Nathan taught a short course today on irrigation repair
After an hour or so of classroom work, we went out into the collections for demonstrations of actual repairs. I was impressed. Over the years I've replaced and repaired pieces of these systems and stumbling through the process has given me a minimal working knowledge of them. I'd assumed the same for Nate, but he must have had some serious training. His knowledge of both practice and theory was very impressive. Now there are a dozen or so of us who should be able to replace the terminals of our irrigation systems.
