Murphy's Law Strikes
Murphy's Law states that "if it's hot and dry, irrigation systems will go haywire." Our system (pumps, motors, controls, heads, etc.) has been under a great deal of strain these past few weeks so glitches are not all that surprising. It's just tough to be without water during such a dry time. We've been able to troubleshoot our issue to a point, but have sufferred system shutdowns two nights in a row. We've had water during the day, but lost pressure at night when the bulk of irrigation is scheduled to occur. Help is on the way so hopefully we'll get it figured out and make it through tonight without incident.
