    My cell phone camera screen is cracked so the quality is bad.

    But basically this is a 2 part picture

    The picture with all of the crazy hoses is attached to a hose bib in the mix

    The second picture with the 2 pipe running up a wall ( It's hard to see cause of the sun ) is a AVB valve about 8' up in the air

    I laughed at this horrible point of connection install.

    Sorry for the horrible pic quality my camera phone screen cracked

    The pipe on the left is the service line leading to the house- some sort of blue poly ( didn't really look old so it may be that blue pex i've seen before)

    Notice you see the strap to hold the 2 tee's together??? lol
    Lets just poor some glue ontop of it .. it'll hold!

  7. Using rain for off was something I was never sure I liked. A few old controllers had that.

    Just what would an additional switch position for "off" do for a solid-state controller like that Lawn Genie?

    Nothing ..... They just renamed the "OFF" to "RAIN".

    I do like programmable "rain off", though.
