Had to straighten out a new worker this week. Seems the last place he worked they taught him to wipe the excess glue from joint with his finger and then smear it onto the pipe. They Also taught him to throw any cut off pieces into the trench and bury it with the pipe.

Oy vey...

Yup I've been there plenty of times. We replaced a 4" DC for Gilman's strip earlier this season.

I wish we did more commericial, less dealing with customers.
