Re: Compatible Fittings?


I can't imagine a plumbing supply place can't get you what you need?

Either way, you are building a pool and you are worrying about the price? Cheap wont be cheap when you have to dig everything up again.

How do they do what you want to do then? If you called a pool installation company, what would they use.

Not being snarky, just curious. If they dont have what you are trying to do, maybe there is a reason?

Re: Compatible Fittings?


Most use the flexible hose, and most pool builders wouldnt care about using a sharp 90. Im building my pool to be as energy efficient as possible, using the most efficient equipment. Its built with insulated concrete forums, even running hydronic floor heat thru a custom made wood boiler. So basically a sharp 90 would work, 2-45s would be better, but a long sweep 90 would IMO kick ass. Not to say it would be worth it in the end but at least i can say i did my best

Fill straight pipe with sand, use a blanket PVC heater and bend it to the radius you want.

Re: Compatible Fittings?


I kinda like that idea as long as it doesnt take away strength, but really youd think it should be stronger by eliminating a glue joint. I guess the purpose of sand would be to keep the pipe from compressing into the bend?

You win until the outside of the bend blows out because it got thinner due to the stretching. :

Nope, he loses.

If you do it correctly the outer wall stays the same thickness and the inner wall get fatter. Don't stretch the outer bend, compress the inner bend.

No fighting here, just pointing out potential.

I've heat-bent my share of PVC, but I draw the line if it's getting buried. I want that up to factory specs.
