Fixing wet PVC pipe
Hi all, turned on my system on as usual (1.5 acres) a couple of the sprinkler heads blew, etc. I've slowly been chaning over to PVC, seems the pressure cracks the old metal heads and weld. Anyhow, I have one run off that I have to change the valve, I've shut down my water system yet there seems to be a slight drip still. 2 days and still dripping. Whenever I've done repairs the PVC joints have always been joined/glued while totally dry, I also use the thread if needed. Can I do the repair (glue) even with the slight drip? or the PVC pipe slightly wet. I had heard of a trick (white bread) that you use to plug the leak temp. while u fix and the bread then disinigrates. I'm going to have to cut and add a couple of adapters. so the piece work can be done before hand. Any advise, hints?
