Installation steps


Step 1 - Cut the PVC pipe and install it


When installing PVC pipe joints, it is important to ensure that the size or diameter of the pipe and pipe joints can complement each other. Pipes need to pass through the appropriate pipe joints, only the perfect fit can play the role of the pipe to prevent the pipe from leaking. Before connecting the pipe to the coupling, you first need to measure the pipe first. Then use a hacksaw to cut the pipe and clean all the inner edges of the shavings and burrs so that they do not cause any obstruction to the coupling installation. Sanding paper is required to clean the edges of the pipe after the cutting is completed.


Step 2 - Clean up the pipeline


First use sandpaper to clean the edges of the pipe to make it smooth and complete. Next, you need to use a universal pipe cleaner to clean the pipe and remove excess stubborn dirt from the pipe. This step is still very important, because if the dirt is not removed, the dirt on the edge of the pipe will bring a series of problems.


Step 3 - Apply cement


After cleaning everything, prepare the cleaned pipe and PVC pipe joints to bond them to each other. Before you do this, it's important to know that PVC cement needs to be applied very quickly, so you need to handle it with a quick hand. Cement the inner surface of it and quickly insert the PVC pipe and turn it 1⁄4 turn in any direction to ensure that the cement completely covers the PVC pipe and the PVC joint. Before placing the pipe to dry, check that the pipe is properly seated in the fitting.


Step 4 - Connect the pipe and coupling to the pipe or the rest of the system


Once the coupling and the pipe are glued together and the adhesive has dried up, all you have to do is connect everything, but before you do, make sure you work with a steady, fast hand. Make sure your surroundings are clean and tidy so that the pipes fit properly with your coupling.
