    OK is that purple pipe for reclaimed water? If so there is STILL too much primer all over the place.

    That site was cut out of solid rock, like many jobsites in this area. I guess the contractor didn't budget in any "select backfill"

    Yup, reclaimed water.
    Well, here is a picture of the contractor's trailer. I think they were out of Austin.
    Nice trailer, BTW. Although they should have spent the money on better installers.

    Damn dingo. I do like that trailer. Not alot of irrigation now, so I like anything that has pipe and irrigation stuff on it.

    That's a ugly trailer. Reminds me of Sanford and Son. I prefer enclosed because it looks professional.

    Professional is just a 12 letter word. Ive seen guys pay top dollar for equiptment to "look professional" and it didnt work. Nine times outta ten I dont shave. Alot of people thinks thats not "professional". Oh well. My two cents.
