    A Few days ago.

    This woman had a stuck valve on and knew nothing about her irrigation system and had her house water shut off.

    3/4 Toro AVB's flush with the ground with a 3/4" galv manifold.
    I Couldn't even take the valve apart to see what the issue was.. My Guess was ( you can't really see the snow outside) But he had a consistent of 3 to 4 days of below freezing temps and damaged the diaphram

    I couldn't find a shut off at first .. So I'm like oh great an illegal system.. But eventually I went into the crawlspace and found a 1" Conbraco DCVA..

    I love conbraco's!

  6. Yiii what a mess. It's been a while since we had a good manifold vs single valve fight. Are we due one?

    Why fight? Everyone knows single 6's around the yard causes delirium and psychotic behavior.
