Valve Replacement For #10 Green

The irrigation system came through the winter nicely but we are seeing some signs of long-term deterioration. This is normal after fifteen years of operation. Some of our valves, which allow us to section off specific pipes for minor repairs, are beginning to falter. These valves are important because they allow us to perform repairs without shutting down large portions of the system. The following pictures show the replacement of the three inch shut-off valve for #10 green.
