I'm going to replace the main water shutoff valve that feeds my house. The 1" PVC water line comes up thru the ground and then threads into 1" copper (that's the part I'm going to alter). I may have to cut off some of that 1" PVC and reglue a threaded connector
What is confusing me is that there is 10mil Calpico vinyl tape wrapped around the 10 inches that come out of the ground. Is this normal? Is it required by code? Is it there to protect the PVC from UV damage?
