Loi Nguyen says:

It is a great video very impressive but I would highly recommend whoever is using this method only use schedule 40 not scheduled 20 because schedule 20 it's too thin to do it good luck with all your price. It looks easy but practice makes perfect

Belle idée bravo et merci! 👍

D M says:

The correct way to do this is the 90 up the pipe and go straight across moving pvc and wiggling it weakens the weld will work for a while but will leak again

George Xiao says:

very good, Do you have one to replace water pipe under sidewalk?

P F says:

Most clever incredibly helpful DIY hack I've seen in a while – simple and easy to do with reasonably available tools. Thanks!

Just tried this on a buried 1-1/2" sch 40 repair and it worked but, it took very hard pulling to get it to where it should, thought I wouldn't be able to get it there for minute. From this experience I would use a slow setting cement for 1-1/2" and up.

Royall Clark says:

It is a good idea but I find that my time is too valuable than to make one of these. It is far faster to spend the money to buy the repair fitting that uses no glue and to get the job done without the worry of the glues starving somewhere along the repair and have to do it over again.

James Houston says:

Dude it leaks, just buy a slip fit and a coupling. Save time and time

P J Flintstone says:

open toed flip flops are always a good choice for home repairs

Dave Fisher says:

Whoa, it really works!

jeff lebowski says:

this works for general purpose applications. however, it will create a weak point where the outer pipe transitions back down to the original diameter. i know because i just replaced a cracked pipe on which the installer had used this method. to be fair, the pipe had been stressed pretty good by growing tree roots and may well have failed eventually anyway.

Peter Pa says:

Thank you for sharing. I have been tasked to solve some of the problems to our irrigation system: we have a leak with our index valve, which is a K-Rain Hydrotek 4000 Series 3-outlet. I was advised to use "Flex Glue" or something else to stop the leak in the index valve. However, I have greater concern for the leak in the pipe underground that I discovered months ago. I am not sure I will attempt this repair – I don't have a heat gun: Please visit my channel and provide your best recommendations on a solution [I think you already did with your video]. This video shows our pump and pipe configuration and the underground pipe leak is in a difficult location shown in this video

Frank gman says:

Time consuming. Just go buy the repair coupling and be done

Oj Rathdowne says:

Thanks for the video clear easy t understand. might have to invest in a heat gun…i assume a hair dryer won't do the job?
Thanks again. I have a few issues at home that I think I will repair using what you've outlined here.
THanks again

Ann Reed says:

love it! Thank you!

Very Clever! Thanks for sharing!

Steph Lind says:

I'm wondering, though, if heating the pipe that much degrades the pvc material, then stretching it out weakens the strength/integrity of pipe even more? I realize most is reinforced by the other pipe being glued inside it, but what about at the point it goes from stretched to original size?

dukesins says:

Fantastic! Thanks for the information. 🙂

Square Bear says:

This is unfreakin believable! Thank you Man!

Can not find previous video link. Looked everywhere I know including going to your home page and scrolling through every topic that seems relevant. Don't see the url "in the description below". Moving on. A shame, you seem to have what might be usable tips, but can't start on video 2 when so much seems to be on unreachable video 1. Thanks anyway.
