re-routing central vacuum pipe
 
I have a central vacuum pipe protruding from the ceiling inbetween joists, in my basement.
It extends approx. 12 inches down right in the middle of the room.

Can I re-route this pvc pipe? (I think it's pvc, some kind of hard plastic and it's approximately 2 inches in diameter).

Presently I do not have central vacuum, but when we built the house I put the rough in for it.

I wanted to re-route it to what eventually will be the furnace room.
Can I cut it and put in an elbow piece and add a straight piece and run it over to where I want it?

Also, how to I attach pvc pipes together? (Glue???????) :laughing:

Central vac pipe installs the same way pvc plumbing pipe does. It is thinwall, though. The material is available at your electrical supply house.
