4" ductile iron valve replacement. Installed MJ sleaves and C900 cam locks on each side of the valve. Last pic is the kicker we poured behind the 90. Turned out good. I like repiping ductile and C900 its not some thing you get to see everyday.

Was that push block there when you dug it up?

Looks like you had mega-lug on all but the 2 farthest connections from the 90. I like mega-lug but, I always do like you did and put in some kind of "dead man" for insurance. One moron opening a valve too quick and she's comin apart somewhere.

Mega locks are sweet and I use the cam locks. Im like you I have full faith in the lugs but I want a little insurance. Because I dont have faith in other people turning the valve on and off. Ive seen them blow off cause they were opened too fast.
