    For those familiar with 2-wire systems:
    Found an old Huhnterr IDS 2-wire module while poking through some old stuff the other day. Interestingly enough it had "Made In Denmark" on it.

    There is a company in Denmark who makes all of the decoders for Rain Bird, Tucor and I guess Hunter as well.

    a few more. we finished installing the main and wire today. started the well up and did a flow test, 45 gpm @ 50 psi at the furthest point from the pump. site is still out of power from the storm so had to use my generator to run the pump and controller.

    Not bad at all. The loose wire from the clock would have cleaned it up if it was in conduit. Why were sch 80 unions not used on both sides of the p.o.c.? Nice boot shot,M

    I had to use carflex conduit because the gas line runs horizontal along the building and i couldn't fit rigid conduit behind it so i had to go over it. the 2" stainless union was supplied by the well driller and i didn't see any reason to change it out.
