Had a 1-1/2" lateral line break under a tree at one of our high schools near their varsity baseball field. Knew the area under the tree was pretty hollowed out by the "rushing" sound when the zone was turned on. Thank God for the Bobcat backhoe as we would have had one hell of a time rerouting the lateral without it. We took the new line about 15' away from the tree so hopefully it'll be some time before anything like this happens again with this tree. And of course... we had to replace three sprinklers along the fence that were downstream of the break but two of them were Toro S-600s that were about 20 years old. Some pics: #1: The break amongst the root ball of the tree. #2: The pipe had been pushed by the tree and here's how it lined up after cutting it loose. The reroute started with the piece of pipe on the left. The right side was abandoned. #3: Paint showing how far the pipe had been bowed. Left mark shows the current route in line with where the break occurred. Right mark shows the original route when the pipe was installed. #4: Trench done with the Bobcat to reroute the line. #5: Everything all put back together and buried. We needed to bring in 2-1/2" cubic yards of sand to fill the void under the tree and backfill everything due to all the removed roots.
