    Not to mention craptastic. What does the hose-bib line feed?

    I think it was just for a blow out. There was a manual soaker line 50' away though

    Found this today. It was tricky becuse the leak did not surface until about 45 seconds into the runtime, and when it did it emerged right in the drainage trench! This will be a costly repair.

    what's that? Was this tape actually meant to hold water leaks?

    Some folks seem to think that wrapping pipe with tape makes the hole they just put in it go away. :rolleyes:

    I think I'll try that spray on stuff from the tv to stop leaks. Heck, if it keeps a boat afloat, it must be good. Right?
