. When I dug up the 1 head that was inside the bark there was 4" of standing water everywhere. I almost passed this issue by myself.. But I was curious why the zone just didn't look the same compared to the others with the near same design. so I'm sure many others would say ' looks good to me ' and not notice the issue
