    Yup, WM nozzle, RB riser, got to be very careful threading them, obviously.

    As in any brass to plastic, at first, I rotate backwards until I feel the brass thread drop into the plastic. Going forward right away is asking for a cross thread.

    Exactly what I do, and on the odd occasion you get the PITA client who is standing over your shoulder and says "You are going the wrong way!"

    I came across this interesting valve box a few days ago. I think it was a home owner job judging by this and the 2" pop ups in the lawn areas.

    Hope no one has to spin any of those valves out.

    Blowed out pipe. :rolleyes:
    Why is it so difficult for people to use primer and the right glue on flex pipe? :wall

    i theorize that if you don't need primer then why would they make it?
