|In response to Re: PVC to Cast Iron Bell|
A Ty-seal gasket is a formed rubber piece that fits into a bell. The pipe is lubricated and slides into it, (albeit not always very easily which is why they make an assemblydisassembly jack), It is a fairly precise fit in order to prevent leakage so if the old hub is not to the Ty-seal specifications or is badly corroded it will not work or may leak
: : : 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?
