    Thanks for the help & you cats lay low for awhile until this pipe cools off .

    Had to use a mirror on two joints .:)

    The dyslexic lefthanded affliction helped out welding ass backwards .:D

    Filled the system today to check for leaks . All dry and shut the valves off going to the other section of the building & opened the bypass .

    Water meter needle stopped turning . We isolated that side & confirmed the leak is under the concrete in that section of the building like suspected .

    I have welded a few irrigation joints with a good groove by the braille method and not a single seep. The designers have a tendency to put joints right down on the concrete, or in a spot up against a pad going onto the ground. I've gotten good at taking out a foot at one end and putting it back in the other end to make stuff work.

    We first looked at some mechanical couplers but there was simply no room up there .

    Went with slip on weld flanges & fired up the heater . Hand me the mirror . LOL :D
