She’s over 90 yrs old and the problem only happened once, so she could be slipping a little. Or I’m slipping and missed the problem. 🤣🌈✌
👍 well, she had a problem and called you out. And you came out and fixed a problem. Whether or not those are the same problems well that's kind of funny isn't it? Pretty cool and the neighbors were out.

I explained it to her as “ I tested several of the most common possibilities and your plumbing passed those tests “. “ If this becomes a reoccurring issue then we will revisit the water heater as it could be a part that’s only malfunctioning intermittently “

Has anyone used one of these ?

I’m installing a 1.5” sch 40 pvc water main for a house and need to transition from pvc to the meter. The meter is 1” mip. So I was going to use this and a 1.5” x 1 “ red brass bell reducer.
Thats pretty cool if used smaller stainless fip adapters and liked that, whqt keeps the pvc sealed to the brass?

There’s no practical advantage to that. I’ve checked.
Just recall the issue I had with that sioux chief 3/4 cpvc wing ell. Their copper quality doesn’t seem to be the best. Sch80 male. No issues. Done and done.

It’s made from DZR lead free brass, it’s not copper. The metal and pvc is sealed with an EDPM oring.

Sch 80 fittings are only stronger if they’re solvent welded. Threaded adapters are not stronger at the threads.

I've used those in the past on a few of the large homes. They worked well at the time of install and I never heard of any issues with them since.

I’ve seen the rings for it but never used it. I have used 2” uponor a bunch. Uponor goes up to 3”.
We run pre-insulated 3" Uponor for buried steam lines.

“I need 2 gas lines capped and a price on a repipe”

You need more than that brother. How about a permit to start, and making sure the structure is safe for entry. We’re not capping anything. We can disconnect from the meter, that happens to be locked off. Because that existing gas pipe is also coming out. I fear for any dumbass That plays along with this guy.
