bernabeu, thanks! I have bent electrical PVC conduits before, to provide an offset that is too small for two elbows, but those were 3/4" or 1" PVC SCH 80 conduits.

I don't think I want to attempt a 4" SCH 40 pipe bend, I don't it will be successfully because of my lack of skill or experience.

understood

but

you (most times) only need a tiny bend, not an actual 'fitting' bend which can be as little as 11.5 degrees

said smidgeon may oft be obtained using a heat gun and some patience

the thing is, after I measured it, I am off by like 5 to 6 degrees only.

as you said previously, I should be able to get that angle by "flexing" the long run after the 45. I am already getting the alignment properly by inserting that tiny piece of pipe, so it can be aligned with some persuasion.

Some to fix the root problem, cut back the roots on your trench all the way, then when you fell over the repaired pipe with sand, mixes and with some copper sulfate,. After the sand is packed into place play some tar paper over that so that the copper sulfate will not be washed out

ABSOLUTELY POITIVELY DO NOT, REPEAT NOT, PUT SAID PRODUCT DIRECTLY INTO TRENCH

It is not a 'directed use' and therefor a violation of Federal Statute re: hazardous/toxic materials.

This product is a DEADLY and CAUSTIC poison requiring PROPER handling.

ESPECIALLY for Florida with the high water table.

It is HIGHLY soluble and WILL leach into the ground water QUICKLY.


It is designed to treat septic systems.
