not an irrigation hack so much as a cable guy hack. I dont think that sch 80 plastic nipple is such a good grounding point.

At a job today in one of Sydney's water front (and one of the most expensive) suburbs. I heard one of the owners say she paid 10 mil for hers. It has small planter boxes outside some windows which are above the corners of bedrooms in lower apartments. I was asked to service it and when I turned on a station I had someone come running out saying there is water coming through his ceiling! After doing some investigations, this is what I found.

It goes from copper into dripline then back into copper to the next planter box. There is no PRV so it was leaking all over the place. I fixed this box but have requested permission to continue on and explain the situation as I had not quoted on doing this part.

I get nausea just looking at those clocks. The frustration with those knobs is unbearable.

You guys do realize there is a third controller up there, right?
Crappy system. Giving them an ultimatum. Upgrade, or please find another contractor. 26 zones, but maybe half of them are working. And the ones that work, don't work well. I think there is still one or two Flow Pros that are seeping.

Sounds like a cash cow to me. Maybe you are right ..... you aren't cut out for this line of work.
