So this is a 3x3x3x2x2 Charlotte 418 fitting.
It is leaking and I cannot find this fitting in stock anywhere. Any suggestions?
I am NOT a plumber. I work for a licensed Plumbing Company and this was a hot topic yesterday at work. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for another way around this if we cannot get that 3x3x3x2x2? I would like to go to work Monday and at the very least, sound somewhat knowledgeable! LOL
Thanks for your help,
Maureen

......... Any suggestions?
I am NOT a plumber............
This site is only for plumbers. Have one of your coworkers who is a plumber come here, post a thorough introduction in the appropriate thread, and then they can ask for our help.

I will mention, you should call the manufacturer.

All you need to do is fill the crack with a liberal amount of hydraulic cement and it will never leak again,or heat plastic up until it is flowing hot and cover crack with molten plastic,both ways work equally well and are eazy peazy

Seriously???? Are you blowing smoke up that poor ladies ass here?/ PVC does not melt that way.......
now that is just evil and wicked advice to give someone...

I might go as far as to tell her to dry out the fitting with a heat gun and then you could seal that crack with a whole tube of silicone
and a rubber glove and smear it on real thick al around l the joint and let it set up for a day or two before using.

I have had to do this in rental properties before.. because the landlord was a cheap ass...
