Did this video help you?

firebat128: Thank you so much. These idiots put a metal hose pipe on pvc without supporting it so when I dragged the hose out after dark the pvc broke right at the T joint. This was also the main supply to the house so I need to get it done today.

Leah Dupre: Fantastic. Just what I needed. Thank you so much Karl Morris!!!!

Brent Fisher: I'm sure that works nice but you can also just put solvent on it and then light it on fire

goosecouple: Will a hair dryer work as well as the torch?

nutcannon: Be VERY CAREFUL using fire at a PVC fitting. There could be fumes from a tank or sewer system, etc. DO NOT ignite the fitting using solvent as suggested below. Have a fire extinguisher on hand either way. 

Tanner Stage V: That is fantastic. Hard to do in a tight space but darn handy tip, thanks.

Luc Brousseau: I does work, I've done it a few times when there is no other solutions but instead of a knife, I use a metal blade (I tape half of it to act as an handle), it's easy to see how deep the groove is and it provides a gap to start the peel off.

klgacg: I used a heat gun on Schedule 40 pipe. It worked great. Thanks for the tip.

San Diego SWOT: Equally worked fantastic for me as well- thanks for sharing!

Nicholas Hoffenpiper: Can this be safely done to a home's sewer vent piping? Will the sewer gases catch fire/explode?

Roger Halye: It worked, after discussing with my pool company, and them wanting to replace multiple pipes, Jandy valves, and my Chlorinator, all because this fitting was in the WORST possible predicament. Well - It worked, and I will be gluing (cementing) in a new pipe in the morning, I just hope the cement holds strong!!

Tom Wynn: Great Idea, thanks so much. : )

binnsh: Amazing! Will try this next time I'm desperate.

Paul Terry: This worked beautifully! Thanks for sharing!

Chad Jones: If you proplerly prepare both surfaces of the pvc the the bond becomes permanent and you would not be able to do this . But thanks to all of the lazy plumbers out there he made quick work of the glued fitting . This will likely work in most cases but not all . But good tip to try nonetheless .

Celia Feuerman: Thank you for your assistance! This method worked like a charm on a pipe that was installed 28 years ago and was located in a very awkward spot! We removed a vanity sink that was tightly up against an outside wall and an interior stud and had very little room to work in. The pipe fed a sink in an adjoining bathroom as well as an upstairs bathroom. This took a potentially difficult job and made it very easy!

Jo Bland: Thankyou so much Karl. It's helped me immensely in replacing a bathroom vanity where the pipes had to be moved around.

Donald Easterling: Totally worked for me! Thanks man.

steve schaff: great tip thanks man

Douglas Gubbe: You are a Rock Star!! Thank you so much. You saved hours of frustration. I had the glued fitting off in minutes after watching your video!

johnDEEjones: This worked awesome for me!!! I had to remove an outer coupling and was able to employ this method......worked like a charm!! Thank you very much!

anthony treno: very nice!

Kristoff Rand: nice... thanks. voted.

Patty Collins: My brother tried this on his gas tank and exploded

wellgracious: ROCKS, Karl! I need this desperately right now. Question, tho- will this process, heating the inner piece, cause the outer piece to warp at all? I have to reuse the outer part. Thanks in advance for the answer-

Garo Stone-DerHagopian: Great video! I've never used a torch before, what brand is that one? Thanks!

spampactor: Thanks, helped me with my pool filter big time.

Bosco Hearn: Great tip! With a melting temperature of 160 deg. Celsius I opted to use a heat-gun designed for heat-shrink tubing. This gave me a more controlled heat source as the the diameter of the tip was only about 13mm. I was able to remove schedule 40 broken pipe from 1" hubs with no difficulty -- thanks!

taino1493: Thank you for this video and easy to follow instructions. My kids broke the PVC drain line of my air handler and to make matters worst it broke inside the wall right in the elbow. I followed your instructions and it saved me a big and expensive headache. Once again thank you.

wellgracious: -Oh! Karl, can my heat gun replace the butane torch? How hot does this have to get to peel it?

richard96816: Well done!

Art1ny: Thanks for making this video. Had to remove a short piece of 1" in diameter PVC pipe from a 7 zone sprinkler manifold. It worked like a charm. I used a heat gun instead of the torch. Didn't do the cut either. A little cleaning with sandpaper and cleaner (i used the primer) was needed before the primer and cement.

getherer2: Great thank you!!!

Mark Da Gardna: That was AMAZING!!! First time I ever saw that and I've been in the trades for years...Thanks Mate!

Karl Morris: @spampactor Glad i could help, Feel free to share it

Kris Juarez: Nice tip! Thanks!

TheWoodWerker: Super! I did not know this.Thanks 4 sharing!

Alec Nicewick: It worked beautifully! thanks for the advice.

kosmosleha: why are all handyman videos made by the people with British accent?

daquilema2011: Thanks ! Good idea

George Z.: Really hoping to see gunpowder used in this application in some way! LOL

tim avery: Very cool. Thanks for the video.

Controuve: Thank you... I hope this works for me under the bathroom sink. Seems the only video like this available. Great work. You helped someone across the world. Thank you.

Karl Morris: Thanks Rif27 feel free to share

yetijoeyetijoe: Karl, you saved me a ton of money! My dog jumped on the pipes for the pool to get to a rabbit and busted a pvc elbow connected to a t connector. It was tough to get to it but after about 15 minutes I was able to remove the broken piece from inside the t connector. I bought the torch for $20 USD at Home Depot and the butane was $6 USD. Thanks, again!

allenman85: Excellent! Just about to cut apart a difficult to get to sprinkler system to repair a tee...one torch later the tee looks new and the glue is already setting!! Thank you!!!

Justin Rashaw: I've successfully used a similar technique, though it's MUCH more difficult when the fittings are properly cleaned/glued. If they are cleaned and glued full-socket depth WITH the use of primer as well... it may be impossible to get apart, the use of primer can essentially weld the plastic together so well, that it's not really two separate fittings any more, thus, nearly impossible to get apart (and still use anyway). Nice video though, useful technique that can get you out of a bind!

wellgracious: The coupling I am trying to remove the inner PVC from costs $40.00. So, I am personally grateful for the tip. especially since I have 4 of them to do! OK, $39.95 ea. WHATEVER! They are specially manufactured parts for a ram pump. The local hardware stores don't have these specially m'f'd parts, since they are patented. We may save pennies, but we also save dollars. (except for our bleedin' politicians, of course. They are money addicts!

drach hart: now if you try to glue a new piece it will not hold under pressure

RedKB: Tony I love how you take things to the extreme!! Keep it up inspiring us all!
hondadirtbikesrule: not to bad
reefcreep: Quick note d.c & a.c can kill!. Due to amperage!. If you become part of the circuit and any kind of voltage carrying any small amount of amps feeding a load thru your heart can be deadly. So if you dont understand it, hire a licensed electrican. its not worth ur life to save a few bucks.
