Customer called me with a problem. Couldn’t find the valves.
Here’s where we started looking.
Notice the broken PVC, victim of overenthusiastic Weed Whipping.
In my youth and inexperience, I didn’t recognize these little beauties.
They are Electro-Hydraulic valves. The solenoid opens a little valve and allows water to shoot through and open The Big Valve.
All the Valve Finder tool does is vibrate the solenoids. That doesn’t help locate the actual valves.
I told the customer that I was unable to locate them without digging up the yard.
Does anybody else know a different way?
