Why move the riser when you can just encase it into the rock wall?

Can't find a 3" 45 pressure fitting for the mainline? Just use a sewer fitting!

I'm with you. I use to save odd irrigation findings. But from now on I will photo document them. Man, we are some messed up individuals. One favorite of mine is when pvc cement is drizzled over a fitting to help stop a leak. When the season kicks in we need a photo contest of "the worst of the worst".

Is that just sitting on that all-thread, or does it go into the slab?

The pump doesn't bother me so much, since they should be stable if all the baseplate and pump flange holes are securely fastened.

But why on earth didn't they either drop the baseplate all the way down or pour up to it? I bet it vibrates like he!!
