>Frozen Sprinkler Manifold

>
I have a good customer that moved here from a warmer climate.

I told him 3 weeks ago that he should have his sprinks blown out but the weather was beautiful and he wanted to keep his water on a little bit longer.

He went out of town for a few days. While he was gone, we had 3 days in a row where the temperature dropped below 20 degrees at night. He came home to a flood.

He called me and I went over there yesterday. His manifold was all cracked and split. I was unable to get any air through the lines because there was still ice in them. The best I could do was cut all the poly lines to his stations so that the ice might melt and run out on it’s own.
I might be able to rig up an adaptor for the individual lines but the major damage has already been done.
