Majority of reducers aren't rated. Just check from either a class rating above 'Class D' or a PN number like PN12

Na the gap is good enough. Unless you want it deforming on the first shot re-inforce it with hotglue and I chucked a 32mm fitting in their as well.

Alright thanks. Did you cut the top and the end off and just sit some pvc in there? Or filled the dome (bottom) with some epoxy? Im not 100% what you've done, but I can probably use two pvc disks on each end or sit them on the coupler and epoxy them on each end. are you saying you filled it with hot glue? thats alotta hotglue.

You know the bottom how its bent in on one end, I kept that and my sealing face is on that end, the other end is cut open fileled about 1/4 with hot glue then a 32mm fitting is in their for suppor. Don't use PVC disks, I did and on the first shot it shattered.
