I'm a rebel with the boot shot

Irritation. There was a 2x10 board underneath the 2 layers of keystone. It's all good

I'm more worried about the grass. It WAS table top grade before I got to it.. lol

Hope they never decide to aerate the lawn on this one.
Mostly dirt in this area with loose rocks.
And this is work being done by a large "professional" irrigation company.
What happened to the state rules saying 6-8 inches of cover?
I guess they think it doesn't apply to them.

here is a head that was replaced by a "professional" contractor on a lawn that I mow. There are about 6 heads just like this along with 3 new valve boxes. I told the HO to call them back to correct them. The way they corrected them was they threw a shovel full of dirt around each one!
We have already had an understanding of its not a question IF they get hit with the mower, but when and that I will not be responsible for it!!

Sprinkus: I'm trying to understand the T, all the elbows, reduction bushings, & the reversal back in the other direction.

Looks like a tear down and rebuild.

What's wrong with it? You shouldn't be cutting that low.

They tied into the existing main to extend it to another area. Looks like they didn't have a 2" slip fix and used 90's instead.

when i worked for an "irrigation only" outfit i blamed 95% of my repair work on the lawnboys. (the other 5 i blamed on weather).

now that i work for a site management co (think trugreen/brickman) i can't do that anymore. Thankfully we're all commercial, so i don't have to explain to mrs. smith why her 15 year old pgp isn't rotating anymore.
