I have been told pvc glue will not work on this pipe, it cannot be glued to pvc pipe using a pvc ...

Asked by gene August 21, 2018

YES - It can indeed be be cemented into PVC fittings! I used PVC primer first on the pipe and the female fitting. I then used PVC cement on the pipe and the female fitting. Because the external surface of the pipe is not rigid/solid like PVC pipe, the pipe has a tendency to want to back-out of the fitting - it kinds "slips" or "slides" its way backwards out of the fitting. The trick I learned was that once the pipe is cemented into the fitting as described above, I hold the fitting and the pipe together for about 1 minute to 2 minutes. That does the trick. The pipe adheres to the fitting and it won't slip back out and makes a permanent bond with the fitting. It is not an instant pipe-to-fitting bond like you get with rigid PVC pipe. This takes just a little more patience, but it really works great! I rerouted/relocated 8 underground sprinklers using this pipe and it works perfectly! I was able to turn/bend the pipe and set the sprinkler riser fitting in its new location. I then filled the trench in with dirt and it stayed put. Hope this helps!

Is this item bendable? That is hold its shape when flexed?

Answer

steve, this product is good for up to 80 psi with cold water (meaning 70 degrees Fahrenheit) and intermittent pressure. It is not for use under constant pressure, as it is intended for repair applications downstream of your irrigation valves. Should you have further questions, please feel free to contact our Support team at 1-800-488-6156, and we'd be happy to help. Thanks!

is this sch 40 pvc

Asked by Gasman April 2, 2015

I'm pretty sure it is NOT sch 40 PVC. It really doesn't have a "schedule" rating, as far as I know. It is NOT designed for constant pressure like rigid PVC is. This pipe is exclusively designed for relatively-low-pressure intermittent water systems, primarily for underground irrigation. The irrigation pump pressure or the house's water pressure can "escape" through the sprinkler heads, as such, the pipe is never under the full house or pump pressure. When the irrigation is turned off, the internal pressure of this pipe is then zero PSI. It is designed for "open" water systems, that is, not domestic water supply purposes in which the pipes are always pressurized when all the valves are closed. It was designed to fit into standard PVC fitting for convenience sake, but was not designed to be under constant pressure. Almost all older underground irrigation systems use some form of PVC piping as the main vessel for carrying the water to the sprinklers. This pipe was designed to accommodate standard PVC fittings simply to make it easier to get to hard-to-reach places that rigid PVC can't easily go. That's why you find this flex PVC pipe in the irrigation/sprinkler aisle at Home Depot. Hope this helps!

IS THIS THREADED ON THE OUTSIDE ENDS?

The pipe has straight ends so you can attach any fitting you desire (threaded or slip).

Leaks! Too large for standard barbed fittings.
I used this to spice together with some other flexible pipe. I noticed that it went on too easy to the barbed fittings, so I wasn't surprised they leak.

Bends and glues up. Great for irrigation breaks or changes where enough can be dug up to allow this to bend in place.
