It was brought to my attention a couple of months back that there are far more TBOS, IBOC, Nodes and Pucks being installed than in recent years. One supplier that i spoke to yesterday said that his sales were double of last year by July 1. I see this trend as an effort to mitigate wire issues via abandonment. While it works well enough to get water back on the ground, what is gonna happen when the valve box is covered over and out of sight. What will be required to find the valve? I'd like to hear some opines, options and theories.
