We used to put our glue in a cardboard box with a 500 watt lamp to keep it warm beside my step ladder doing condos in the winter. We'd rotate several "brush in the can" pots

Maybe warm the bands in a similar fashion?

Also over here is you install bands on cast iron when its cold they will all leak when it warms up. It doesn't matter if you torque them more they are going to leak.

Both. Yes, most clamps on top, but It didn't seem to make a difference for the few that were not.

My guys spent a good day going around readjusting and making sure every clamp was properly tightened. Found a few where the metal shield was completely missing. As of right now it's holding and the inspector is on his way.

So far, the 4" has been the most finicky.

We did, 2- months before we even started installing it. Their replies were about as useless as yours...

Don't just call the rep, get his ass out on the job site. Use your wholesaler as leverage. I'd be in the manager's office about to blow a gasket just to let him know I'm serious. The rep is there to help. If all else fails, I'd call tech support at Orion. If you are following manufacturer's instructions, it's on them to figure out what is going wrong.

We actually met with the reps at our shop previous to starting the work. Our crew, another crew doing hospital work and our pre- fab shop. We discussed installation procedures and potential problems. They acted like it was a leak free product and didn't have much to offer. We got it now and should be fine the rest of the project. We still have to run quite a bit of 4" and 6" to the neutralization tank. Just one floor contains 37 lab sinks and 16 fume hoods. I'd be weary of someone who says they've installed that much AW without any problems.

We were able to complete the rest of the acid waste down to the basement with less problems. Just keeping your connections square and bands warm on cold days helped a lot. Still had a few leaks though. Thankfully the testing is pretty much over. I appreciate all your responses. Now, hopefully everything is roughed in correctly. The islands, have water, drain & gas. The fume hoods do as well.
