    The extra marlex ells sometimes make it possible to add a taller replacement head in rocky soil, and save digging time.

    Found this beauty yesterday. Apparently the driveway and the new pan were installed about three years ago. Which means....... this drip pipe has been like this for three years. Going back for about three hours of repairs for this and other issues. Raising heads, lowering heads, etc.

    This is one of my favorites. I had to return here yesterday for wiring issues. I may have finally convinced her to let me replace with one controller. She has the four controllers because she needed a 30 minute delay between zones. So there would be nothing wired to the even number valves, but a 30 minute run time was set. I've tried talking her into it for years now.

    Someone please check Mike Leary's pulse. I bet he passes out when he sees this.

    Someone was too lazy to dig down a few more inches and tie into the pipe correctly:
