|In response to Re: Why do they call it a "street elbow"|
The thing left out of the expanation was that the water and gas mains were usually located in the street, so that is the reason they were called "street" ells.
: I was told this many years ago when I asked the same question.
: Back in the good old days before tapping saddles and corporations were used to connect water lines from the mains to the water meter, direct connections were made.
: This was the general idea I was given many years ago.
