I am trying to cut the water lines to my washing machine because I have two cats now and afraid they will possibly get near the fixture near my washing machine. One cat now weighs 8 lbs. I have to go under house and cut the PVC pipe and put a cap on that pipe. Going to do the PVC pipe (cold water) first and then do the CPVC (hot water) later.
I went to Home Depot and the guy there gave me what I needed to do a few tests with PVC pipe from water faucet outside of house like I suggested. Never have did this before and want to see if the glue holds the PVC pipe together and does not leak. However, when I tried to place the PVC pipe and the cap together I barely got the cap to go on. The fit was very tight. I was thinking does the pipe have to be sandpapered any. That is not the same as chamfering pipe. Maybe sandpaper pipe slightly on outside of it and use small file to take out say 1/100th of an inch out of interior of cap just so pipe and cap will have tight fit but not too tight where it is hard to put them together. Allow primer and glue to cover area being glued then twist 30 degrees for a good seal where leaking with not occur.
Just discovered that I got 1 inch pipe from Home Depot. Have to go under house and see what size pipe is there. May have to go to plumbing store to get pipe less than one inch. Don't know what the diameter is under house. Guy who put den on house and my dad apparently didn't have access to internet back then so did their best with knowledge they had. Guy who put den on house was expert builder who did building for 30 years or so. Hopefully with internet I can do this myself without calling plumber. Save about 200 dollars.
