 ABS MIP ADAPTER
Author: eflow

Does anyone know where I can find a 1-1/4" ABS pressure male iron pipe adapter? It looks to have a 1-3/8" outside diameter. This is for domestic water on a well system in a trailer court.

"ABS" or PVC? Is there a pressure rated ABS?

I have never seen pressure rated ABS fittings.(They might be out there) Is is black or dark grey? If it is dark grey it might be schedule 80 PVC as apposed to black ABS.

It is black and it is ABS the owner installed it in the 70's, I have repaired the smaller lines to the trailers before with CPVC and a compression coupling, when they were 3/4" and buried, but this in the pump house and I have two 1-1/4" lines coming out of the ground so there is no way to repair them without a male or female adapter to change to PVC or copper. It has a very thin wall because it is 1-1/4" with a 1-3/8" outside diameter. I don't know if it is rated for pressure but He installed it that way.

Then the problem you are seeing is the tip of the iceberg.

Back in the "old days" there was pressure rated ABS, but it was usually used by the gas companies, and water utilities for the feeds to the water meters, and by plumbers from the water meter to the house.

You can't, so you will have to improvise, either with an insertable barbed fitting, which is what it probably had originally, or some type of compression device.
