OK this is ridiculous.
I have what I thought was 'standard' ABS black piping from my sump
pump up about 8 feet and then leaving the house through a basement
On recommendation from a sump pump tech guy, I just bought a second
At the store I asked which of the 4 or 5 models I should buy, the
clerk said they're all basically the same.
I picked the one that looked most like the one I already had.
The package states:
Burke Model 350362
1 1/4" x 1 1/2"
"Union" type check valve.
I take it home and get ready to do my plumbing job.
Wouldn't you know it? The damn valve won't fit over the ABS pipe!
I measured the pipe:
ID: 1 4/8" - 1 5/8",
OD: 1 7/8"
There is no way the ABS pipe is going to fit into this check valve!
Please let this dummy know what type of check valve I need to buy. :(
