    I just got the contract to take care of our local high schools football and soccer fields. At the soccer field one of the first things I want to do is take care of a potential problem. The guy who did this before me did kind of a crappy job of installing the pump, backflow and timer. I fixed all the crappy wiring problems that were left exposed, but I want to protect them by putting a cage over the top of them that lifts up for access to the box. I just want to do this incase a ball comes over that way and really messes some stuff up. How do I go about doing this???

    The purpose of the concrete is to anchor the cage, putting metal straight in the ground is a no-no. If you were to buy one of those cages, the concrete pad would be the cheapest part of your whole gig.
