What separates the pros from the dipwads, is pride.

You non-poly guys tend to forget our PVC is hardly poppin' fresh like it is in trenching territory. A single length of one-inch sch 40 is enough for more than a dozen systems worth of manifolds.

I'm with boots on this one...

I've never seen a manifold crack or break here in New England because the glue and primer is a little slopy .

Yeah, just today I was making a manifold a had to dig a piece of PVC from the bottom of the bed of the truck. It was quite dirty I had to wash it before I started glueing.

This install season has been nuts..

I'm on my second stick rounding Aug...


insane..

I'll dump these here

dos por uno



I love the 4X10....I have moved dumpsters with it..


The big boss loves putting valves, clock, reducer, 2 runs of wire and 4 zone pipes in a tight area about 4 X 8. with barely any running room ..

Thanks to 2 for 1 pulls I can do it..Although im suprised i didn't cut anything


Main and wire


almost ran the entire 300' roll out. stretched a lot.


big blade on the sink


Complete mismark from OFF TARGET



Complete animal when it comes to installs, it sucks that he goes back to school
