Customer Question

I have two 4" pvc fitting butted up against each other, the pvc pipe inside is all the way in. Is there a minimum clearance between the distances of pvc pipe fittings? There is about a 1/8 inch clearance between the two bends. Will it pass inspection? Is it a code violation and why?

You can but any 2 PVC fittings tight together. There is no code requirement to the contrary. Yes this particular issue should pass inspection
