The big stuff towards the end is outside in a parking lot of the building. Changed some of the main and reconnected area drains. Mix of gaskets and lead joints. Couldn't find enough 10 inch gaskets for some reason. Inside underground plumbing work is all lead and oakum.

I assume you plumb in Chicago. I didn't know they allow gaskets? If so, why use lead at all?
I went back and took a close look and didn't see any gaskets.

Why the 1/8 bend offsets in the horizontal runs? Somebody trying to avoid a little digging?

Philadelphia. Gaskets are allowed outside only. We called 5 supply houses and nobody had enough 10 inch gaskets. Inside is still lead and oakum underground.

Floor drains I didnt account for during sawcutting. Kicked the main over so I didn't have to sit a trap on top of it.
