Not Even 24 Hours

Well I knew it would be a matter of time before we had our first break of the year, but I was not expecting to happen this fast.

The system was charged yesterday afternoon and things were looking good at the pump house; pressure was maintaining and no slow leaks appeared to be occurring. What surprises me the most was the fact that a break occurred with our pumps running 1/3 of the pressure that has been run for the last 23 years.

This fact proves how much of a ticking time bomb we still have with the old irrigation system components. I will be holding my breath until the time comes in June when we will be fully operational with the new system.
