Thread: Liuidator PVC holes

    Liuidator PVC holes

    I may not use the Liquidator anymore, possibly moving to Saltwater. Wanted to know what are my options for closing the 2 holes on the PVC Pipe. Do they sell any plugs where I can put a plug in and in the future if i say don't go with the saltwater conversion to just "unplug" a plug or something?

    Yes, you should be able to get a threaded plug the same size. You may need to look around a little, but they should be available. If you have the original installation instructions with the size threaded opening it needed it will help find the plug.

    Re: Liuidator PVC holes

    so if the instructions say to drill a 3/8 inch hole, do I get a 3/8 inch plug? And do it take out the steel clamp and all and just put the new plug right into the PVC pipe? Does anyone have a link to this plug at say home depot or lower? Sorry I'm a complete idiot when it comes to this stuff.

    After you drilled the hole didn't you use a tap to cut threads into,the hole? I thought the Liquidator threaded into the pipe. That would be the size you want.

    Without that you could use a steel band pipe repair clamp which is basically a flat,piece of,rubber you wrap around the pipe and secure with band clamps.

    You could just cut the pipe and put a coupling in. Then no worries about another spot that could leak.
