    20 zone system inside the crawlspace of a 2mill home.. Each with there own hole exiting the house lol.

    wiring was horrible and the customer wanted it redone as neatly as possible.

    Whoever did this used a roll of telephone wire on a spool and then electrical taped it.

    Took me 4 hours to move the controller and re-wire everything. Ran conduit as close as I could to the valves.

    Nice, I always use as much plastic as I can inside a multi-million dollar home.

    Nice... I've never seen anything like that, and i've seen a lot. I just can't believe someone would put those valve's behind a wall. That's a good spot for a leak... I don't know what to say.

    That's actually what happened there was a leak. which prompted this very busy homeowner to come down here and see the mess.

    Un f-n believable. I guess they do that where it get's cold. That can't be S.O.P. I can see something like causing major damage in a short period of time.
