    Only on a consultating basis, the "Hood Canal" system was my final system; a result of twenty-five years of irigation. It's my baby, and terribly complex to the average tech. The clients (old friends) want me around stirring the mud, but I leave the heavy lifting to others, with my adult supervision. Kiril need not look at these pics:

    To get transplendent, huge planning was needed. I locked myself in the site, made sure the crew had other things to do. No phone, no questions, all tools and parts laid out. If you so much as used lite blue instead of dark blue, you were screwed, blued and tattooed. :dizzy:

    I have found that some selected cables had conductor insulation that underwent a color shift in the valve boxes.

    True,that's why I used Page wire only and avoided "shunts" of smaller multi which would change the color codes.
