I mean prior to quotes and all. We did a 20 head job this week that all went smoothly until the homeowner came home finally around 4pm which i expected. The ONLY place we could position the valvebox was the back right side of the house, left/front/back all has patio/walkways, hardscaping and gardens. The water comes into the very front left corner I get all copper parts to run to other end of the house, then find out its PVC , shiat. Not only that, but 85% of their basement is finished, has a lot of stuff down there, makes for pita work space. Tonight, i go back again, with every pvc fitting possible, 3/4" , 1", couplers, Tees, elbows you name it. Cut the existing pipe i swore was only 3/4" comming into the house, its not, its 1", but 1" EXTERIOR dia. Everything schedule 40 is measured by the interior flow opening :/ Now ive done electrical work, plumbing with pvc, copper you name it. Ive never yet seen this cpvc besides at a home depot. So now that their water line is cut open, i run to the store, they have nothing 1" or larger... I found 1" coupler slip fittings i could use temporarily. Install them, turn on water, blows off in 2 minutes :/ Do it again, same deal. I put a 2nd one on, so now there are two of these pieces in line with a pipe thats 5" long in between, works for 4 minutes, bows out, blows off. Poor freking people, left em with no water for tonight. This whole situation has turned into a huge mess because of something so simple, i need to get fittings and valve control to go from this 1" cpvc to normal pvc pipe so i can finally hook up the new irrigation system.
