In response to Re: ABS coupling connection
Either way that you are proposing is a "makeshift" repair. There is no certainty that it will stop the leak, nor that it will make a permanent repair. The proper way is to remove the leaking fitting and replace it.

: I have a leaking ABS coupling leaking on the down side of a vertical DWV . It is in such a place that using a ferco coupling would be very difficult if not impossible. I can dry the coupling with a heat gun but can I use regular cement (abs) to fill the space or could I use RTV is such a situtation? This is in a wall just below the upstairs bathroom.
