    here is a close up of pipes. notice one side of the fitting has 2 crimps and the other has one, then there are 'extra crimps' that have not been used...what were they thinking?

    this is what it looks like when i winterized the system...do you think when the system is operating that the whole deck gets watered...why didn't they put drip or spagehetti tube with stakes in the planting pots?

    just curious about valve placement, i see this isnt your work, i like to place the valves in seperate boxes throughout the lawn. what is your preference?

    would i place valves through out a property...always in groups, never by themselves.

    on most residentials, i would place valves in one box as close to backflow prevention device as possible.

    thoughout the lawn. (1) 1" valve for a 10" round valve box or up to (3) 1" valves in a 12x16" standard plastic valve box
