I need to rant The 3rd fitting just blew out in the pvc hose bib supply line that I installed 15 years or more ago. I guess I could take a chance on good USA made fittings, but since I'd have to essentially replace to entire line anyway to replace all those "big box store" fittings, I'm going with copper. I've already opened the trench. End of rant. Be careful cutting roots. I had one pesky root that was in my way. It was a real tough little sucker. When I finally was able to cut through it, I discovered that it was really a power line for my low voltage lighing.
