Keeping his job

I'm actually giving both a paid day off tomorrow and taking them to the Colorado Rockies baseball day game against Arizona. I think Tom Tom is going too.

Hey, not all my manifolds are outrageous. Besides, if I don't repost that every so often, the image host will delete it.

Sounds cool , fridays is deep sea fishing haddock / cod for my guys. One of our customers is a cappy out of rye harbor NH, traded him a 1 zone add on for a day of off shore fishing.

It has helped prevent having to rebuild and entire 8 zone manifold just because an ell and pipe cracked leading into the first PVC mani tee. Cored out the PVC to where all I saw was primer on the inside of the tee. We only picked up the 1".

I can't find a good pic or link, but this link is to a plumbing supplier with a couple weak pics.

one time when i was doing somthing stupid (tried to get a tee in the poly just before the manifold and snaped the first tee) I just cut the broken end clean and got the next size up coupling that fits around the manifold tee (1 1/2" or 1 1/4"). Then bushed back down to 1".
