I understand usually it just takes a few moments to realize your going the wrong way.. Just seeing if there was a trick to it..

Kiril says a finger nail? in the dirt 2-3' down?
I guess there are no tricks..

I was dealing with 2 - 2" brass unions the other day and they were unscrewed opposite from each other.. Meaning when they were installed one was reversed from the other. Breaking loose a 15 year old 2" union is hard enough with out having to go the wrong way and tighten it
i don't understand that you can do all of the locating, leak detection and repair work without having a mirror. i think that a mirror on a stick is essential.

righty tighty, mitch, lefty loosey
