    Found another interesting repair picture. Of course its always the bottom pipe that has the hole in it. Only had to cut two of the top pipes to get access, so turned out easier than I first thought.

    No law says you have to bundle pipes in a trench. (You should've seen the pipes leading to this compact beauty!)

    DITTO. If that job was pulled in, someone was not happy with their employer!

    I particularly like the standard wire nuts....no grease filling. Outstanding!

    Conversation with a telephone pitchman for waterproof connectors, years ago, when they were still a novelty ~
    (me, after listening to pitch) - "It seems to me that standard
    wire nuts aren't an issue where deep valve boxes are used."​

    (salesman, after a pause) - "You're right."
