I had to go and mention hydraulic systems in one of these threads didn't I??? A homeowner I did work for over 5 years ago when I was working for another company saw me and asked for a card. I remembered HIM, but didn't remember much about his system. You would think I would remember the custom 11 I didn't rebuild and installed an ICC with conversion solenoids on wouldn't you? Seems that about 3 years ago, he let someone aerify the lawn.........while they were doing there thing, bingo, zone one came on. They called the outfit I used to work for, and they sent a green kid out with questionable English skills, let alone irrigation experience. They basically ran him off and haven't been able to find anyone who wants to work on the system.......Until they ran into me. They called earlier and I went out to look at it today. Tubes are punched somewhere in the front yard. Four zones are running at once now. Going back tomorrow to hook the garden hose to the conroller end and hope I get a leaker that shows up. I've even given up asking why me anymore.
