Pipe Break

Always on a Friday or a long weekend and always when it is about to get hot !!

Had to take time out from normal course set over the weekend to deal with a main line break on the back 9.  An 80mm section of pipe developed a 3 ft long crack, and as a lesson to the young padawans (apprentices) the crack was caused by the pipe becoming brittle as a result of excess glue used when joining many years ago that was left to pool in the pipe. In a case of less is best excess solvent cement left to pool in joints and pipes  will ultimately weaken the pvc walls leading to the above.  

Happy Hooking and New Year to all
