Fitting a 110mm – 68mm round adaptor
Fitting your rainwater adaptor should be a quick and simple job – but since you’re going to be using permanent solvent weld, it makes sense to ensure you’re doing the job correctly, first time.
You’ll need to begin by prepping the ends of the cut pipes you’re working with. Solvent welds are always strong if you make sure you’ve tidied up any burrs or contaminants (ink, dirt, grease, etc) from the surfaces you’re working with.
When clean, it’s also a good idea to key the surface of the round downpipe you’re working with slightly. A fine sandpaper will do the job quickly. With your surfaces ready, you can apply your solvent cement and push the fitting into place into the round downpipe. You should rotate it backwards and forwards to make sure you get a good distribution of cement – before returning it to your intended position and allowing it to set.
How long does it take?
Your cement weld should be set solid on your rainwater adaptor within 20 minutes – but it’s a good idea to leave the whole system 24 hours to make sure all connections are watertight before testing.
