That is definitely in order, after I go educate and argue with an HOA board about the condition and overall poor design and install of their system. 1" tap and RP, and some zones have 35-45 spray heads at the farthest end of the system. With the 12' and 15' nozzles installed they should be between 45-65 GPM, depending on the zone. Hmmmm.... no wonder the heads don't pop up. No wonder the grass was brown last year with our hottest, driest, windiest spring/summer ever. Too many hands in the cookie jar for the install. As homes get built, new contractors/builders add onto the system at free will. We just took it over last spring. Drip zones long turned off and nobody informed about, rain sensor under a tree, cracked filters on the drip valve assemblies, rotors and sprays mixed together, and they bad mouth me and the lawn company.

Pfffftttt.......

I saw that too. We are back to normal conditions, instead of last year's heat wave.

Oh yes, first email of the day.

"Dana
We had a pipe from the sprinkler system burst outside the house yesterday afternoon.

It filled the window well and leaked 40-50 gallons into the basement.

Can you send a guy over to repair the pipe or manifold today or tomorrow?
Do you do those repairs or do we need to call a plumber?

Well, looks like another shot 2 days of work. Top photo is from my house looking out.
Added a few photos for the heck of it from a camping trip part way up Pikes Peak two weekends ago. Snowed overnight then too. No tent for me, hammock camping is comfy.
