Joining PVC


I'm trying to install a short section of 4" PVC to connect two existing sections end to end. Neither existing section can be moved to adjust for length, as they're underground. What is the best way to do this? What kind of couplings should I use?

Thanks in advance

You can use a Fernco coupling, make sure you get the correct size, might have to go to a plumbing store for 4 inch.

Thay also make a hard sleeve coupling... but you will need a plumbing specialty dealer/store.

Ayuh,.... That's what I'd use,....

Slip 'em onto the existin' pipes, drop in the new piece, 'n slide the ferncos into position, 'n tighten 'em down,....

2, 4" PVC repair coupling will also work if you can find them.
Just a regular coupling with no hub in the middle so it can be slid over the pipe.
