  • Anyone have a running rope for sale?

    I have a horizontal joint I would rather re-caulk then tear out. So far I haven't located a running rope at any local wholesale house. So... Anyone here have one they would like to sell?

    Thanks.

        Give Kirk or Marvin a call, I think they have joint running rope in stock. My old man would kill me if I sold mine, they are broken in perfectly. I think I have seen clamp on joint runners at the Ferguson by me. If you have a Ferguson near you they can bring in tools and such from any other Ferguson across the nation.

              Usiong putty is great for when you have to caulk an upside down joint.

                Mephesto tool sells them. lead wool is not code acceptable here. Neither is that gray silicone.

                    I did it twice in my life time. First time on a job putting in a double hub coupling on a vent line. Second time in my plumbing class. The instructor was impressed that I already knew how to do it.

                      Was there not a thread on fourm here a few days ago on the proper use of duct tape, and cast drain pipes?

                            Thats called a cold pour and no its not proper. The oakum makes the seal. he will remove the lead and old oakum and make the joint again.
