    Spent a couple of days up in Antioch, CA with my son and his wife for the Thanksgiving holiday. The wife and I took a walk to a neighborhood park and I just couldn't help myself taking pictures of irrigation items that need repairing.:laugh:

    Have to admit that the park was quite nice with all its dark green fescue grass but that's the difference between the hot valley where I live and the cooler east bay area.:)

    That box must have been beaned hard to break the one beneath the riser in the same spot :)

    I do the same thing, my wife hates it.

    Hell... When you've been in it as long as we have even little things are like getting hit up side the head with a shovel.:laugh:

    My wife was actually the one that brought it to my attention first. I was busy taking pictures of the kids and their dogs and was turned the other way when she discovered it. :)

    The kids just moved into their first home and naturally I've been "volunteered" to redesign the landscaping and irrigation at their house when they're ready for it. They have a lot of clean-up to do (not that the yards are in bad shape or anything)... tearing out what they don't want, etc. I took measurements while there and have already done up a plot plan for them and sent it via email.:laugh:

    My wife and I went to the SilverWood Theme park in Idaho last year and they had a lot of the system in plain view.

    Nelson Rotors and Toro sprayheads, if I recall correctly, a little weird, because you don't see any Nelsons and most of the toro sprays are phased out here.

    I spent a lot of time analyzing their system while I waited 20 minutes to ride a 15 second ride :)
