    Dug this up today, planning to install a new sch40 main.

    Stopped and did some more digging when the inlet to the MV turned out to be class 1"

    Anything(s) odd?

    single AVB 180 feet down the main line, before the first manifold(s)

    removing the AVB,

    installing filter > D-check > PGA in place of the (already-cut-out) MV.

    While im kissing ass here during lunch, I must say also:
    Likewise, Leary, you must have taken basket-weaving at some point, that wiring is impressive.
    I'll be as good as you one day, and will also be sporting an air stream. But i have a loooonnnnng way to go.

    Thx Kiril, jim, shoes, and others Cant say it enough :)

    Thanks!

    You might want to throw a PRV on while your at it. Doesn't look like the house is regulated either. At least around here the PRV is in a valve box right next to the meter.

    Most of the time it is around 60-70. We see anything from about 50-80, 100 psi will result in misting heads.
