    hey,

    who needs experience, education and a background in irrigation...just hire the 'lowest qualified contractor'.

    you gotta love this industry.

    I'll still vote the first picture as the worst, since it is 99.99 percent certain that it means there is no backflow protection for the system. Except for all the couplings, the (10:12) setup is not all that uncommon.

    Hey Brian - in post #8, if that is your tap out, it would not meet our code requirements. It can not have a hose bib before the PVB, or any BF. If for some reason it does, the threads where the hose can connect to it must be cut off
