Of course right away the unqualified dumb ass $100 per hour "White" Gardener gave his unsolicited opinion. Oh my God I just knew it, this project was too difficult to complete for you guys. The church should have hired a real license contractor to do this project. Ha ha ha I was right after all. I just told you so. ( Since he did not like anybody getting into to his area - stealing his work.)
Well if you remember I had left the crew in charge of installing 6 sprinkler heads exactly like above with some 1/2 gallon per hour drip emitters. What could possibly go wrong it was 10,000% fool proof ? Well do you know what went wrong, the dumb ass unqualified, over paid white gardener showed up while the plants were being installed. So he told the crew that the 1/2 GPH drip emitters would not be enough to water the plants. He told them, here are 50 little plugs that you can put in their instead, their useful for keeping the bugs out but will let the water flow freely when you bury the 1/4" plastic tube.
Failure analysis !!!
So did you figure it out yet, what the problem was ? As you can see from above each head - wide open can put out 141 GPH per hour. With three heads running for 20 minutes each, guess how much water was being pumped into the flower planter. Yes you are 10,000% correct 141 gallons of water were being pumped into the flower planter to water 10 little plants that could easily be watered with less than 2 gallons of water, and this was being done 3 times per week.
Do I want to kill an unqualified dumb ass $100 per hour "White" over paid Gardener YES !!!
Even though I am a white guy too, its hard to imagine that a Licensed professional gardener could be such a stupid dumb ass who has a license ? His over watering of the same planters had caused $30,000 in damages of water damage and mold inside the 2 class rooms a few summers ago.
