Dear friends, I need to connect my 6" sewer service into a new construction house, but heres the problem...typically the mason leaves a pvc sleave inside the concrete and extends the pvc about 6-12" outside, so I can just connect a coupler and move on...but, this mason cut the sleeve flush with the concrete walls...any sugggestions on how to connect the 2 pvc lines since theres no way to couple it?

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

6" should be sleeve piping (2 pipes sizes larger)
most all residential plumbing uses a 4" sewer main & sewer tap..
are you sure you have/need a 6 " sewer tap?

Peace

Snap...thank you DR P. You are 100% right...So, that leaves me with a follow up question if you have a minute...we have a 4" line coming from the street, through a 6" sleeve....is there a connection method that you would recommend to prevent water from coming in? any rubber rings etc? or something that can go in between the 4" pipe and 6" hole to make it water-proof? Thank you!!!
