    Re: Orangeburg

    Pretty sure no one still manufactures it. I love seeing the old print ads for it though.

    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

      Mine was laid in '48. I've replaced a couple of my neighbor's lines. Why mine hasn't given up the ghost is beyond me. Probably because the original owner inadvertently planted his fruit trees in locations too far away from the line for root invasion. My lateral runs through my back yard to the main, which is in a 10' wide easement that runs the length of the street dead center in the middle of the block.

        Here we see the berg all the time and it usually looks worse than that....wish I had pics the other day saw two inch orngeberg on a laundry run about 20 feet that was the first and only time I've seen any size other than 4 inch. Two way c/0 (bullhorns) very common here

          2" Orangeburg? That would make a great header for a strangest pipe thread. I think can top that.
          Hpw about 4" brass pipe with cast iron bells welded on the end?
          Or 4" wood stave pipe (formed into a tube, like a barrel)?

                  I've never seen anything other than 4" Orangeburg but I know before sewers it was used for water lines and before that it was used for electrical conduit. There is probably a lot of Orangeburg stuff I have never seen.
