    Pulled a London Rain job. Turned out the leak was the blue pipe connection to the house line not the DCVA tie in. Fixed it anyway.

    I call that stuff quest pipe.

    More pics:
    THE UNBELIEVABLE HOMEOWNER

    The mind that comes up with this stuff is unbelievable:hammerhead: conundrum or kludge? You pick

    The first is a master valve

    Then he snipped the wires off the AVB valve to use as a backflow. Finally for what ever reason he sawed the seat area off the AVB gate valve?????

    This valve puts RB in the Irrigation Hall of Shame.

His glue joint leaked. Somehow in the las pic he managed to 45 twice directly under the sidewalk.:clapping:;)

    Gee, you think they could have buried that pipe a bit deeper?

    Fittings under hardscape = asinine. Yes, in some cases it can't be avoided, but under a sidewalk -> no excuse.
