In response to Re: ABS repair
: I have 3 inch ABS as drain pipe. About a 6 foot section has cracked at the seem and is leaking. I have never done repairs on plastic pipe but would like to atempt using fernco fittings. How close to a coupling can I safely cut; ie, is two inches enough for the fernco? How does one get a fernco fitting on easily----soap it----wd-40---how? How much ABS needs to be seated into the fernco? Is ABS easy to cut in place?

: Thx---I know these are dumb questions: taxes i am good at---Plumbing---No!

dale:

thx for the quick answer. the ferncos i bought are an unbroken thick rubber sleeve with two hose type clamps. are these ok for inside drains?
also----these are tight to get on---can one use some type grease, wd-40, soap, any other to make slipping these on easier? are these different than the type you suggested?

thx for your time.
