    Work hard play hard my friends..

    Anyways I've done a few installs lately which has been a nice change of pace.

    When do I get to winterize because the rest of the crews are doing it...

    Today I did 2 leaks jobs

    First job service line leak with no service. I found the leak in 5 min however it was under the sidewalk... So I had to replace a large section of the pipe.

    Apparently there was a leak several months back that a different company repaired about 6' from where the new leaks was..

    The other company recently dug up there connection which is why the sod cuts are effing god damn horrible..

    The copper POC to poly was 3" inside the cement so I cut back 10" for room. I used pex because I have horrible luck soddering bended copper..

    The original poly was 3/4 .. which I didn't have any on had so I beefed it up to 1" 250 psi

    First pic is my accoustical find. Last pic is my clean up

    Second job I found the leak rather quickly next to a stump of a tree.

    Spent 2 hours digging and sawzalling 3-6" roots in crazy directions

    You're doing well Mitch. Where are you guys getting your probes? I can't find a hammer blow or smart probe around here.
