Thanks for removing the information from my post. I just did not think.
Well taken.

Outdoor faucets


Correct, and thanks again for help.

I got a reply from Kevin Cantrell with Yard Faucets but he did not give a price for the yard faucet pictured.

He did say that the ground key stop waste valve is no longer allowed by code, he thinks. He said the yard faucets did the same thing. They allow water to drain back out of the line when the faucett is cut off from the meter and faucett opened up so it can get air.

I don't need and actually don't want an elaborate ornate faucett in my shrubbery. I just use pvc with a regular faucett and then cut a piece of 6 inch PVC the size I want it and put it around the 1/2 inch pvc pipe and fill it with spray insulation and then spray paint the 6 inch pvc a brown shade to blend in with the mulch. That way it is hardly noticeable.

Thanks

Now I just have to go to the plumbing supply house and see if they have this type valvel. I bet they do because you can order them on line but they are rather expensive. The ones I want are made my Mueller Valve.

Question

Outdoor faucets


I have now filed another report on this so called pool contractor (Mountain Brooke Pools) with the Chattanooga BBB. I had filed one some time ago so I went to their site and searched under his name -Frank Giaimo- and his name did come up but no complaint listed. Evidently they did not follow through with the complaint but did list his name in their data base.

I file another offical complaint against him and his so called company and also listed the other names he went under such as Spray Deck.

The site said they would keep me informed as to the progress.

Maybe this way at least when someone searches him with the BBB his name and hopefully my complaint will show up.

All I asked for was return of my original pool light that he removed and took with him.
For him to take back and refund my 800.00 for the Hayward Color Logic light and controller (which he took back to swap for a 12 volt one and never gave to me).
And, fix the cracks in my plastered pool bottom that happened because he allowed the plaster to dry out before he filled pool with water.
And, apply the PPG Xylene Color Seal to the knock down finish that he finally put on my driveway and porch that will match what he did to my garage floor.

All of which I have already paid for.

Wish me luck.

Tom

"Yard hydrant"... that's why I love this site, I learned something completely new (to me) and useful for my clients once or twice a week.

For future reference, here is a link to the Installation instructions for a typical freeze proof yard hydrant.

Sorry about that, DM, and thanks.

Tom, we did the foundations and framed Colonel Harwich's place and the house next door (Sellers?). Years ago, we built that storage shed up by John and Wanda's house and turned it into a mother-in-law's apartment about a month ago. Also did a lot of work getting their restaurant ready, and since the tornado hit, cleaning up all those trees that got smashed. And yes, we've worked some with Rick and his son. Actually, we built that house on Indian Avenue in Rossville his boy lives in now, too.

I'll stop by some time when I get back from working on this barn, and we can chat some more.

Yeah, me too. I know I wish I had found this site before I spent 4500.00 to have my sprinkler system installed. The yard faucets would have been fixed differently. I would have had him install a boiler type valve in the sprinkler pit so when I cut the meter off and blew out the lines then I could also open the boiler faucett and open the yard faucets along with the one that fills my pool and let in air so the water would drain down.

Well we live and learn and enjoy this forum.
