    When the pipe is tightly mounted and it will not move use a repair coupling or, slip coupling on one side. It is a coupling that does not have a stop and can slide completely over the pipe.
    I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    Now I can Plumb!

    For great information on the history of sanitary sewers including the use of Redwood Pipe

    Did you know some Redwood Pipe is still in service today.

    you might want to add that in a lot of cases if the copper line has froze to the point it has a rupture, the new couplings will not go on the old lines, So you might want to explain how to expand the coupling so they will fit. I know real often this is a real problem. later paul
