I love showing up to a homeowners house for irrigation work for repairs and see the typical homeowner jerry rigged water supply for the system being fed with a spigot. I just shake my head with a WTF look and say to myself you got to be kidding me. 😒🤦♂️.
The homeowner that im fixing this system for did not do this, but bought the house like this. Ripping out this pvc spigot hookup crap and doing it the way it should have been done. Plumber will be out in a few days to run the 1 inch supply with a PVB that should have been run in the first place. Also replacing heads, changing the valve solenoids, and getting all new wiring with a nice hunter hydrawise wifi controller. Do it once, do it right, no call backs. Stay tuned for the finished product.
