Questions & Answers

What diameter does this inflate to?

What diameter does this inflate to?
Asked by: TJS
Unrestrained, it will blow up like a balloon, but I have no idea how effective it would be in sealing pipe larger than 4". Have used mine several times in 4" pipe for which it designed, and find it a very good product.

will this seal when inserted in the middle of a DWV Tee?
Asked by: jdp
Yes, You'll need to feed it up into the pipe and the ring will set inside the female opening. You need the extension to remove pressure without putting your body parts inside the pipe. If its an open pipe under test the plug may come out, make sure no one is in the path of an open pipe.

4 in. Rubber Test Ball Plug is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.

The plain 4" would be fine if no turns need to be negotiated, but to make turns in a 4" pipe, the smaller diameter multi-size is required and it can still be inflated to plug a 4" pipe. It is more expensive but necessary. Benefit from my learning experience.

Definitely get the extension hose for inflating and safe removal. The Cherne is well made and the big ring fits into the female coupling so you don't loose it down the hole. Chain is about 12" long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flood insurance I have used these plugs at work.Whenever theres a chance of rain when its high tide we put these plugs in the floor drains.I bought one for my house just in case of a Sandy type flood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from test your plumbing system for leaks This is necessary when having your new drain, waste, or vent lines inspected by a inspector, who will want the plug inflated at the end of the line and filled completely with water to check for leaks. You can also do this to your existing system to satisfy your own interest. Although these come in different sizes this 4" will be for your 4" waste line. What I like is that it is made of seemingly quality rubber and has a decent-sized chain to remove easily. What I don't like is that the air fitting is close to the body making it difficult to fill with and let out air. It would be easier if it had the fitting connected by a long tube that the longer test plug utilize. Because of this and because of the price difference, I would consider this a homeowner, single use, or very occasional use for someone in the trades. Any more than a couple times a year use and I would recommend upgrading to the longer, better-performing one.
