6" valve boxes BAD BAD

  1. I'm making your case ML for you why 6" valve boxes are a piece of @#$%. Isn't going to change anything in big D cuz it has been done this way for 30 years and before that we just buried them. We just expect to be digging up the valve. I know feet in pic:hammerhead: I've decided 6" valve box photography is going to be my niche.

    A six inch (round) box is an econo box. I got a big stack of them I got for about a buck a pop.

    You can buy a valve box on eBay? Isn't that special. My supply was someone's loss leader item.

    I just can't see shipping a valve box. Heads, sure. An endless supply of Orbit heads, and other Home Depot floor sweepings must be a constant presense on eBay.

    They're about as funny as....... funny pipe. :laugh:

    We have exactly 11 of them in the district. They're all located at the theater I was at today in the planters (one per) and contain curb stop valves to isolate a hose bibb and ASV/battery-operated controller (we're going to change out our remaining 5 Solorains to Hunter ASV/WVC combinations) located in security cages. Maybe I'll take some pics tomorrow for your collection. :)

    Use your photo editing program to crop your feet out of the pictures and then everyone will think you're a pro. :weightlifter:
