Rolling Pull Lines

Throughout the golf course there are still irrigation pull lines that have not completely settled from last years irrigation installation.  These areas have gotten better after a freeze and thaw cycle, but they still are acting like mini speed bumps every 55 feet across the fairways.

We have recently rolled the pull lines with a small asphalt roller to smash down the heaving that took place.  After rolling the lines have flattened out, but a slight bump is still present.  One of the visible signs of rolling is a slight discoloration or blackening of the turf from the roller's drum going over the pull line several times.
