PVC pipe repair with a coupler
I went to Guerneville today to get a PVC pipe coupler to repair the pipe I cracked with the weed eater the other day.
I bought two of them so I’d have an extra one.
Grease is the trick
The trick to using these to make the job easier is to coat the plastic threads and rubbers with petroleum jelly. Doing this makes the whole job a lot easier as the parts go together easier and things seal up quickly.

Need a tow
I chair hopped around the yard until my brother Tom came home from shopping as I needed a ride over to my broken down quad runner and a tow back to my house to see why the gas was leaking and repair it.
We rode over to one of my brother’s gardens where he checked on his chickens. He’s been having a bad problem with a bobcat getting into his chicken pens and killing a lot of his chickens. Things seemed ok today so maybe he’s figured out how to keep the cat out of his pens.
I wasn’t feeling like working on the quad runner so I had a nap instead.

Torn gas line
I was able to cut off the end of the rubber tube and put it back together and the day was about done.
