In response to Re: PVC to Cast Iron Bell
You cannot use lead or lead wool to seal a PVC pipe, since the pipe is soft and will deflect rather than the lead sealing the joint.

: I would like to fit new 4" PVC into an existing bell from an old bell & spigot joint. I plan to use a die grinder and carbide burr to cut the Cast pipe that's in the bell, insert the PVC, pack with Oakum, then pack with lead wool. Will this be a properly sealed assembly?

: Thanks for your help.
