    I found out the hard way....
    that the former LCO of my current commercial property decided he wanted a hose bib tied into the water main for a condo complex. He used residential pvc piping to make it. Apparently he was told it was a bad idea, so he cut and capped it ground level and covered the cap over with pine straw.

    the piping was no match for my rented EZ trencher as a gusher spouted 35 feet in the air. Soaked head to toe.... including undies... ugh!

    2000 feet of bed edging.... nipped the pipe with 15 feet left to go. Made for a horrible day/
    Sorry, just needed to vent.
