That Was Easy!

So I mentioned the other day my tribulations with the secondary water system in our yard. The system is old and decrepit and requires my manual labor and attention every spring. It was the last leak that really caused me to worry, since it resides under a concrete slab with several hundred pounds of bricks stacked on it. Here is a picture of the broken coupling.

I still have no idea what was plugging that 1" hole for the past 6 years I've lived here. There were no broken parts in the hole when I cleared out the dirt!

The next picture was my solution to the problem. Three bucks and change at Pep Boys.

Mission Accomplished! I had to cut a screwdriver slot in the screw to keep it from turning and then it installed perfectly. Didn't leak a drop!

And disregard those bogus dates! I still have to reset my camera.
