When you can slip the pipe all the way to the stop without interference, one should know something is seriously wrong.

Come to think of it, though, I am generous enough with the cement to maybe make up for a socket a smidge too large. The first cement I ever used had the instructions to fully coat the pipe, then fully coat the socket, then come back and apply a second coat to the pipe, before pushing the pieces together.

"Re-use" is one of the worst phrases to come out of a customer's mouth.

This store is like our Home Depot.

I don't know why anyone bothers to install such a rubbish valve, but I do see them 3-4 times per year. DIY I think.

I won't be touching any of it, and it also has no backflow prevention. Complete new install if I end up doing any work there.

Just don't respond with "upgrade" and use a product that is untested for reliability.

Most of the time, you gotta make sure your zipper is closed, had a shave this morning, and be able to say, " it should ALL be replaced, then warranty and continued service will make you and the site happy."

As long as the pipe is below the grass?
Sure we can water that pot, just let me tap into that side inlet of that head that is sticking halfway out of the ground.
