So here are some start up pictures. On the picture with the PVB. The old PVB failed inspection, the system had a major issue with water hammer inside of the house. So I installed a brand new PVB, plumbed it into a master valve and a water hammer arrestor. Cut out the concrete and replumbed it and wired the master valve into the rest of the system. So everything you see above ground was brand new done by me. And I must say, the water hammer issue, and the right steps to correct it, was one of the more perplexing issues I've dealt with so far in irrigation. Water hammer is actually some pretty tricky stuff it turns out. Anyways, enjoy...

Some more pics, on the picture of the wooden fenced in backyard. I installed irrigation, landscape, and the lawn at this house last fall. Just fired up the system and cut it for the first time of the season. I'm pretty satisfied with the return on grass. Anyways...

I use it quite a bit still, mainly use it on the crap yards and open lawns. But I like the Walker for all the high end stuff.


Woke up this morning and got back into town, and found out my day was shot. Coulda slept in

Cool, yeah the walker kinda gives a little more manicured look that a lot of the higher end ones want, and I would have kept sleeping also.
