I used this flexible coupling to the downspout pop in aluminum adapter and coupled it with a 3" hoseand to a 2" PVC to catch rainwater from my roof and was very happy to say it did the job more that I imagined because I could tilt the direction of the PVC just a little bit to the location of the catch drum opening.
I needed to clean out the condensate drain from my A/C and had to cut into the 3/4 in PVC line to get to the problem. This was perfect for sealing up the line and allows me to get back in again in the future if/when it clogs again!
Makes the Difficult Easy
Fernco connectors are an amazing product for repairing or installing drain pipes. I only discovered them about 16 months ago. They are incredibly simple to use, they save much time when compared to other solutions, and they are an excellent value. For my application, I needed to replace a defunct dehumidifier. To remove the old one, the easiest solution was just to cut the 3/4" PVC drain pipe. Then to install the replacement, all I had to do was slip the 3/4" Fernco connector over one end of the cut PVC pipe, hold the two parts together, center the Fernco over the cut in the PVC pipe, and then tighten the screws on the two clamps. The screws are tightened to 60 in. lb. I have never had a connector leak when torqued to the specification. The connector is especially well designed. It has shallow trenches for each clamp so that they will stay put when installing the connector. (See the photo). The picture in the HD listing is inaccurate. The 3/4" connectors are gray not black. Since my epiphany, when wanting to purchase a Fernco connector for various projects, I have gone to several HD stores in this area and asked an associate in the plumbing department, “where are your Fernco connectors?” The answer has always been, “never heard of such a thing.” Every HD associate and customer should be aware of this nifty product.
We needed a way to route multiple PEX tubes through a crawl space under a building. The idea of using sections of schedule 40 3" PVC DWV tubing was more or less obvious. The problem were that three lengths were required to span the distance, the space was only accessible from each end, and the line between the end point accesses is not straight due to intervening building supports. We needed to be able to push the pipe in from one access point, angling it as it passed through the crawl space to the other. These fittings were perfect, allowing us to push the DWV tubing while allowing the necessary changes in direction as the tubing was pushed under the building.
