Installing 4" no-hub coupler
I'm looking for some advice on installing 2-4"
no hub couplers on a 4" horizontal cast iron soil pipe? I'm doing a repair that requires adding a pvc fitting. Thanks

Use a fernco coupling, they slip over the pipe so you can position fitting your wanting to add. Then set coupling and tighten.

Sorry for the hijack....but this is kinda related....

Ron, the other day I was at lowes and they have quite a selection of flexible fittings, long sweep wyes, T's etc. Have you ever used then, do you know if they work well? I don't have a specific application, but I can see where they could be handy in the right situation.

Just wondering...
