The repair work recently posted where we had to remove about 60' of concrete to cap off three lateral lines must have gotten someone's attention. The district is planning on concreting in "concrete-locked" planters around four buildings at one of our middle schools because of severe drainage problems (roof downspouts... not irrigation) causing mold and other problems in the buildings. I had to go out today and see what type of swing joints were originally installed on the planter sprinkler heads so they can be capped off without leaking. Imagine that they don't want any barbed/ha-ha's left in the ground to cause problems like they did at the other school. Good thing is that I've been told that someone else will be capping off the approximately 75-100 sprinkler heads because we are just so darn busy. Yippee!!! Pic #1 shows part of the typical planters and Pic #2 shows that the swing joints put in actually met our specs. The entire swing joint will be removed and PVC threaded plugs w/ Teflon tape installed. Can't just find the lines at the tees (outside planters beyond original sidewalks will remain intact) and cap off the lines because... you guessed it... they're under concrete.
