Also had to use my Socket Saver to ream out one side of a tee just downstream of a completely buried PVC ball valve because the valve fittings were all butted up to each other. Also took a bit longer to do all because temps were in the mid 90's.

Installed three new RB ASVF valves and a new hose bib secured to a post.

Going back to finish all connections today.
i have fitting savers and the reamer set, i bought a right angle attachment for the cordless which is the bomb.
