Grrr...

First thing I did was turn on the water to the house, and then auto sprinklers. I tried manually running each cluster - nothing would work but the front yard. And, they would not shut off. And the controller box is full of water. I had to turn off the water supply.

Looks like I'll be having a conversation with the guy who blows out the lines, and maybe doesn't do such a good job.

Sigh.. the joys of home ownership.

It's good to be back. We enjoy our time down south, but we also enjoy our north time, even if it does require some minor work to get things running at the start.

The same can be said for RV'ing. In the fall after they sit all summer is usually then a race to get everything back in order.

It's just part of the lifestyle. I'm just happy that I can have those types of problems. Many can not.

We have a home security system with freeze and flood sensors along with the usual door and window sensors. We leave the heat set at 50 degrees. The system uses the Verizon data network to notify us and the monitoring company of any issues.
The only notification email we got was for a one hour power outage.

When we got home a week ago the batteries in two of the three thermostats were dead.It appears that the units held the 50 degrees though since it got down to minus 19 or so and I don't think the one zone with good batteries would have heated the whole house.

I replaced all the batteries with new date codes before we left and they are supposed to be good for three years or so. They held up fine the winter before so I guess I got a bad lot of batteries.
