. Start stubbing up out of slabs with rigid , and you'll rarely have they problem . They may get bent , but nothing a hickey can't fix .MtJT7 said:It's winter here and half of them are covered in inches of ice. I get to chip em all out and get couplers on them. Lol. Wish me luck to get them all working!
How cheap is it to chip conduits out all day. Spend a couple bucks and walk away. One and done contractors go belly up every day.
piperunner said:Well you don't have to chip out pvc stubs anymore Carlon makes a tool for that . You buy the kit from 1/2" to 1 1/4" pvc you drill into the pvc with this special cutter they make . Then from Carlon they have a pvc special coupling that goes inside the conduit you glue it and you done its a UL listed fix . We never use factory 90 s on any slab we prefab our own at the shop and we never have lost a stub during dirt work because it gives when hit and the length of the stub if its hit during concrete pouring by a pump hose or stepped on by idiots it bows but the coupling will not come apart . factory 90 s are a waste of money and a problem you have two couplings close together your just looking for trouble . Plus we always have a man or two to watch the pour with boots on in the mud .Think about the cost in labor or just get the tool it takes 5 minutes to fix it .:laughing: Don't listen to me iam just a monkey pipe guy
Does it reduce the i.d of the pipe?
I've done a lot of tip up wall new construction in this fashion. Every concrete panel has a page of prints for device boxes and conduits. Stub outs obviously aren't an option so you gotta get it flush. I've had way more success with PVC couplings over FAsBig John said:Never done it, but I've heard of guys stopping stubs and putting threaded couplings on right at floor height, then plug the end of the coupling. As long as you've got good locations you find them after, and thread in your connectors or nipples to get above finished floor.
Well it doesn't matter what you use female or a coupling if you need to change over you must use a female . Weed wacker string works on anything box stubs coupling females even block outs below concrete .I've done a lot of tip up wall new construction in this fashion.
