Gasketed PVC?

1084 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  1idejim
I've never really used the gasketed and I've got a spec on my desk calling for the main to be 2" gasketed and the laterals to be solvent weld.

What is the advantage of gasketed PVC over solvent weld?

Gasketed has a little "wiggle room" to it. You have to use thrust blocks to keep it in place.
Thermal, soil shifting, lack of perfect trench alignment, and withstanding shock from water hammer. Do you also have a spec for backfilling with sand?
