Look carefully at this picture........... its a waste pipe catching a leak, piped to a drain. Stupid idea right? ok, this is why.
Leak is BEFORE the internal stopcock
The water main is being replaced TOMMOROW from the main in the street
The main is LEAD
The outdoor stopcock is 3 FEET down, and snapped off
The client needs water in the morning so i cant pinch it off
So this WAS the best solution!
