23 years ago, ish, I had to tie into an asbestos main in SoCal. Anyone come across that?
If by Asbestos you mean Transite, which is Asbestos reinforced concrete, then yes. We have a lot of that around here. I slowly cut it with a sawzall using a coarse wood blade and have someone wet the joint with a spray bottle or pouring from a bucket. It's the one time I am okay with leaving old pipe in the trench.

That said it rarely fails. That stuff is impressive.
