Wow you would rather run piping all through the stinking house than tie in at the meter? I would walk a job that needed piping in the house. We tie in all systems at the meter around here. Fast, easy, clean and I dont have to take off my boots.

It's different up north. The meters in many cases are in the basements.

Yea, I've been up north and seen the basement meters. Tie in at the meter is super simple though. Thats what I would do even if its deep.

me too but we are programmed to think that way. They are programmed to come out of the house and plow it in. There is a good chance you will do more hand digging in a month than northern irrigators do in 6 months. Different setups and different soils.

FYI I am working an e-mail to send you about questions with the pigtails.

Some meter installs will be on special holder assemblies called "yokes" and they are a whole 'nother story, when it comes to making a system connection in a small pit.

Sure it's 1/2" copper?
The outside diameter of 3/4" copper is pretty close to that of 1/2" pvc. I've had guys mistake 3/4" copper pipe for 1/2" pipe many times.
