There was electric conduit in the area going to a receptacle on a nearby tree. In 3 weeks electrolysis had leached a whole in the street ell as big as the one in OkieBills copper.
    Sounds like the line needed a little more brass to isolate the street 90.We like to see about a six inch nipple when screwing a smaller amount of steel to a copper water system.
