Makes sense.
I'm guessing that each valve has a built in AVB or PVB. Here you have to have a separate backflow device on all systems. I.e. not on the valve. It goes in right after the meter on the customers side of the meter.

I noticed you guys were using a smaller, more manageable trencher on that job. Are you able to get them 12" deep with that? Here, it has to be at least that deep or the frost line is a problem.

Yes we are able to go all the way to 2 feet deep with that trencher if we wanted to. But here in Fresno, Ca. it doesn't freeze like other parts of the country. 6 to 8 inches works fine around here.

After deciding that our super lawn trucks' tail came out longer than we anticipated. And although we see plenty of trucks out there with the same lenght of tail as ours on the road, for safety we just didn't want to risk the chance of causing a wreck out there. So we decided to put the great fabrication skills to work again and push back the rear end of the truck. But also fabricating and installing an airbag system on it. Here are some pictures of the spring brackets being placed further back on the frame and mounted on. More pictures of the airbag system are to come.
