Galvanized pipe to PVC
A relative of mine has galvanized drains in her double bowl laundry tub running into a cast iron stack. I would like to change that out to PVC. Its a double bowl laundry tub. I figured two ways of running the drain. The left drain would drain into a tail piece and a 90 then tee into the tailpiece from the right drain. Run another tail piece under the tee and into a j bend and waste arm and into the stack. Does this sound ok? Now since its galvanized steel would I use a no hub coupling at the stack to attach it to PVC?

its kinda hard to "see" in my mind what your describing, so i'll do this
laundry tub has a drain in the midle called a basket strainer....remove it and buy another
demo/remove all piping from sink to drain and replace to the basket strainer with pvc pipe sch 40 dwv
can you post a picture of it? or at least a drawing?
hook up tamdon sinks with a combo on its back so all drains are at same elevation. need picture

buyt. use all 2" pipe. use a 11/2" fitting trap adapter to hook up the basket strainers,and a 2x11/2" bushing

To connect pvc to galvanized pipe do I use a regular coupling or a no hub coupling?

you use a "mission" band,
steel pipe X pvc ask for it at a plumbing supply
they make different sizes so you have tpo know what your connecting
1 1/2 steel pipe X 1 1/2 pvc mission band
or 1 1/2 cast iron X 1 1/2 pvc

can these bans be connected directly to a pvc san tee fitting or do you need a piece of schedule 40 inside each end first before connecting the band?

I know the post is already been closed and sorry for that. Just wanted to know if someone here knows where to get PVC windows and shades near Perth. I have found this site http://coastwideshadesails.com...erproof-shade-sails/, they also offer PVC windows and shades, but their showroom is very far so I can see their actual product. Hopefully someone can guide me. Thanks.

Got to ask, what exactly is a "mission band" ? A regional term methinks.


Popeye only reached for the Spinach can as a last resort...
