    How about a 2008 thread for lame or good onsite photos?

    Yesterday, split copper call. then I opened the boxes. Upper right was the original. 3 RB Dvs, 2 for front and one drip. Other 4 valve manifold is for the back, Rainbird and Hunter valves, primer all over everything. Upper left valve is drip.

    Then the real nice one with a RB ESP outdoor controller in a 10" round box. This zone goes to the water feature, add at a later time. The 8 station controller in basement is of course full from the other zones. I asked H/O about an extension cord for this, and he looked confused. Then said he just occasionally opens by hand at the turn on thing (solenoid). Real nice set up.......

    A lot of these homes get front yard installed by builder, and the back gets added on later by another company of H/Os choice. Which is why it gets all hodge podged together.

    all i can say is wow! it is amazing what some people are willing to put into the ground. it really sucks that some people think it is ok to do it as well.

    I think this guy may have bought the house with this system in place already. Lovely, eh?

    that must be one of those home depot jobs, where you send in the layout of your yard and they send it back on how to install and design the job.
