    Re: Reel gud plumming

    Gawd, don't you guys know anyting? That's called a confusulator. It's installed so that the opposing wastes come together, mix and aerate before finally discharging into the drain. The desankos insure that the entire unit can spin around 360 degrees to absorb the shock. We need more excellent plumbing like this. It keeps us busy

              Yasuda,
              A desanco is a fitting that is threaded male or female IPS on it's one side to to screw in or on cast,gal or copper adapter,it's other side is compression thread and comes with a ferrule and compression almost like slip nut.
              It's used to convert from waste rough piping to tubular pipe size.Most of the time 1-1/2.

                  Student asked me the difference between a Desanko and a male adaptor. About 90 cents. So what's a trap adaptor?
                  I love plumbing terms, its a language all it's own.

It is the same concept as calling a circular saw a Skil saw or slip joint pliers called Channellocks. Desanko's generally to me are brass trap adapters commonly used to transition from galvanized or copper pipe.

                    Thanks for the info guys.

                    Now that you mention it, I have seen guys use them here on the end of an 1 1/2" galvanized pipe for sinks. I'm thinking to myself WTF for? When all they had to do was slip the trap arm into the Galv. pipe and tighten the slip joint nut w/ washer.

                    Makes perfect sense for a Female Galv. fitting and Copper DWV. To me it is pointless to manufacture a brass adapter for the end of a threaded pipe.

                      This is a major difference with our code, we only use tubular on tailpieces - 17 gauge min.
                      Sched 15, 20 traps ("dollhouse" traps we call them)..we aren't allowed to use.
                      Geesh...now I understand why the term Desanco is so unfamiliar to you guys.
                      We use all sched 40, a Desanco is basically a sched 40 trap adapter...made to glue onto PVC or sweat onto copper/brass...the threads on a Desanco are IPS/NPT...NHMaster is right..same thing as a PVC or Brass adaptor except it has a washer and slip nut.

                          On another forum I was engaged in a "Who's on first" discussion on adapting PVC to copper stubs.
                          Guy kept saying Marvel adapter and I thought he meant no-hub coupling.
                          We call them Scully adaptors here.
                          He couldn't understand why I was saying a Marvel adaper looks alot uglier and more cumbersome over a Scully.

                            We call 'em "Trap Adapters" over here, whether its ABS, PVC, or Copper DWV.

                            For 1 1/4" & 1 1/2" galv. threaded pipe ends, we don't bother using any type of "Desanco" or "Marvel" brass fitting.

                            BTW, some of the male adapters have a smaller I.D. than the trap adapters, not allowing your trap arm to slide in. I found this out the hard way.........after i glued it on.

                                You guys don't use galvy?

                                How do you stub out for a lav/kitchen drain from a 2" NH Sanitary tap tee?

                                or you don't use NH CI?
