jimmy hoffa's buried in a motor home?
I never come across inspectors here in Sydney, but during our strict water restrictions there were heaps of "Water Restrictions officers" - mainly obese middle aged men who would drive around fining people $220 if they were caught using sprinklers, or watering at the wrong time. Two of them rocked up at one of my clients at 2am with a torch when the system was running and found a shrubbler under a Rose that was slightly trickling instead of dripping. They came back at 8am to fine her. She protested and explained how she had spent a lot of money converting it from sprinklers to drip and how she also had a rain sensor installed. I met with the officers later that day and one of them pointed to a shrub head on a 1/2" sch 80 riser and asked if it was the rain sensor.
His partner facepalmed while I gave him a spray about not even knowing what a sprinkler was or what a rain sensor looked like.
I had a few dramas with the clowns over the years and would have loved to bury a few of them.
No inspectors here and licisenses are a new concept. I actually wasnt even called to fix this, the entrance monument had 3 broken pipes that no one knew what happened on. Of couse I found it interesting that there was a brand new marketing sign 3' from where the shattered pr200 pipes were. And of course I didnt have ANY 3/4" pr200 on the truck, to be honest i didnt know it existed. I'm more of a 1.25" sch40 man myself. Oddly enough did you know that 3/4" pr200 is more $ than 1"????
Here's an interesting conglomeration that I had to repair the other day. Notice the caulk that the HO put on there to try to stop the leak.
It's been so dry out here that the squirrels are chewing through the drip tubing and even nozzles/shrub adapters to try to get some water.
I had heard that any kind of poly was asking for it in desert climates....
i think one of Boots' understudies has migrated east.
I have photos of a couple double-deckers like that. Will post later.
Sorry, no "before" pic!
