Got a message at 6 this morning from a new client we started up on Tuesday. Said please call me, sprinkler system is broken and it flooded my basement. First thought was Oh ****! What did my tech do wrong. But then I new that he could not have missed a leak that would have flooded a basement. Tech was scheduled to be back there today at 8 AM anyway to finish up. System is in poor shape. I showed up due to easy schedule today and my tech showed me where the poly mainline had come apart at a coupler. Looked like the pipe hadn't been put on over the barbs completely. The coupler was from a repair some other company did last year. So then I thought to check the pressure. 160 psi!!! The pressure regulator had failed. So that is what had blown it apart. It could have been a poor repair as well though. Window well had almost completely filled up. Carpet was nasty. So I'm glad I thought about it clearly before I jumped to conclusions about why the basement flooded.
