Who knew there was different thread pitches for fire hydrants and associated hoses.

That is a $20 adapter we didn’t have this morning. What we did have was two 50’ sections of the brass fitting hoses on right and a 50’ section of the grey threaded, a call into the warehouse “manager” and he sends a guy out with another nozzle for great thread hose and 100’ grey thread hose. A trip to Plumbers warehouse and luckily the guy knew what’s up, called his old coworkers from 10 years ago, then they said they didn’t have it but another place would. So we got it.

Also other things happened that prevented us from starting, so in 12 hours (8:30AM CST) that House should be in the basement, and digging it out and putting in the boxes.
