  • Weird CPVC ?

    Ok here's the skinny I have a CPVC sample ( have not been on the job site yet)

    The wall thickness is ok But this stuff measures .681 too big for 1/2 too small for 3/4

    What is it and anyone have some transition fittings ?

    Thanxx in Advance

    CPVC has its own fittings and those fittings will allow transitions to MIP or FIP fittings. It is off size to PVC and is not the same pipe.

        It would be better for everyone that touches that job to get real CPVC

          No manufacturer's stamp on it ?

          Years back the Genova company produced some very odd size pvc pipe so it may be theirs though I can't recall if they did cpvc or not

              It almost looks as a little sanding on the exterior of the normal and a little round file on the wierd and the 2 should glue together without a fitting. That's crazy.

                Are you sure those dimes are the same size? Just kiddin. But looks way too different to sand down. Man the things we run into.

                        I think NHMaster is correct that the one on the right is PVC pipe.

                        I unfortunately run into 1/2" PVC fittings glued onto 3/4" CPVC pipe fairly often out here. I know it's an oddball size, but a quick google search says there are companies that make 3/8" PVC pipe. That would be about the correct size for the pipe in your picture.
