    What did you expect from TX?

    Actually, I've seen the same here in CO. Replaced below ground AVB valves, and added a PVB. I've even picked up the cones, and driven away from one job. Dad would be proud :)

    Seen it here too, but in TX, they wouldn't know how to build a proper manifold even if they were handed a set of plans. :laugh:

    That's how we know when a Yankee contractor got lost on South bound I-35. We swiftly send them back.

    Not really a piker/hack pic, but very dangerous none the less.

    What are the rules on shoring? Depth to width wise?

    That look's like a quick way to die.

    it is complicated. 42 in in most cases 48 for sure.

    Ever wonder why maximum depth for a single grave is 47-3/4 in. Shoring.

    Mixed slopes and over digging can eliminate shoring requirements.
