    HAHAHA, just kidding.

    I went to help one of my buddies that just bought a house, and asked him if it came with a srinkler system. This is what he showed me.

    Quite possibly the worst one I've seen.

    System was being fed off the hose bib, w/o backflow prevention, off a 1/2" pvc line.

    Two short weeks ago I did a repair/upgrade/bring system up to code on a system just like that and made some good $$$$.

    :laugh: par for course out here. At least the valves are above ground, which BTW also means you don't need BF protection. Don't you guys ever see A/S valves in TX?
