John Hopkin: were it ME, i would test the system BEFORE i backfilled the hole...geez...what if it DIDN'T work correctly?...you have to dig it out AGAIN, plus you can't see where the leak was...there is a REASON that construction inspections, be they electrical, plumbing, or whatever, are done BEFORE the work is "covered up"...i wasn't going to say anything, but since i'm THIS far in, i'd like to note that ALL of the sprinkler-head replacement work was done OUTSIDE the frame of the picture...i have NO idea what happened after he finished the PVC repair...granted, that work wasn't in the scope of the original task, but, if you're going to do it and talk about it, couldn't we at least SEE what you're talking about?...
shonsteez: Your videos are great. Just wanna say, thanks!
Andrew Aguirre: nice on point videos
bep2001 kumar: so that slip easy fix joint you used. is that the best way to fix the pipe?? another question is... if you used 2 couplings to fix the break. how do you get the pvc pipe in between the 2 couplings with out breaking anything and still having enough pipe inside each coupling.
Chris S: Never put glue and purple primer on a cement curb, it may spill if not careful, and never put the funny ell facing up, it could snap if run over by a mower. Always face the tee to a side so the fitting and flex pipe have movement.
guavaball: great video thanks
davess357: I've used these type of connectors several times. They make the repair invaluably easier.
Jordan Dekker: Funny pipe - A No No. PVC pipe - A worse No No
Dave K: Good video. Covered in great detail. You gave me a great idea about hot to run a separate line to the sprinkler head. Thank you!
Miles Brown: Thank you! I appreciate your help!
iScaper1: You can buy a quick fix repair coupling at Home Depot or any sprinkler supply store.
JPKHOSA: where i can buy quick fix
iScaper1: Thanks Matt, your feedback is appreciated.
Matt Harrold: Thanks, all the answers I needed, 10 dollars worth of parts and a shovel and I was done.
A Singh: Another excellent video, cheers.
blueticecho: You must live close to the UPRR right a way..........
joey p: theres alot of stress on both funny fittings because the funny pipe is too short. shoulda put your tee at the other end and extended the funny pipe
joey p: you should always try to turn the tee to the side so there is some give. otherwise the funny pipe fitting will break if something runs it over
iScaper1: I'm glad the video helped. Thanks for commenting.
