I need to find an "inside coupler" or "inside coupling". This is to fix an
ABS solar heating manifold. I could take about five hundred words to
explain it, but I won't, as to why this one and only part is the part to fix
what I need.
The solar repair guys came once and fixed it for $125. That consisted of
sawing a piece of pipe, inserting this inside coupler inside the pipe, and
regluing it. I decided after I watched them that the next time I needed it
done, I would save about $123.
Fast forward to last week. After going to about ten supply houses, I found
a PVC 2" inside coupling for $5.50. This thing is about five inches long,
has two male ends that are tapered to fit INSIDE a piece of 2" pipe, and a
raised collar in the middle. $5.50 seemed a bargain, so I got one.
I know where I can get more now, but would like to use ABS, as that is what
the rest of the system is made of. But I can't find them.
Anyone know what I'm talking about and where to get them? I've been to
about fifty sites I got from Google, but haven't seen it yet. Ace has them,
but only in 3".
I will continue to buy the PVC ones, and use PVC/ABS glue if I can't find
regular ABS. $6 is better than $125.
