I said no way and told him to watch out because that price was way too low.

So today i was there blowing it out and it was my first time back since i gave my price and I got to see what this clown did. I look down on the hill and see he ran 2 lines on drip in a 4' bed of pure sand; no valve box; never wired the valves; manifold not connected to the main. I don't even think it will work when I straighten it out n the spring. The way the guy fed the drip I don't think it will make it to the end. You get what you pay for I guess.






Did you ever get to fix this job? Hope you charged at least what you originally quoted!

Why all the different brands? Were you doing some comparison?

I was back earlier this spring, it was still a mess. I haven't been told to fix it yet.

Exactly, I wanted to do a test to find out the differences in how fast/hard each valve would close.

Lost interest before i finished, maybe I'll continue during the inevitable boredom of this coming winter season.

Changing a PGP to a 5500, pretty nice to find the schedule 80 swing joint but I also found an unusual piping configuration, it was just garbage left in the hole.
Dug further and found an old Super 700 in the hole.
Dug a little more and found an old PGP.
Dug a bit more and found a green poly nipple.
Exposed the pipe at the swing joint and found that the swing joint was glued to a street ell, which was threaded into a female adapter, ugh!
