    Commercial irrigation service call "we got a geyser" after digging in the area, two 1 1/2" supply lines are mushy like a water hose. These lines are two feet in the ground, been there 7 years and all of a sudden the pipes start bursting????? come to find out this place had been repainted 2 weeks earlier and some painter had "cleaned" out his sprayer "out back" right over these lines.....Hello EPA....

    After repairing that "geyser" (hey moe...) geyser # 2 twenty feet away ( probably the painters helper) blows.

    oh well, in case Ya'll ever run across mushy pipes, check the paint job on the property....
