bigger pipe

here's a pic of some 12" being lowered into position for a repair, (that's a 76 year old man running the show from the front lines for all of the pups on the forum) the job went about as smooth as one could ask for under the circumstances.

i enjoy working with larger pipe and make sure of my push by marking socket depth for primer and glue application and a 12" verification line beyond the socket depth mark and match marks for alignment

I have to say that I don't miss working with large pipe, especially ductile iron, and mechanical fittings. My back just can't take that kind of a beating anymore!

just got a call and they're running six instead of three valves and have more pressure than ever. this closes up a thirty year project and next year the whole thing will be defunct as the property is going into walnuts and a ne well will be punched.

sprinkus-my back is screwed too. reason for the excavator
