    Sign number 1...Def more than just a low head drainage..Most of our commercial systems run in the AM..Meaning that all this water around 11 am is very suspect..

    Hey why not, more pics the better.

    I mine as well post pic's from the leaking richidel (sp) valve that had no box around it.

    I replaced with new 10 pgv valves, new manifold, new vb, new clock, rainsensor, and added 5 new zones... Funny how one leaking valve led to all that extra work.

    no no no... i said more work, not money. fixing up pops house :weightlifter:

    Had 5 zones (2 front and 3 back), now in addition to that it has 1 front bed zone, 3 back bed zones, and 1 zone to fill the pool up once a week for 10 min.

    once I got into the system and saw how much I could improve, I went way overboard. Per my usual, I always go overboard. Still not 100% done though. Will get pics tomorrow....


    BTW: lets see more pics from friday!

  9. I'm assuming the valve will be replaced. Let's see the VB after that job.
