Since I've been awarded a gold star on picture compression thought I'd share a few pics taken yesterday during a repair project at one of our high schools. A small crack in a 4" tee lead to rerouting and the replacement of an old gate valve with a new resilient wedge valve. Total material costs = $900. (R/W valve will be installed tomorrow since it had to be ordered.) Picture #1: 2-1/2" long crack in original 4" PVC tee. The water from this crack had already sawn through two controller wires. Picture #2: Left tee is where the crack occurred at a 3" main line spur that heads to the JV baseball field. Second tee is a 4" main line spur that heads off to a five zone system (expandable to 12 zones in future to replace a quick coupler area) near the varsity baseball field. (Round green box covers an existing R/W valve that had been buried and lost for quite some time.) Rectangle valve box covers an old 4" gate valve and was also used as a wire make-up box. That part of the line heads to the varsity baseball field. Picture #3: First two main line spurs joined past the existing R/W valve so it will control isolation of both these spur lines without disrupting the varsity baseball field. Picture #4: Everything cut away and ready to be put back together. Picture #5: Repairs made and gap left for new R/W valve to isolate varsity baseball field. Decided to forgo a wire make-up box, DBYed the wire connections and direct buried them. The two R/W valves will have new Christy G-5 concrete boxes set with cast iron lids so they won't be completely lost in the future.
