    I hate those, found backflows with the handles rusted off. Could get one of those mole guards...

    Here is one of my competitors.

    But I must admit not a serious competitor.
    He blew all this grass into the street, the driveway and sidewalks of the house he was mowing and the neighbors properties.
    He should have his lawn mower taken away from him and beat about the head with a mower blade!



    The next pic is how my company does it.

    Since we can't enlarge pics (like other sites) what's the manifold in the middle left?

    Is that a well point with a backflow?

    The backflow is improperly installed.
    Its not doing much good.

    Sneak over and grab a pic. Are you the fertiliizer guy or is it the HO?

    I'm the mower guy.


    The HO uses a local liquid company.
    Obviously NOT Tru Green.

    If I remember the next time I mow I'll grab a pic.
    I don't know who did the sprinkler set up, If I remember right he said the previous owner.
    Current HO plans on having it rebuilt spring 2012.
