Wow!
Never done one yet. Is it like any other connection where you run it to the main, then the town connects to the main theirselves?

Luck you. All our mains are either ductile or C900, then all the fittings are cast. Probably my least favorite job, laying water mains and hydrants.

I have done quite a bit of water and sewer main in my day. We used to subdivide land. I average me alone and and operator 250' of 8" and a fire hydrant set per day. 4' 6" deep.


Don't forget your thrust blocking on mechanical joint fittings. They WILL blow off eventually. I don't care if they are mega-lug or not. They get a "dead man"

Lately we have been using MJ x MJ x Flange tees on mains the flanged valve and flanged fire hydrant. MUCH better deal and a whole lot faster. ad you don't have to worry about blow off.
