"Using PVC pipe to punch under sidewalks"

From: Garald Smalling  garald@ci.tigard.or.us

Instead of digging under a curb or sidewalk, dig trench up to both sides, use any lenght of 1/2, or 3/4" PVC pipe, a male threaded connector and screw onto a garden hose. Use the pipe with the water on to punch under the curb or sidewalk. Works best in loose soils. the threaded connector may then be cut off, and leave the pipe in place for the wiring task.
