grassman- the landscape construction company had jam packed the zone feed with rocks and dirt enough to choke a large horse...When I went to pressurize the zone there was so much flow and PSI it choked all the heads to the point to stay down...It was so bad it took a few trips to the main to get the valve to close..Kind of wild..

Needless to say the shop vac sucked all that sh!t out and the zone worked like a charm....


BTW can someone post the complete thread of shop vac guy?
