    Went on a repair call this morning and this is what we dug up. Look at the stress on the main in the center of the pic.

    I think the company that installed it must charge by the fitting.

    #1 Joint with no primer and little if any glue

    Another bad joint #2

    Socket side of #2

    Bad joint #3

    Notice how much curve there was in the mainline.

    lol, that looks like sawzall time,after staring at it for 20 minutes trying to figure out where the main is.
    what is the smaller piece of PVC that 90's from the main towards where the 2 zones go?

    That is 3/4 pvc connecting a flower bed on the north side of the house to a bed on the south side of the house as best we could figure out. :confused:

    Yes we cut out the entire mess and my tech reinstalled 3 valve manifold without playing round and round the mulberry bush.
  6. Looks like it has been repaired before.

    I love those types of jobs. I hope all companies that install like that keep up the great work.

    I look at that like $65.00 per hr. That looks like a good day job with few scrathes to the O'l hat rack.
