I don't do PVC DWV but in repairs I use rain or shine, unless I get into the larger sized pipes then I will you the gray fast setting glue. Never really use the clear or the others. You have a favorite type?
1 1/2" = 3/4"On a side not, Duct tape placed 1/4" from where hub will end up makes purple primer look downright pretty when you peel it off. Plus there's no doubt if the fitting is bottomed out on the pipe.
I will!Can't argue wit da catalog:whistling2:
I was taught that it is 7/8". But some time ago I noticed it wasn't that anymore. Cut a 1 3/4" piece of 2" pipe and glue two fittings together with it. There will be a 1/8" gap every time. I am almost positive it didn't use to be that way.
Recently it's been a lot of Mueller and a bit of Nibco. HD Supply carries Charlotte Pipe fittings but lately they have been crazy expensive. I can go to Lowes and buy Charlotte Pipe fittings for about 60% of HD's price lately. I don't do that so I turned to a different source. Never made the connection to the out of spec fittings. Now I need to evaluate my buying practices for PVC fittings. Hmmm...What brand fitting are you using?
Charlotte fittings stay pretty true to the catalog specs, others, notsomuch.
Mueller and Lasco are notorious for under spec fitting hubs, Nibco is in and out, but the ASTM specs for the hub is 7/8".
