 pvc to terracotta drain pipe
Author: Anonymous User

Hi, does anyone know how I can couple pvc pipe to old terracotta pipe? I need to replace a piece of my underground terracotta drainpipe and will use pvc. Thanks!

Jpee, use an adapter Fernco style coupling. Here is a link to the coupling(click on the clay to plastic link) - [www.fernco.com]

As Steve has suggested they make a rubber fernco especially for that transition. I have already used 5" no-hub clamps. The 5" clamps fits on to the clay pipe and it also fits on the hub of plastic pipe. I would also install a short piece of pipe inside fitting to keep inside smooth. The fernco works best but the 5" clamps may one day pull you out of a jam. GOOD LUCK

Plumbing supply stores, and possibly Home Depot have the Fernco transition fitting.
