  • I Think I found 2 tools Rick doesn't have (maybe)

    I have a job where the womens 8" pipe pvc is oval and digging it up she can not afford so I was looking and found these items in Oregon.

    it says available in steel for 4" and 6" but I don't see them priced or pictured, but they do have the 8" I may need.
    And the second tool I think looks cool is

      The rounder I think will work but the pipe leveler I would think it would just resettle but I don't actually know they say it wont.

        my pipe burster looks very similar to the rerounder. i can't picture the foam core pipe holding out without shattering.

        what happenes when there is a turn or offset in the pipe?

        i would also think that the fill would have to be sand and not heavy clay dirt.

          I don't know.Once PVC sits like that it developes a memory.Plus the lack of proper soil encasement(sand,gravel,etc.) may more than likely will cause a re-emergence of the existing problem.

          How old is the line.Will it split.

            I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

              It looks line this is for the original contractor to repair minor deflections. The key seems to be high ground water (or tons of wetting) and and the proper granular fill to begin with. It will only correct pipe which has a deflection of less than 30% or less than less than 1 5/8" in a 6" pipe.

                I think this is for the sewer and water (underground utilities) contractor who puts in all the services for a subdivision and then can't pass his deflection and grade inspections because he didn't do it right the first round. Maybe these tools would work in new pipe with fresh bedding but other than that ...............

                  I had never heard of these kinds of tools before. Thank you!!

                  I wonder if the sag remover has ever been tried on clay.

                    Yea I posted them because I had never heard of them but it seems like most already knew of them. The Rick title was I figured he would have the first prototype and the latest version lol.

                      i didnt even bother to look at the links... (much) i'm with that other guy at red lobster on this one... the rerounder, maybe... the sag lifter I just don't buy. and I bet both are heavily dependent on having loose soils.

                      but

                      8"....

                      who has an 8" service? am I even reading this right?

                      what needs and 8" sevice? that's main territory. and if it only corrects 30% deflection, and her (what is she? queen of a small city?) 8" service won't work when squished down to 6", then she's either got enough people using it that they can chip in and pay to dig it and do it right, or there are other issues.
                      This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
