So I replace the glue cans with a torch. I'm betting those torch attachments with the auto start are the way to go. Can't imagine the time involved using a striker on every fitting. I have a rubber hammer that I used in some furniture repairs I may try as well. That green pipe came out of Hastings, NE. Felt and seemed every bit as durable as the black. Pretty much every system here is or was pulled. The soil is clay loam but compared to the gumbo in TX it digs like sandy loam.
