Valve Box installation
Dig a hole for the valve box that is larger than the box, as the pipes will need to be taken into the valve box area. Once the hole is the correct depth, compact the earth and lay a weed suppressant mat at the bottom to keep dirt and roots out of the box. Level the box with the surrounding area, bringing the pipes into the bottom and fit any valves or manifolds. Back fill and compact the soil around the valve box and put 25mm of small stone gravel in the base to aid drainage. After testing fit the lid and bolt down.
