INTRODUCTION: The Kwik Seal is a simple all-rubber compression-type seal that makes a flexible watertight connection between pipes and concrete structures.
Watertight connectors come in a variety of shapes and sizes but maybe you've never seen how the take-up clamps work and how they can be a vital key to the entire process of sealing storm or sanitary collection systems.
Mortaring watertight storm sewers in the pipe joints does not work. When mortaring is specified, most agencies use ASTM C270 for pipe joints and connectors in storm water projects. Mortar does not adhere to plastic, metal or even most concrete without a bonding agent. Rigid mortar joints are […]
Are you using our new line of Econoseal on manholes and could use some quick easy tricks to make the install even faster? Let’s face it, no one is perfect and we all could use a few tips on how to be more efficient. Especially when using a new product like our Econoseal for 18-24” PVC pipes.
Kwik Seal is a pipe to manhole connector for storm water and sewer applications. Kwik Seal profiles can be used in cast or cored manholes and the unique outside lip design prevents the connector from being pushed into the hole when a pipe is inserted.
Do you need a simple way of knowing what PSX: Direct Drive product you need?
The answer to this question is yes and no. A PSX: Direct Drive technically starts at a hole size range of 9:00 – 9.20” (229 – 234mm), but our 8QRS PSX: Direct Drive does work in an 8” hole. The 8QRS is manufactured to make the installation of small diameter pipes into manholes a simpler process. It […]
Knowing why a manhole connector leaks is just as important as knowing which manhole connector is right for your job. So why do they leak?
What Is A Manhole Connector? If your specifications call for a manhole connector to meet or exceed ASTM C 923, you might want to check out one (or all) of these options.
You might be required to mortar manhole connectors inside your structures. Maybe you are concerned about materials gathering between the pipe and the connector. You might mortar the connectors because that's the way it's always been done.
