    Water service

    Not really hvac related, but I did this water service replacement about a year ago (my phone does the "on this day" and goes back like 4 years) and this is what the inside looked like. Too funnyName:  Screenshot_20200322-101527.png

    Ahh it showed for me now.
    Looks like they grabbed whatever they could from Lowe’s.

    It looks like they were bits and pieces from either a coworker or getting extra parts for a job. The array of materials is mind boggling.

    On the bright side it appears the meter was hooked up. And I doubt you will get any complaints about the quality of work you performed to fix that mess.

    This is how the house was, we dug a new water service from the street to the inside of the house because they froze and broke, and repiped the house. Again, this is how it was when we got there. Obviously I'm not posting pictures of bad work I did to make fun of myself, I don't know who did it

    I though " at least they didn't reuse the lead pipe" then I saw the second photo.

    I can't see any after pics. At least I hope I am looking at the before. You need to address the ground. The meter is jumped out but the fittings on both sides of the service valve are isolating the house water piping from ground.
