The stone my wife chose for the pillars is backordered 3 months😳 so in the meantime I got around to installing the landscape lighting.


The area behind the pool was graded ridiculously and heavy rain would dump mud into the pool. My kids also requested steps so they could maneuver over the rockscape a little easier. I added more rocks and a small retaining wall to address both issues.




Also on the list was a complete redo of the sprinkler valves. I used commercial globe style valves because I was having water hammer issues... the static pressure to the house is 180 PSI😳😳😳

"They kids requested" I can hear it now............"Dad will you do this and that?" Notice they do not say "CAN you" as they know you can it is just a matter of if you will LOL

That lighting looks awesome! You are really turning that yard into a work of art!!

180psi ... holy cow :oops: Are you taking showers or trying to remove paint 🤷‍♂️
The pressure reducer is doing its job... for now

180 psi?

That seems unlikely.

How are you measuring that?
I put a gauge on the plumbing before the reducer when I was trying to troubleshoot the water hammer issue. The average pressure is probably around 120 psi but there are definite spikes throughout the day - 180 was the highest the gauge registered.

The incoming water line is 1-1/4" and reduces from there. I had to replumb this manifold when I changed out the pressure reducer so I have an intimate connection to my water supply.


There are plumbing issues throughout our entire neighborhood. Every house on our street has had at least one leak inside their house in the last year, 3 of them re-piped...

If you ever need any custom metal work, you can use the garden hose as a water jet cutter. I'm pretty sure that 180 psi will cut through 1" tungsten plate.

You typically need clearance from the FAA and Space Command before launching projectiles that high....just sayin’ ... don’t want the Russians mistaking any of those sprinkler heads for hyper-sonic nukes ....

This is what happens when just a small amount of THC is left in the CBD extraction process.

wait....there’s NOT supposed to be ANY THC in the CBD oil :unsure: Hmmmmmm, I may need to put out a recall on my CBD oil based “liquid” pool cover product:whistle:
You don’t have to recall the product, you’ll just need to send out a disclaimer notice....
