    IDEALĀ® Lox-OnĀ® 69 Series are the last word in poly pipe clamping. Worm gear clamps can't match their strength. They also cost at least three times as much as a worm gear clamp. I had trouble finding them last time I had to buy some, and got stuck paying list price for less than carton quantity. (Thank goodness for time and material billing :))

    I still cringe thinking about the last re route I had to do. Installer put a Japanese maple within a inch of a hardie valve that was 14" deep. Not fun.

    You think they'd learn that copper tubing would save much grief. I assume these are all curbside water meters.
