Laminate Flooring - Is It Installed Under Bathroom Cabinets?


Also, just to make sure I am STARTING with the right 2 pieces, this is what I bought to start with on this bare pipe. The coupler on the right with the reducer glued into it (on the left) both placed on top of this bare pipe. Are these the proper parts? Also, does it matter if I glue the reducer into the coupler first, or glue the coupler onto the bare pipe first? The last time I did this, the reducer didn't fit in there too well by hand, so I rubber malleted it in there once I applied the primer and glue to get as flush a fit as possible.



Thanks!

Those are the parts needed.

It does not matter what gets glued first, make sure you prime 1st, let primer dry and apply a good coat of glue, let fitting take a good hold before moving on to the next step.

Ok, thanks Ron - And no extra precautions/steps I need to take due to there being chips out of the side of the pipe coming up out of the floor then? No extra cement or anything?

Just make sure you apply a good coating, so it seals good.

Considering that you are running out of pipe then I would suggest that you may try to use a rubber connector with metal tension rings (fernco). This will allow you to tighten the rubber coupler on the pipe that has chips on it. If the coupler is glued again and leaks then you will be running out of pipe and the only option is to dug up the cement slab.

It's so hard to get a good shot due to all the primer and the distance constraints (it's against the wall) -- I circled where there is a chip missing from the back of the pipe though, it's like a sliver of it is off. There's a few spots like that on it.

Is this the fernco piece or do you mean something else? This would go overtop the exposed bare pipe in the photo above then I would just run the PVC down into it from the vanity glue-free, right? The only issue I see here I think the pipe in the photo is only 2" wide and these seem way wider.

Looks like there is plenty of surface for a glue joint, but if you want to use a fernco, then use a 2 x 1-1/2" and take it from there.

If you glue it, sand the surface of that pipe lightly and prime and glue it, have a block of wood ready so if the fitting has a fit seating all the way down, use block to intice it to fully seat.

If you even wanted to you could saw off the chipped area and you would still have plenty of stub left for the glued joint.

If me I'd do a glue joint.

How does this look? I assume since there is a band at the bottom and the top I don't need to use any glue at all when inserting the PVC into the top, just insert, get it to the proper location and tighten? I should have done this right from the start -- It allows me to pull out the sink/vanity if I ever need to without having to cut through pipe.

I'm second guessing myself. Someone else just told me that's an underground only fitting, and I should buy one that looks like this for this job:

What to do guys?

It worked great! I was even able to use the old piece because I cut it low enough and the lip of this stuck up so much higher. So far so good anyway -- If I need to rebuild the inside vanity works, I have all the parts, but for now it's working splendidly!!!

Either one would have worked but this one would be used more for heavier applications where larger cast iron would be used.
