  • Snug fit?

    In trying to clean up someone else's mess, I'm looking into the feasibility of putting a 3" PVC hub clean out fitting inside a piece of 4" pipe. Anyone know if it will make a snug fit? I seem to recall that someone used to make a fitting specifically for that purpose.

    A 3" hub will fit inside a piece of 4" pipe ..I would try something else though..

      I'd like to try a Sioux Chief cleanout bushing (875-4P) but no one close by stocks them.

        Get a 4x3 flange and cut the spigot off. It will glue inside 4" pipe and a 3" male c.O. will glue inside of it.

              Every new construction plumber out here uses those Tom Kaps for clean outs. They shrink the opening of the pipe by a 1/2", limiting what you can send down the line when it's time to snake it.

                the tom kap is also sold at home depot. the opening is slightly smaller than the pipe. blades will easily flex into the 2'' deep insert and spring back open. the nice thing in the ability to cut them off flush to grade after a pour.

                  Try looking for the 875-845 C/O bushing kit,sometimes easier to find.

                    I've had multiple page lectures from online plumbers..yes online plumbers I call them.......about using 4x3 closet flanges solvent welded inside 4" pvc. Now links are being posted for c.o's that solvent weld inside of pipe and alls good.

                    So my question is....Where are all the codebook thumpers hiding?

                        It's a clean out adapter that glues inside of the pipe. see them used a lot when the plumber doesn't cut the risers off at the right height, and concrete gets poured right up to the pipe.

                          Some seem to think if you hafta solvent weld a fitting inside the pipe you should just jackhammer the floor up and "do it right".

                          Basically thay dont believe you should glue anything inside a pipe.

                          Here have a read on this thread. Read page 8,9,10 and 11 of this thread.

                            I don't mind it so much on schedule 40, but I can't make myself think it's any shade of correct on cellular core. That said, It may outlast the building it's put in, only time will tell.
