Going Out With a Fight

The irrigation system has been in the ground for nearly twenty three years and for the most part served the club well. It has been in the last three years in particular that have not been so kind to me. During this time we have fought with it every step of the way and now that its days are numbered she’s putting up a fight to the finish.

Yesterday we had a ten inch frost free (deep mainline) on the eight hole fail, causing water service to be shut off to twelve of the holes. The lack of water isolation is the reason that so many holes were turned off to stop the break. It is for reasons like this that we are replacing the old system, so that problematic disruptions of service can be avoided.
