Hi,

how do you straighten a PVC pipe which has a slight bend?
like when you roll the pipe on the floor it wobbles a bit ... how can this problem be fixed?

thanks

you can heat it up. If you have a torch do it that way, but use even heat or you will melt the pvc.

I have used heated sand to straighten out PVC. I just took a bucket-o-sand and put it in my fireplace. Then once it was nice and hot I poured it into the pipe and rolled it till straight.

Heck, the stuff is cheap enough, chunk it in the trash and go buy a new one
