Main Line Repair

A few weeks ago the main water line across the street broke. It was repaired, and life returned to normal.

The rains came after 144 days without. The other day I noticed that it was wet in the front yard.
I had to dig a bit.
Main1
Yes the dirt is every bit as grey as you see it. When I got down to the line I discovered the problem. The PVC had failed in the joint. Small leak, but here in the desert water is important.

Main2
My son had stopped by for something else, but pitched in.
Main3
Among the treasures was this 4 foot 2×4 buried about an inch down, Plastic sheeting and other assorted garbage.
Main4
A trip to the hardware store, for a coupling between the copper line and the PVC, a short length of PVC and a PVC Coupler made short work of the problem.
Main5
I will leave it open for a day or two before I bury it,

Media Wall Built in

Dale Austin has a nice pictoral on building a media wall in his house.
I like the dowel deal for establishing a horizontal on the floor.
