    Well I was without power for 30 hours due to a short violent storm with 100 mph downwinds. Today I had another classic DIYer but this was a whole system install not just a minor repair or two. The first pic is the reason for the call. The second pic is the box removed. That is a mass of roots that took the shape of the box. The third is a lawn genie and the light still works. The fourth is the original plan tacked to the garage wall. The fifth is my repair. A little overkill to put a DV 100 w FC but hey every system deserves the same professional treatment. Got two more pics.

    Like my wash up tool? Put it together with stuff in my garage. The last pic is another manifold box in the same yard. Best I can guess somebody didn't want to dig up the box so they piped the 205 over the 2400s.

    The most remarkable thing here is that the light on the Lawn Genie timer hasn't burned out yet.

    Boy, Peter... I'm surprised She didn't get on you for removing all those fibrous roots. Something surely has to die now. :nono: :laugh:

    It was just WetBoots trying to cram more valves in one standard size box!!

    Looks like a larger version of the wash unit a dentist uses. Well... guess irrigation work is a lot like dentistry... hurts like hell especially when you give them the bill. :)

    When I saw that light working I knew it would make your day.
