Help gettin a seal

Unread postAuthor: boonedog132 » Tue Aug 01, 2006 9:45 am

ok i went to bomgaars and they didn't have a 3inch end cap that would fit over the pipe...they did have one that was the exact same size as the pipe though...so i bought a little coupler... slide the pipe in one end and the cap in the other,but air keeps leaking out between the coupler and the cap. I've tried putting this silicon cocking stuff in there but ican't get anything to work..... anyone got suggestions?? thanks a bunch

there is your problem. You need to use PVC primer. After that, put on the glue, stick the two together (with a quarter turn), and give it 24 hours to cure

Who are you to talk about his grammar. Since you are not his mom, english teacher or even a moderator you have no say in his grammar. Leave it to moderators, its their jobs. So stop tryng to be a hero.

hes trying to get nominated for a DGC(Distinguished Grammar Cross)
only the best get them :lol:

i agree on pimpmanns grammar rules but i say cut down a bit e.g
1:spell correctly
2:dont need apostrophes in words like "dont"
3:dont need capitals only for acronyms
4:if its a long difficult word, google it.
5:use commas and fullstops
6:if you read your post and spell atleast two words wrong or a word really badly wrong like "fot" instead of "of"(trust me ive seen it) edit your post.

thats all i have for now
