How Hot is too hot for sch. 40 PVC?
I am having a problem with some 1" PVC I installed on an air conditioning system a few months back. I have 2400 feet of 1" PVC 6' under ground. I have an inlet and an outlet at the unit. On the inlet and outlet I have a Ball valve a T with a pressure Gage another T with a charging valve.(hose bib) . My problem is The T's are cracking every couple of weeks. The water is only getting in the low 120's. I have had three call backs in 2 months and it is in one or more of the T's. I'm at my WITS end.:furious: Can anyone shed some light here?
