    Can he point his index fingers at each other in front of him, rotate one clockwise, and the other counterclockwise?

      Only if he has tassels dangling from them. (Oh I'm gonna get in trouble for this one!)

        yes, it's a combination of cat 5 and coax and phone.

        all the utilities are right there including the 800 amp outdoor panel, 3'' gas main and phone and cable entrance. i think some of those wires were added for his outdoor bbq center.

        solder is silverbrite and flux is water safe.

        capping a vertical joint is pretty simple with the right heat.

          I can't believe you told him about your tassels.

            Silverbrite? I have not encountered that brand. I use Bridgit or Lennox-Sterling.......and the dreaded Laco flux

              There's two that have tried. (Gear Junkie, BizzyBee) Any others? (I can do it by the way.)

                Kind of curious on the union you installed. with a copper install it seems kind of pointless, I only ever use them in pairs or when I have room to spread the line. Is that just one of those things you were taught, or am I missing something "very likely"
                No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

                  i think you're missing something.

                  the 2'' riser is in concrete with no play. the regulator has a union, the distance between the 2x1 tee and 1'' 90 doesn't allow enough room for a slip coupling. so basically without play, how would you reconnect the 1'' and still slip in the fittings?

                        for the price of a 1'' cxc union, i now have a way to remove the ball valve without cutting as there is now a union on the regulator and irrigation. steam was not an issue as the 3 ball valves shut off.

                        ps. no one got killed or injured while disconnecting the water service at the valve. and that's with a 800 amp electrical underground service.

                          actually, I just learned something, from that picture, and it's one of those things that reminds me that I'm still learning every day.

                          I use unions to make disassembly at a later point easier. So i'd have put on directly above the irrigation tee, then another on top of the 2" ball valve, if I were going to use them at all.

                          It never crossed my mind to use one to make it easier to put the thing together, I'd have gone the route more like themaster described, or cut significantly more material out and redone all of the risers.
