Like I'm certain you are going to do on the next floor up.

You know. Tie the EMT to the rebar and have EMT stubs ready for boxes after the pour.
John. It's slab on grade in Miami Dade County. I wouldn't speak of EMT.

Take a look at these fittings by SP products.

You'll have to purchase the reaming bit in addition to the fittings

So, yes, sux to me me.
I keep seeing these in EC Magazine:

It looks like you cut off the stub, ream it out with a special tool and cement in an adaptor.
It seems a bit expensive for what it is. Like 1,600 bucks for a set.
It's a nice kit for a specific problem.

Your problem is that with the kit you'd still be installing PVC above grade.

I think I might dig up a 3/4 NPT tap and see if I can tap out some Sch 80 or 40 and get an EMT coupling in something.
