PVC threaded fittings have 1/2 the pressure rating as the pipe and is de-rated accordingly. I've replaced countless water services with 20' bell end pvc and I have NEVER had a solvent weld joint leak on a new service. The installer can make all the difference in the world. We do not make joints under concrete slabs here on any type of potable water pipe unless its brazed coppa.
    That just about sums it up!!!

      I replaced a 2"water service using Endopure PE a year ago November. If I recall the fittings were proprietary and not cheap. I thought it was a very good product. Great idea sleeving it.

        You are making a good decision to sleeve it. You are getting quality pipe that probably won't give you any problems but you will save yourself some heartache sometime it there is a problem. I can't tell you how many times i have watched the look on people face when i have had to dig up/through their landscaping to replace a line going into their basement. Last week i replaced an 1 1/2 line going into a small apartment complex, it woulda been alot of concrete cutting if it wasnt sleeved. I always use pack joint fittings in the ground, almost no problems and they are easily adaptable to anything. They also can be takin apart after 20 years in the ground which makes replacement jobs easier.
