I need to tee into a 3" ABS sewer pipe. The line is buried, and I have dug
a trench into where I am going to tie into the line with a tee. I went to
Home Depot, and they have a "quick tee" which is a 3" rubber tee with three
I have been trying to run this tie in through in my mind using another
method, like cutting out a piece of pipe, gluing a tee on the line and a
small pup on the other end, and then a rubber sleeve to tie that back into
the line. I know they have a tee that has a male and a female side, but
that will take a sleeve to join it together, too. Any way I go, I will end
up cutting a piece or two, and using a rubber connector, as I cannot raise
the line to get the parts together. I see the 2" or so sleeve connectors,
but inside, they have a ridge in the center that makes it look like it would
have trouble sliding down the pipe until you got the ends just right, then
slide it into position.
Is this rubber "quick tee" a good way to go? It sure would be the easiest.
How long will that rubber last?
