    QUESTION! 3/4 in schedule 40 pipe ... is it capable of having more than one spigot area. I’d like to do 2 or 3 more for ease for this old woman! Lol can I run more than one spigot at the same time. It’s going to be primarily drip watering garden and flower beds.

    Tip for you you do not need to put glue on the inside of the pipe only glue the male end insert and give a bit of a turn and you are done. Nice job

    Definitely worth it to do as much of a job yourself that you can. Only hire out what you cannot do because of skills or laws. When you do hire someone, watch and learn to save even more in the future. It’s the only way to make the budget go further.

    Yep, now is the time to do the water line also while you have the ditch witch on site. So glad you are retired and can now have the time to do projects that need to be done and convenience is so very nice when you are out working. You have nice rich looking soil.

    Every time I see your cars and RV in the parking area, I think, “Why don’t they build a garage or carport near the house for those?” Suggestion for a project to video, and your vehicles will smile.

    That looked great. Easy soil to trench, where are the rocks? Our frost line is 4 feet, need to go a little deeper.

  • Johnny

    Funny, here in Arkansas we were going to trench a line. We called the utilities and all of told us to go ahead and dig and if we cut a line then they would just come out and fix it. Which we did cut the phone line. They were out that evening and fixed it no change.

    You could have used a couple 45° angle fittings to make a little bit of a "rounded" corner. And knowing about your very recent freeze, I think I would have set the trencher to near 2 feet deep to help your water line.

    That's an amazing machine - trencher. Never knew it existed. Looks like a big chain saw. I'm 72, so I'm not gonna be using one any time soon, but I might have to get a teenage grandson to run one.

    Put two 45s in it so its curved and theres less water resistance. Also, use a reamer to ream out the interior of the pipes and sand the burrs out before priming and gluing. We installed our own irrigation system for the yard, and thats how we did it. I designed it, hubby figured out the electrical and we both installed it.worked great! Well, i guess i was too late with my advice.

    You are LUCKY! 4 in. frost line! Around here where I live, (N. Wisconsin) our frost line is 4 ft. That trencher is nice but it wouldn't do the job around here. Glad you are having such nice weather where you live. Here we've been having nice weather, for us this time of year, but won't be thinking about planting a garden until mid May. Then still worry about frosts sometimes till mid June. Good luck with everything and God bless you and your family.

      For a 3/4 inch line he could have skipped the primer. Manufactures of PVC for electric recommend not using primer regardless of pipe size. I got to argue that one with the Army Corps of Engineers LoL.
