I knew somebody would say something, no there is another zone in the middle. Not sure why it is laid out like that but it is...

do you have to check out that account after each race to see if any heads may have been damaged from a "out of control racecar"

That system would be a prime candidate for a booster pump.

The kid didnt know how to operate a shovel or much of anything for that matter. This is at a job where a tent stake was driven through my mainline. Somehow the kid had gotten completely covered in mud and also decided that using his hands to backfill was faster than a shovel. I successfully scared him off in less than a week.



Here we are looking for the 3" main that was cut. Contractors had come in and cut the pipe and it was shoved about 3' away from where they had cut it.



My mentor Jerry putting on a new gate valve



Mainline leak I came across yesterday at a huge HOA. As you can tell it is no more than 1" under the top of the sod...



Today Verizon hit my main with their bullet while installing fiber. It was a muddy mess. Luckly I just got the verizon guys to do all the work..



Thats all for now
Links are fixed, sorry moved a bunch of stuff around

A few more recent pictures

New guy on the mower hit the PVB on the inlet side right at the union. As you can see the meter is right there, I didnt have a inch of dry clothing on after turning that meter off..



3" main/tee with a 2" outlet going down into the elbow, no thrust block. Was able to reglue this one and make a thrustblock.





All for now
