Click on the items above with a question mark and comment on what you think is wrong in the image.
Most of the time in my blog posts my goal will be to show you the right way to do a sprinkler repair or landscaping project. But I also think it is valuable for you to see examples of the wrong way sprinkler repairs and landscaping projects are done.
So I will be devoting a page to “What’s Wrong”, giving you the chance to view an image and comment on “What’s wrong with this picture?” If no one can guess “What’s Wrong” with the image, after a period of time I will go ahead and provide the answer.
In some images the answer will be fairly obvious, but in other cases the answer may be more subtle and less clear. You may even come up with an answer I didn’t think of. So good luck, and happy troubleshooting.
P.S. I really liked the graphic you see above, because you would be amazed the number of times I have encountered a repair where the homeowners tried to use duct tape to fix a pipe or repair a sprinkler and I have yet to see a repair where it worked. Duct tape is great for a lot of applications, but repairing sprinklers that are under water pressure isn’t one of them.
