For "True" 90o
No modification. Assemble the elbow and coupling.
For drainage bend "DWV
90" (Up to 1/4" per foot):
Cut off removable tab at the end of the All-Bend® elbow. Assemble
the elbow and coupling. When assembled without the removable tab, a fully seated
All-Bend® elbow and coupling will produce a fitting with approximately
1/4" per foot slope from vertical.
For 22 1/2o (1/16
bend), 33 3/4o (3/32 bend), 45o (1/8 bend), 56 1/2o (5/32
bend), 67 1/2o (3/16 bend) and 78 3/4o (7/32 bend):
Cut the All-Bend® elbow along one of the premarked guides, then assemble
the elbow and coupling.
For all other bends 22 1/2o
Measure angle required and cut the All-Bend® elbow using the measuring
templates provided on the card inside of box. Assemble the elbow and coupling.
For bends less than 22 1/2o
Measure angle required and cut the All-Bend® elbow using measuring
templates provided on card inside of box. Cut the coupling at "DWV" line.
Assemble the elbow and coupling.
Both parts of the All-Bend® must be assembled together to produce a usable fitting.
Usage of a certified PVC primer
and solvent is necessary to comply with section 316.1.6 of the 2000 Uniform Plumbing Code. For ABS, apply the appropriate ABS cement.
Prior to applying primer or cement, bevel the outside edge of the elbow and remove burrs to
Apply primer to the inside curved
socket of the All-Bend® coupling (including alignment flat). Apply
primer to the outside surface of the All-Bend® elbow (after cutting to desired
angle) for at least the depth of the inside curved socket of the All-Bend®
Care must be taken to evenly
distribute the cement. You will be unable to rotate parts for cement distribution once the
pieces are assembled. Apply a moderate even coating of cement to the primed areas on
the All-Bend® coupling. Quickly apply a heavy even coat of cement to the
primed areas on the All-Bend® elbow.
Immediately align flat on outside
of the All-Bend® elbow with the alignment flat inside curved socket of the
coupling. Insert elbow into socket of coupling until fully seated the depth of
socket. Hold in position until cement cures. Allow time for joint to develop
adequate handling strength.
Note: To achieve best results,
the All-Bend® elbow must be accurately cut to the desired angle and firmly
seated with the All-Bend® coupling.
