I am guessing by this article that Atlanta has a problem?
The plumber completed the job today! The last picture is how the plumber connected the pex to the copper and used one of my buckets. Not really sure what I expected but a bucket?
The second picture shows where the copper pigtail ends and the pex line (3/4″) starts. The pex then runs straight up from where the black top and the dirt touch, then it goes around the equipment room and in. It ended up that the water line was pvc and not copper.
