Repairs to the water line at The Tropical Paradise
This morning I noticed *Fountain Hills* where there had been a connection done by a young man with really no experience with this kind'a stuff about twenty years ago (me). So I did a much better connection, using something that wasn't even available back then, these cool couplings that I get at Home Depot.
The first thing I did was to cut away the area to be repaired, and add a generous amount of new trunk line. This requires two couplings and a length of trunk line. I keep these couplings around, and spare trunk line, in the garage. This is a very robust system.
I will keep the repair above ground for a while to be sure that everything is OK, and then I will bury the line and put a nice big rock on it.
