Thats called a double detector check. One valve is the cities and the other is private (Owners) and the silver bullet in the middle is a check valve so that there is no way contaminated water could make it back to the city supply. That is an eight inch set up. Imagine the water volume coming out of that.

Pretty sweet. What kind of line is that you're tapping into? What kind of pipe, I mean?

Yes it is Transite or AC or asbestos or whatever you want to call it. That one is a 16 inch main and I did two taps on it, both are 8".

Nice pictures. I hung two ceiling fans today and took a two hour nap, but not worthy of posting like this work!

Wow, that's nuts. I can honestly say you rarely see people speeding through work zones in Texas.
