Questions & Answers

Can this be used for a main lie pipe replacement when the original cap thread is stripped?

Can this be used for a main lie pipe replacement when the original cap thread is stripped?
Asked by: DEBRA
Yes, I would not see a problem at all. Mine is under pressure and had no issues.

I purchased the same size test plug that was outside where the washer drains, but the plug does not stay in the opening!

I had a larger plug that did not fit.
Asked by: TC
To properly seat the plug, you must check that the wingnut is loosened, then push said plug into the end of the pipe until you no longer see that black rubber washer, then you tighten the wingnut clockwise until you can no longer pull the plug out, after several attempts, if the plug does pull out or able to be removed, then that center shaft must be damaged inside and said plug is out of commission.

what is the minimum and maximum drain diameter for this plug?

what is the minimum and maximum drain diameter for this plug?
Asked by: Kraj
Minimum and Maximum are both 3 inches internal diameter or ID, one could also engineer with outside materials and make a rubber spacer to temporarily use on a 4 inch pipe, anything larger would take some inguenity.

When doing remodeling it can be necessary to have drain pipes open for a few days. This particular plug is for 3 inch ID pipes usually found in areas like a toilet. It's important to cap off these 0ipes for a couple reasons. 1. To prevent average from backing up in the pipe. And 2 more overly to prevent gasses from coming up through the pipes as methane and raw sewer age is not a pleasant smell or healthy.

This is so much better than the standard screw in style. Easy to fit in the hole and screw the wing nut to tighten. It was not too hard to turn at all. Looks well made and I believe it will last. The yellow color is easy to spot, but could be painted if you didn't want it to be easily seen. This is a great plug.

For a simple plugging device, this unit is very well made of heavy duty durable materials. I really like the fact that this plug is designed to be very easy to disassemble giving the user access to all the components for cleaning or replacement of worn parts if necessary. The metal parts appear to be stainless steel which will be long lasting and corrosion resistant.

Plug fits well and is easily expanded to provide a solid seal when installed. The large wing nut made an easy firm fit with no leaking. The dynamic plug can be used on 3" PVC pipe for minor to medium pressure. This plug can be used to test pipe for low air preasure drop testing and gravity water leak detection. It is a simple device for a very specific use.

This mechanical plug is super easy to use, super strong and seems to hold great. The wing nut makes tightening and losing extremely easy to handle without having to go find any wrenches or other tools. The rubber seal seems to be very well made and seals extremely well. I would fully recommend this item to anyone in need of a 3 inch ABS mechanic plug.

I tested it on 3" ABS and 3" Ridged pipe and it tightened properly in both cases. The label on the top says to "Stand Clear While In Use". Depending on the use, the plug can become a projectile if you pressurize the attached pipe. The force on the plug is 7.1 time the pressure behind it. If this was a 50 psi system (house water pressure) you would have over 350 pounds of pressure driving a 0.6 pound plug. That is going to be fast and dangerous at close range. My use for this plug is as a cover for a vertical drain so that water, rain, trash, or animals cannot get into the pipe when it is sealed. In my case, for outside use, the maximum pressure would be the atmosphere at 15 psi or a force under 80 pounds on the plastic top if the pipe was under a vacuum condition (water trying to drain out while sealed). I will still tighten it so that the seal takes the load in addition to the plastic rim. The last use would be for the bottom of a swimming pool. Now the pressure is determined by the depth of the water. My calculations would expect 8.3 pounds of pressure for every 33 inches in depth. 5 foot deep pool would be about 116 lbs against seal and plastic. Nice product.

Temporarily or permanently plug or cap off the end run of a pipe, to test or inspect the pipe diagram for possible leaks, these gripper plugs can be used in applications including DWV (drain, waste and vent) testing and stack testing, the end-of-pipe design seals only at the end of a pipe, therefore one must plug the other end or side of the system to be tested, with a cherne test ball or plug of sorts.
