Which One of You Yay-Hoos Installed This???

Ok, which one of you Yay-Hoos installed this beautiful piece of work??? Hosk? Was it you?

Had to pass this on. This is hilarious. It's even funnier because here in Oregon we never install anything above ground. No PVBs, No AVBs, and very rarely even an RP. Pretty much 99% of valves and backflow (DCVA) are all below ground. So to see a mess like this is even less common here than it might be in some of the warmer climates that some of you work in.

Just awesome though. I love the creative use of water source, valving and wiring. The wiring is especially trick! That's how I knew it must have been one of you "Pros" who did this fine work. It takes a certain level of skill to get this all right....

The use of galvanized gives it a nice touch.

This is the kind of "solution" I often run across when the homeowner is either an engineer... or a know-it-all DIY... or both.

Thanks for sharing.

Looks like they wanted to test it before they shipped it cross country.
