    Nice find!
     
  3. You can also pop that plug out to caulk it in to keep the ants out. One of those great little "why didn't I think of that" products.

    dont mean to get off topic, but when running pvc up a building foundation as in tri lawn cares' post....IS there a type of pvc that is especially resistant string-trimmer abuse?

    nice share

    Brass nipple stock should do it.

    I wouldn't be using a piece of sch 40 PVC water pipe. I would use gray sch 80 Carlon PVC electrical conduit. At the very least I would use sch 40 PVC electrical conduit. The clamps are available in gray to match gray conduit.


    A piece of K copper water pipe will do well also, but I don't know how well the copper will mate up to the JDI sealant clamp in this case.. Outside diameter of the copper pipe will be considerably smaller than a PVC pipe that it is designed to work with... Perhaps you could go with a size larger copper pipe to make up the diff.


    Those string trimmers can do some real destruction in the hands of amateurs...

    Not sure I would want to price out a piece of brass pipe for that application. payup
