 o
Copper to PVC

Posted by mike_kaiser (My Page) on

I'm in the middle of re-tiling a bathroom floor that will necessitate a change in the height of the closet flange. What's there now is a 3" copper and there's absolutely no play in the pipe, nor practical (easy) way to change it.

I've played with a couple of plastic fittings and I can get the required height but I need a way to transition to copper. I looked at a couple of rubber couplings but didn't see anything likely to work.

Are there specific PVC to copper couplings?

I looked at Fernoc but couldn't find the the right fitting. Looked again and found it under their "Proflex" series. If I'm reading it right, it's 3007-33 for "plastic, steel, or heavy wall cast iron to copper.

Now to find one. They don't seem very common!

3" copper? Are you positive it's copper? Regardless you will need to find the Fernco perhaps at a professional supply store.

Absolutely positive it's copper.
