Force??? Heat??? Solvent??? Hack Saw & replace???

I want to fix the dishwasher. The folks that installed it used the wrong type of sealant and it leaks. I need to take the pipes apart and remove the old sealant and use the right stuff. I guess they used purple stuff when they should've used red or high pressure stuff or something like that. Any advice would be appreciated...

For the price of just doing the dishwasher plumbing, I would cut it all out and replace it using the proper glue. It wouldn't cost much at all, and you know it's right.

^^^^^X2 I work on PVC sprinklers quite a bit and the only way to get it right is cut and replace.

Are you trying to get the pipe out of a fitting?

Just cut the pipe flush with the end of the fitting
then make two small cuts thru the inside of the pipe about a 1/4" apart, don't cut thru the fitting
take a small screwdriver and a hammer and slowly tap and pry the around the pipe and fitting and it should come right out. Don't beat or pry real hard, just go easy and it will come out, then clean and re-glue the pipe and fitting.

Or cut it all out and start over?

The purple is a primer / cleaner and the glue is usually clear, maybe it was not properly cleaned and glued. Re-clean/prime the pipe and fitting, then glue the pipe and fitting, push them together and give it a 1/4 turn and hold it together for a few seconds.

Don't try to "fix" the existing leak, that will only lead to problems. If it's black PVC you only need glue. If it's white you need the purple primer then the glue. Just cut it all out and replace. It's possible that the original pipe didn't get enough glue, that's why it leaks. Make sure you cover the entire area.

You could also try one of these, Pasco ram bits They sell them from 1/2" thru 4" bits.

The black pipe is A.B.S pipe
The white pipe is P.V.C pipe
The almond color pipe is C.P.V.C pipe
Make sure you us the proper glue for the pipe

You do not need primer for A.B.S. pipe and fittings, just P.V.C. and C.P.V.C pipe and fittings need priming and glue.

The Grey pipe can be one of two types of pipe, P.V.C. (Polyvinyl Chloride) or P.B. (Polybutylene)

A.B.S. (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) Black plastic pipe

C.P.V.C. (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride) Almond color plastic pipe

P.V.C. (Polyvinyl Chloride) White or Grey, White is for D.W.V. ( Drain, waste and vent) Grey is usually for electrical

P.B. (Polybutylene) Grey pipe is for water lines.



The stuff under your finger nails is for when you get hungry during the day......
