ABS Question

Unread postAuthor: n-strike » Sat Jun 14, 2008 5:01 pm

Hi, if I did not have 1 1/2" PVC but I have 1 1/2" ABS, could I use PVC for everything except for the barrel? And if it is safe, how do I glue them together? Thanks!

Probably, if not, look at Lowes or Ace Hardware.

It will use cement, as you need to cement on the threaded adaptors, but you don't need special transition cement.

In Canada you might find it at a Home Depot, Rona and just maybe at Canadian Tire.
