What would you like to do?
How do you stop the water so you can replace that part of the PVC pipe that goes to the bottom drain of an inground pool?
it all depends on where the pipe is. Sometimes you can just plug the hole in the pool with a rubber stopper. without knowing wher your pipe is or what kind of pool you have, …how much water, how many drains. etc.. this question may be too vague to answer If the line to the bottom drain is dedicated (a line directly to the bottom drain only), and it is the suction line as you describe, you will have to partially drain the pool, If only one suction pipe goes into the pump, the bottom drain runs through the skimmer. Plug the skimmer in the hole FARTHEST FROM THE POOL with a threaded 2" or 1 1/2" cap (whatever size your plumbing is). You'll also need to pull all of the eyeballs/returns and plug them in the same fashion (pressure side). There are rubber plugs made for all of this, too. If you have a pool cleaner you may have to plug it or close the cap also. A side note, because there's no details about your pool: if you have a 2nd line to the pool and a plug-in cleaner with a hose (like a Navigator or a Barracuda) your dedicated line is for the cleaner. Plug that also and you won't have to drain it. But if you have water features, a spa, play pool, if they run into one pump, boosters, etc. then my advice may not apply.

Answer One-quarter inch per foot is both the standard practice all around the country and the minimum slope (or grade) allowed by most codes. If maintainin…g that much slope is a problem, an exception can be requested from the administrative authority.
How do you repair a leaking drain at a leaded joint if you need to replace approx 3' rusted pipe with PVC?
Answer replacing cast iron with PVCThere is a rubber sleeve available that goes in the cast iron and then the PVC slides into it. Use a rubber outside sleeve with two hose cla…mps. You can also replace the rusted section with PVC and them "lead" them with the packing and a paste sealant that is made for this.
By cutting out the defective sections and installing new Slip couplings BUT work FAST as the glue dries FAST
Guy wants 400 to replace drain hose with PVC pipe. Says PVC wont clog with slime and back up. Ripoff or necessary fix?
PVC is good stuff, but it can get build up depending on what you pour in it. Answer Really, it is less about the design of the pipe and less about the material. The drop of t…he pipe before the elbow can make a difference in flow. It seems like unclogging the pipe would do the trick. If the problem comes back again, then reconsider replacement and redesign of the situation.
Yes, if they are the proper size to mate, or match up. yes
pvc flange if glued properly can not be detached you just need to cut it and fix up a new one if the old flange is useless. www.pvcpipe.in
Can you attach a PVC pipe to a ceramic pipe i found a crack in my sewage drain and i was wondering if i could replace a section with PVC piping?
Yes, you can attach PVC pipe to ceramic pipe with a fernco. You just have to make sure the inside diameters of the fernco match up with the pipes you are joining.
-Turn off main water supply (or supply to that pipe, if a more local shutoff is available.) Then saw out the damaged portion. - Cut an equal size piece of new PVC pipe. Dry …fit new pipe and two connector couplings to be sure the fit is good. Remove new pieces. - For each connection (each old pipe joined with a coupling, each new pipe end joined with one of those couplings): Sand cut ends lightly to remove any burring that would interfere with a tight seal.Swab outside of pipe and inside of coupling with PVC primer (usually brightly colored, such as purple or orange.)Swab the outside side of pipe and inside of coupling with PVC cement (glue).Firmly push pipe halfway into coupling, twisting slightly to ensure a good seal. - Let dry briefly before restoring water flow. - Once water is restored, check new fittings for leaks.
Is it possible to replace basement iron piping with PVC piping to help a kitchen sink drain like it's supposed to?
By replacing the piping using either Cast Iron of one of the non ferrous systems available
The only way would be some kind of mechanical connection. That is a rubber coupling known as a Robar Coupler or something like that . This is not a conventional connection and… you may have to convert your PVC up a size or two (which only means fitting a reducer) If you measure outer and inner dimensions of both pipes and take those measurements to your local plumbing wholesaler they will at least tell you what exactly you need, if not sell you it 'on the side'
Yes, but PVC creates problems
With a coupling that has a nut and beveled washer like the drain under the kitchen sink.
Pvc pipes are cheaper. They are easier to join. They last longer.
That drain pipe is meant to remove condensed water from the chmberwhere the air is blown through the system, if there is air comingthrough there it just means there is no wate…r in the line that hascondensed. many units turn the drain tube upward slightly so alittle water always stays in the pipe pereventing the escape ofcold air. It works like a P trap on your sink.
