    I remember now it was unincorporated Cook county. The county inspectors wanted the heavy wall water pipe SDR 26 when we where doing repairs in the parkway. Its been at least 5+ years since I had to dig up a parkway. 99% of the sewers I do just need a proper rodding, or a proper clean out installed.

      Why not just require the Pipelayer to do his job right and offsets won't be a problem.


      I found this a few weeks back. I wonder if the installer ever heard of compacting
      Those things I presume are rubber/plastic furnco adaptors.
      Here if we use them we are required to concrete under them to stop them sinking.
      We also have pipe fittings that fit inside of pipe to stop the furnco from sagging.
      If it is a bad spot also we have an expansion joint approved for use under the ground to gain up to 5"of movement.
      I would only use a furnco as a last resort knowing of problems that I have seen previously.
