Re: [Humor] Cable Install

That fitting looks appropriate, to me, for a vent pipe. What is "right" for a pipe used for this service?

A glued fitting, i.e. »www.hardwareworld.com/Coupling-A···0UR.aspx

Thanks, is that a code requirement? I know that hubless connectors are often used even for the wet side of pipes, where clamps are used to hold onto the outside of pipes. I'm just wondering why they can't be used in this application, where there should be very little pressure.

BTW, I did know that glued fittings were available, but still wonder if the hubless are somehow inferior for a non-pressurized application.

No, a Fernco or hubless connector could be a perfectly acceptable fix for this on a DWV system...

EDIT - and to be honest, would probably be the only option to fix this, unless there's enough play in the stack to get a glued in coupling into place...

EDIT 2 - As robbin See Profile pointed out - codes vary... Where I am - it would be acceptable...

I think it depends on the area whether it is acceptable or not. Many areas don't allow them unless they are accessible. In other words, it couldn't be covered with sheetrock inside a wall.

Around here you can couple older cast iron to PVC pipes underground with them, and then bury them.

Can't you guys just laugh at the damn picture instead of figuring out 50 ways of acceptance?

Buried underground is different than being buried inside a wall.

Nope, this is the Home Improvement forum after all.

What? NO WAY!

I was next going to bring up if the size of the hole through the pipe was sufficient, or if the installer should've used a bigger diameter bit.

Bigger is always better!
