    Pure laziness is my opinion. Although drinking fountains are located nearby they're not used because it takes a team too long to "water down" during practices.

    First two pictures shows a water horse near the varsity softball field that's been being tied into a QCV on the irrigation system.

    Last three pictures shows a water horse that is constantly left on in the varsity football practice area although it comes off a domestic Zurn valve next to a drinking fountain.

    Pure laziness is my opinion. :dizzy:

    TRUTH!!!!!!


    People can get sick and die from a bad CC...Reminds me of the story the guy in irrigation school told the class about a football team in the 50's that drank off a garden hose buried in the ground....Fertilizers Got through the garden hose making the entire football team very sick with a possible fatality.

    One would at least think they'd use the white non toxic hose we use in the motor home.:hammerhead:

    Ditto. Is that hose even safe to drink out of?
