... "broken sprinklers near pump. Area real wet."
Sure doesn't appear to have happened yesterday, or the day before that, or the day before that...
That sure looks like fun to me
Is that Visalia's version of drip irrigation?
So whatcha got bad seal or repack?
I guess nobody bothers to look to see what the real problem might be huh?
They just think, water leak= sprinkler leak.
Major pump leakage there man!
This has been a recurring problem over the years. They've had 4-5 pump companies work on it and it still does this swamp-fox action. You'd think that the site would know by now it's NOT a sprinkler problem.
Specially designed by Sheshovel.
Not being a pump guy I'm really not sure.
Happens quite a bit here. Can't count the number of times we've done the digging only to find out the problem is domestic and belongs to the plumbers.
Turbine packings are supposed to leak (a little). I would say that leak is somewhat excessive.
What they need is a maintenance guy to give the packing nuts a little turn every now and then. That is if there is any packing left to tighten.
I think it's the phitzer valve. You can fix it with some 30 weight ball bearings, gauze, and duct tape.
Quick ? The 2" galv. pipe i see in one picture comes up to a 90 comes out below the pump it looks to turn in the direction of the leak also, Any possibilites?Just for everyone's info all the pumps I work on run at a very fast drip or what I would call a very slow run.And ain't no rocket science to it.You don't install or repair either one?
