    our easements here are like 16 ft from the curb in, which sucks, but takes all liability from the city for repairs esp to irrigation systems. i took that into account when i install alot of mine, including my own, and stub out to the heads instead of running the pipe withthe street

    That was always a good selling point to HOAs for a company I worked for once.

    There would be a "homeowner" who wrote an anonymous letter to the board with some photos enclosed... and mention trip hazards and lawsuits and such...

    Galvanized or PVC risers usually got changed over to pop-ups without much delay.

    I think the garden hoses are a nice touch on that install.

    Hey! That's not a garden hose. It's a GREEN backflow device. They are going GREEEEEN. The whole system has a much lower carbon footprint than the intricate systems that we all install!

    I guess the garden hose makes for easy winterizations too.....
