Electrical Conduit Work Demands the Right PVC Pipe Bending System

Posted by

Underslab work is demanding. Not only do you have to compete for space with rebar and/or remesh, but you've got to get it perfect the first time. When you say you're done, everything you just did is going to be permanently cased in concrete, and from there, a mistake is a disaster. Add on to that the fact that you're going to have a concrete crew working right on top of your work, and you've got more than a little cause for concern. Any electrical conduit work demands the right PVC pipe bending system.

The fact is, until now, there has been no definitive solution for bending your conduit to fit the exact specifications for the jobs you're going to tackle. Electricians and plumbers alike have been offered dozens of gadgets and methods in the years gone by, but the fact is that even the best of them feel a little improvised. Every existing conduit bending solution has been a byproduct of another process or a casual observation of the properties of PVC lent to tools that are already on hand. Anyone who has used a heat gun to bend electrical conduit can tell you that it works, but that you've got to keep your hands, eyes and your mind on the process every second of the way to keep from screwing something up. The fact is, it's a pain in the ass. Once you get to larger diameters and you're filling them up with sand for the hundredth time, you tend to ask yourself whether or not there's a better way.

The same goes for the boxes. They're big, bulky, expensive, stinky and they take too much babysitting to use. If you're bending rigid nonmetallic conduit with a box bender, you've got to have one guy who is in constant contact with the pipe to ensure that it heats evenly. On top of that, you practically have to sell a testicle to get one, they're just that expensive.

Let's not even get into length when we're talking about these. It's the same with both methods: with a lot of juggling and improvisation, you can get a pretty long bend, but they're just not really designed for it.
Enter the PVC Bendit. This tool was designed specifically to bend PVC and other thermoplastic pipes. It was designed to be easy to use and to have nearly hands-free operation. Available in lengths of up to 9', it is designed to allow you to make whatever bends your jobs are going to throw at you.

With this tool, you can get into any situation, whether underslab, inside of walls or exposed conduit installations knowing that you can shape your conduit any way it might need to go. When you're working with conduits, it's easy to have the prepared explanations for your clients of what you can and can't do. A lot of times in the past, you may have needed to tell someone that something wasn't possible because of the nature of your materials. With PVC Bendit, your rigid nonmetallic conduit has the forming versatility of a flexible conduit with the shape memory of rigid material. Whether you're just crossing 90-degree bends to come up out of the slab or you're running exposed conduit on the outside of a curved wall, this tool renders the pipe completely and evenly flexible so you can reshape it to its exact surroundings.
