      Does anyone know:

      What happens if you try to use the standard Ridgid HS or alloy 12R dies to thread PVC? I assume the pitch and taper of the PVC thread is the same as galv or brass, what goes wrong with threading the PVC pipe?

        I use my standard 12-r dies to thread pvc, I do it infrequently enough that I'm not buying a special die head for it. Seems to work just fine.

        No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

          I also just use my standard dies when I need to thread PVC. I do that about once a month and never have any problems with it.

          Usually all I thread is 3/4" schedule 80 PVC. It goes so easy I can just turn the die by hand to thread it.

            Threading PVC pipe is used for mechanically joining two sections of the plastic tubing. This process is used for containing the high pressure..

                The temperature of using is not too high for the pvc pipe, othewise, it will be deformation.

                  BTW: For the first time on Friday I saw a urinal auger in a catalog. I bought it. I'm perfectly willing to wait to use it though.
                  Hey Geno can you post a picture or link to the Urinal Auger when you have a moment please............!!!!

                  Would love to have small hose that we could use to get around urinal traps without having to take them off the wall. Bill's small hose is just too long on the head

                    Use a tappered wood plug in the end to keep the pipes shape also use sch 80.

                      It will work, but the problem is that it can tear the pipe if you are using a machine Like the 300 or larger. I have ran miles of SCH. 80 for D.I. Water. Even with the plastic recommended dies it will tear the threads some times. I found that if you are using a threader with a carriage, then help the dies along a little bit. You can also start the machine with the die not engaged over a little bit of the pipe, start the machine rotating, then slowly engage the die. Always have more pipe than you need when threading PVC.
