    Back to irrigation

    Been working on a project lately that has been quite a challenge. I was called in to fix somebody's mess. It is an entrance to a new development consisting of 29 zones on a Hunter ICC with a 3/4 mile run of multi strand off the golf course water with a PRV. When I arrived only the 1st 15 zones worked, the rest didnt have continuity. A quick overview of the site showed that I had my work cut out. Multi was sticking out of the ground everywhere just cut and chopped up. Got 10 zones working after much pulsing and tracking. Today's project was getting last 4 zones working. Determined the common was cut after the last operating valve. Thought it would be an easy fix...

    Tried pulling the wiring up out of the valve box, couldnt do it so started digging the box up. Hmm odd way to run the pipe eh?

    Couldnt get any valves down the line to ohmn or anything. Shot voltage down the line, had 26V down there but as soon as a solenoid was hooked up it dropped to zero. Wire is rotten as hell, property manager doesnt want to pull new wire so we are installing 2 SVC-200's tomorrow.

    Great pics, Chris, especially the "water features". I guess our only hope would be the
    schlock that did that would have just joined the forum and found his "work" worldwide.
