    I think one of those ASV's was the rare Richdel "solenoid optional" model

    A DCVA installed to correct practices is miles ahead of that crap. :hammerhead:

    Dare I ask, wtf is wrong with a properly installed and tested DCVA? It's Cali testing regs that govern the western states and British Columbia with Alberta. I have no problem with DCVAs when professionally managed. I still consider irrigation low hazard.

    A tested DCVA could fail nine seconds after you pass it as functioning properly.
