    How much PVC pipe should be seated into a fitting for a safe / secure joint

    I know PVC pipe should be seated into a fitting until it reaches the small lip inside the fitting but let's say you're making a repair and you may not be able to achieve full depth. What is acceptable? Note: I'm talking waste / drain line

    I'm not a (obviously) plumber also. What part of the valve on this exploded list is the diverter. I assume you are talking about the cartridge correct?

    CPVC for Tub Spout

    The nipple is brass, stainless drop ear 90 and not sure what the Moen A721 series drop ell is made of. Can you please go into more detail on what you mean about using more tape for the nipple to stick out more?

    Copy Moen product spec says the nipple extends 3/8" out from the finished wall so I'll back set the drop ear 90 back to allow the 3/8" to extend out.

    CPVC for Tub Spout

    CPVC for Tub Spout

So is the general consensus to install threaded drop ear 90 at the tub spout and add copper for the tub spout and add another drop ear 90 for the hand held screwed it to added 2x4 backing and I should be good. or do I need to replace any of the CPVC piping with...
