    Ya'll may grow to hate my IPhone. Anyway I walk my dog Beau for an hour after I get home. These are sprinkler issues all within minutes of my house. I'll break them up in posts for commentary reasons.

    What is wrong in this first pic? several in my opinion. What is odd is the same house had a stand of buffalo grass in the parkway. The left hand definitely doesn't know what the right hand is doing.

    Is there a DC in the valve box? or worse yet, an RP in there below ground?

    That's funny. I have talked about walking just any neighborhood, and making notes and pics of what is wrong on every system that I can see without turning it on. Especially freeze damage at the BFV. I kind of want to know a percentage or average of how many homes have frozen and repaired. I'd say minimum of 50% have frozen something at the BFV at some point.
