I am building a paver patio in my backyard and I am burying a 3/4" PVC pipe for irrigation water under the sub base of the patio. There was a straight joint that I could not push in all the way. It's about half way in and I then I couldn't push it in any more. I did manage to turn close to 1/4 turn before it stuck there.
After a few hours of letting it cure, I capped the other end of the pipe and let water through it. No leak for like 20 minutes. Not a single drop.
But since this joint is right beneath the patio and once the paver patio is built, it's not easy to dig things out again.
So, should I be worry about this joint that has the pipe only half-way pushed into the socket? Thanks!
