    for an install coming up, the homeowner is going to truck in water from his farm pond. Two 2500 gallon tanks.

    Also a pic for you manifold guys... a VERY nice 8mil+ house we're just starting, this is the previous irrigation system... no backflow or anything, if you notice they cut the main water line for the home put in a check valve (thank god) and put the valves in.

    how you like the backflow? its the little brass thing there... of course it's been leaking the whole time too. We're going to guy off the water tomorrow and cap that bad boy.

    no I think we call them check valves usually, but it's being used as a backflow here.... that 1" line you see is tee'd off from the house's drinking water... YUCK!
