I used to help my dad repair ductile mains when I was a kid. He took care of the water and sewer in our town. I guess I was destined for a life working in ****. He had me take the descaler and do the "shoeshine" on the underside of the pipe and we would put the repair clamp on and torque it down and bam, water's back on to the rest of the block. Fun in the summer, sucks in the winter.
