just a general question about pvc fittings

Unread postAuthor: cork9 » Wed May 09, 2007 6:43 pm

How tight should the fit bettwen a fitting and the pipe be. mine are hard to put together all the way to the shoulder. and when i do they are very hard to get out. Is this normal? Do i need to sand it down?

No you don't need to sand it down. when you solvent weld it you should hit it with a rubber mallet. This will get the pipe down into the fitting.

I never turn the pipe (i've never even heard of that :oops: )and i've never had a leaky connection
You will undoubtably have no leaks, especially with a fit as tight as you describe :)

Turbohacker I have noticed that you always do half ass jobs and since they don't fail on you, you claim them as law!
You are supposed to turn the pipe for a reason.

Just like you said you don't need to wait for your pipe joints to cure for 24 hours.

Unlike you I dislike having and endcap blow out and seriously hurt someone or solvent welding a gun and having it leak through a 20$ fitting.

I don't "dis" on his so called art, I just state that he is wrong.
