Pipes & pucks
Don't they make these in 3"??
That is because the lawyer is grasping at straws...I would cut the 3" and install a new 12" section of pvc and 2 no hub bands.
I just had a lawyer call me and ask me if I wanted to be an expert witness, a cabinet installer in a new house put 3 holes in a pvc drain, a plumber was hired to make a repair, he used epoxy, stated it in his invoice, it leaked over 5 years and caused a huge amount of damage in the walls and back of these cabinets, etc. the sewer smell was around for a year, multiple people came out and looked, could not find the issue, I don't know all the particulars, but I do know that the plumber is now getting sued by the homeowners.
I would not want something like that coming back to bite me, especially 5 years down the road, all because it wasn't done right.
I didn't take the expert witness gig, don;t have the time.
One of my friends has done that as well... :laughing:I have a "friend" who glued 3/4's of a coupling on a sch 40 storm sewer he accidentally sawcut the top couple inches of.
"He" applied primer and glue to both pieces and snapped the split coupling onto the pipe.....
I would never do that personally:whistling2:
He is suing the plumber that made the epoxy repair.That is because the lawyer is grasping at straws...
Why didn't the lawyer call the second guy that did the final repair?
This guy's 100% right. Don't shortcut when charging good money. I've done that repair countless times and each and every time I cut it out and replace the section of pipe. I've never melted or welded plastic it personally it doesn't sound appropriate IMO. Not in this case anywaysSimplePlumber said:If it's for a customer, cut it out and repair.
For yourself, any one of the many rumored quick fixes listed here may work out just fine.
I used "rumored" to provide a tongue-in-cheek word for all of the posters saying they knew a "friend" doing quick temporary fixes. I wasn't saying anything about any particular one of them.Hot aie plastic welding is not a "rumoured quick fix". I had to employ it under supervision of the local inspector numerous times.
For the right application, it's worth its weight in Canadian Loonies!
Easy jobWhat would you say is the best way to repair a leak in a 3" pvc stack in a wall that is leaking from 2 screw holes about 1" apart caused by the closet hanger system?
Cut the pipe and install a no hub?
Clean the holes and roll glue into them?
Why are you going back so far to post on, 9 years is long ago,Easy job
we get tons of them nails , screws & A/C guys drilling through our pipes
after we dig the concrete from around the pipe we clean the hole or holes with clear primer next we hot Glue the holes than we wrap the area with aluminum tape. a nice neat lifetime fix
or you an make a snap cover with a piece of 3" PVC pipe primer & glue
