Finally after 3 years in a box (I thought it was more like 5)...
I set up my 12 box system on Wednesday....I thought it was all set for our 100 degrees today!
It worked out great overnight....
This morning I needed to use the hose on the other 1/2 of the Y....it created too much pressure and the tubing came off of the White connector.
So..5:30 AM there I am with boiling water fixing it before I leave for work.
I checked all connections and everyone was tight...The tubing was well over the barbs so I was confident leaving it on as I left.
Looked great when I left !
Came home at 8:15 PM to water everwhere, my grass/sidewalk flooded everywhere...
2-- 1/4 connectors came apart and water was apparently running all day
Does not give me much confidence to leave it tomorrow while at work...so
I will be reconnecting the connectors this weekend but am very discouraged.
I do not understand why they worked fine overnight yet today they came apart.
If it was a water pressure fluctuation shouldn't the pressure regulator take care of that
...and if it was water fluctuation....No one was home all day, showers were prior to my leaving at 6AM.
Could the heat today have loosened the tubing connections to the point the water pressure inside forced them apart
Not sure now about expanding for my other 24 boxes once I get these working..
Any suggestions ?
