Rockler 4'' Hose Connector for PVC Sewer Pipe

The large end of this connector fits into Schedule 20 PVC, while the smaller end attaches to any 4" dust hose. The PVC connection requires silicone adhesive (sold separately) and the hose can be fixed with a metal clamp (sold separately). Schedule 20 (PVC sewer pipe) is thin walled PVC pipe commonly found at home centers.


The term "Schedule 20" merely refers to the wall thickness of the pipe. When inquiring at your local sources, it is best to ask for thin wall sewer/drainage pipe (rather than asking for "Schedule 20"). It may be difficult to find this pipe via online sources as it is typically sold in 10 ft. lengths.

Works with sched. 40!!!
While this is designed as a direct connect to sched. 20 PVC and many people, like myself, can't find sched. 20 PVC locally I just connected one of these to a piece of sched. 40 PVC. I applied heat to the end 2"-3" of the pipe, both inside and out, with a handheld propane torch while rolling the pipe slowly to keep from scorching the plastic. Then slip this fitting into the end of the pipe quickly and squarely (a block of wood and light hammer taps or gently pushing the pipe down onto the fitting on the floor help) to fully seat the fitting. Once the plastic cools it shrinks back and holds the fitting snugly.

I don't think any clamps or caulk are necessary. In fact, I imagine this would be better than sched. 20 as it will result in a tighter fit in the end.

I also imagine the same results could be had with the black ABS DWV, though that plastic will (I believe) melt at a lower temperature.
The adapter installed in sched. 40 PVC.

Hose to PVC Connection
While the instructions tell you to put this on one way I found in my case I had to put it on reversed because of the type of PVC pipe I am using. It works great and the fit is perfect.

Easy connection from 4" DWV to flex
I bought some of these for my PVC dust collection system and are highly recommended to make the connection from the PVC to flex hose. Remember to seal the connection between fitting and duct with silicone, and ground your system from the collector to the tool as PVC is not a conductor and can build up a static electrical charge. I purchased some more of these from a competitors store and they were cheaper quality. I recommend these.

Why use schedule 40 PVC for vacuum. Cut cost with these fittings, and use scedule 35 drain pipe! Rocker's thinking of us!

These work well going from 4" sewer pipe to dust collection system. Take note however, they sell two different ones. One goes from sewer pipe to dust collection fitting. The other goes from sewer pipe fitting to dust collection hose. I was reordering this one and accidentally ordered the other.

To connect a short length of 4" flex hose to 4" PVC S&D drain pipe at both ends.
Gerald G on Oct 13, 2015
It is worth the price to avoid the hassle of trying to Mickey Mouse the connection between the sewer pipe and flex hose. The metal blast gates fit very snugly in the sewer pipe but some branches in my dust collection system require a direct connection between the flex hose and a Wye or other fitting.

Upgrading system to PVC
RODNEY B M on May 3, 2017
What are the OD and ID of both ends?
Dave R on Nov 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: inside diameter at both ends is 3 5/8". outside diameter at one end is 4" and the other end is 3 7/8"
Will this work with 4" ABS (black) pipe? SCH 20 PVC is no longer available at the Big Box Stores but ABS is...
Myeloman on Sep 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it won't. I've been all over today trying to find the schedule 20. Not at Lowes or HD. I wish they'd make an adaptor to fit to the white thinner 4" drain pipe commonly found. This doesn't fit.
