    Re: Orangeburg cleanout ?

    That soil looks like PV rock. That stuff doesn't shift or compact easily and is more solid than a dried out cow pie. I bet the pipe itself, other than some roots, is in pretty good shape which is why you're willing to install a cleanout I'd bet.
    I would go with 4X4 mission CI-PL flex seal couplings and a two way. I would go easy on torquing the bands though. Might squash the pipe. Looks like maybe another 10-12" of digging to the right should give enough room to fit it in. That's my 2cents FWIW

      I would go with 4X4 mission CI-PL flex seal couplings and a two way. Then again, some good ol shielded no hub couplings might add some rigidity. Looks like maybe another 10-12" of digging to the right should give enough room to fit it in. That's my 2cents FWIW

        Here ya go Rick. This is the right one for Orangeburg. It`s a "MR 51-44"


        If you use the one for plastic on both ends you end up like this by next year


        Make sure you concrete over the fernco`s because the will leak on Orangeburg and the roots will get in

                    All Clear makes an interesting point in regards to packing concrete around the mission or fernco bands , we used to go one step further and mix copper sulfate (RD or Hercules) root killer right in to our concrete. It works as a great root deterrent when you have to repack a concrete hub.

                      If we see roots in our holes we always dump rock salt in also.
