    so do i

    the additional cost for the valve is easily absorbed in the simple installation of removing a 90 and not having to install swing joints to level the valve.

    funny part is the person who invented the assi valve also invented the little fire fighter that robert used.

      an 11/4 ASSI might have worked in this situation. take off the
      11/4 x 3/4 x 1 tee and install the 11/4 90.....then run a bell reducer to 3/4 and hook the meter back up.

        This is funny, I installed an assi onto a reinforced stone veneer wall next to the meter,I'll send pix. later. Inspector never said a word. Never called Him, HE HE , Me bad.
        Ihave installed Two so far, as a gift ,for customers that have become family. I charge
        $400.00 material and labor for this brand.
        I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

          i was thinking the same thing about those joints.. didn't see much pipe dope or tape..? nice job it looks really clean
