    we installed this on a well lateral today. We are replacing the piss poor existing system. The original installer tapped the main in the basement which is 250’ away from the well. The well lateral is 1” poly. The zones were built for 20 gpm and had terrible pressure. I figure they were loosing about 20 lbs just through the well line alone. 023A9020-92A0-41C9-B8B9-2C8891A537F9.jpeg 830ECF41-5EF6-408D-AB25-8D0A3CFA7B38.jpeg A37AD1C4-4E5D-4113-9D63-3802BAEDEEBA.jpeg

    Yes we have to go deep but this one was extra deep at 66”. I have never seen frost deeper that 36” here.

    That’s the new guy. My other guy has taken to calling him “Jerry”

    Ohhhhh I like that riser extension. I use/ see curb stops often but I have not seen that set riser before. We just don't freeze like you guys

    I was going to comment earlier and say that the guys t-shirt is way to clean while being in a hole like that.

    Good spot on the pressure loss over 250' of 1" poly at 20 GPM. Should improve things greatly.

    Mueller makes those two-hole top caps. No pentagon bolts. An extension rod gets pinned to the curb stop handle, and the Mueller key works it. The setup allows for varying depth of the curb stops, with only one key needed to work any of them.

    I'll be playing with a half dozen curb stops tomorrow-it's HOA Day!

    Remember-we get censored if we write curb ****.
