Irritation Season

Oops. I meant to say irrigation season. Must have been a Freudian slip. Now that we have finally reached the full time irrigation season, things are busier than ever. We have had a lot of issues with our irrigation controllers this year which have occupied most of my blogging time. We have 64 irrigation controllers on the golf course. Any one of the components can go bad and there is no real logic as to determining which component is bad.

Aside from the controllers going bad, we have had many issues with the ground wires. Every sprinkler has a ground wire and with our sprinklers covering 200+ acres, that is a lot of ground wire. Tracking down where the wire is bad has been challenging to say the least. Luckily it has been a relatively mild summer to date!
