Purchase 110mm Solvent Pipe Coupler – Double Socket & Slip Online
If you’re hoping to connect two lengths of 110mm pipe into your solvent bonded stack, you’ll need a coupler. At EasyMerchant, we’ve got a range available – including both black and olive grey – and available as either double-socket or double-socket slip variations.
Fitting a Connector or Coupler
Fitting a coupler into a stack is relatively straight-forward – as long as you’re happy working with solvent weld.
When the plain pipe you’re looking to connect or extend is at the appropriate length, you’ll need to add your coupler – before adding the next length of 110mm from the other side.
First, you’ll need to decide which type of coupler you require. If there’s limited space and you’ll struggle to manipulate the pipes you’re working with into either end of the connector, you’ll probably need to use a slip connector. A slip coupler will slide over the 110mm section completely – allowing you to move your next run into place. When located, the slip coupler can be slid back and bonded into place using solvent weld; ideal if you’re working with limited room.
Applying solvent weld
When you’ve got your pipes cut the length, you’ll need to clean the end you’re hoping to bond – before keying it slightly with a fine glass paper. When prepped – you can apply your cement and quickly get the coupler into place. If you’re working with a slip coupler – you’ll need to carry out the bonding of both ends at the same time.
When the joint is in place, rotate it slightly to make sure the cement is evenly spread to maximise the strength of the join.
When set (usually after around 20 minutes) your connection will be permanent and completely watertight – but it’s a good idea to wait around 24 hours before testing the system.
